Sixers' Young out tonight vs. Celtics

Thaddeus Young is sick and will not play tonight against Boston, coach Doug Collins told reporters before the game.

Tony Battie will get the start, with Nik Vucevic coming off the bench to give the Sixers some spark. Vucevick was initially slated to start his second consecutive game.

Battie will be making his 10th start of the season.
