Sixers shuffle starters again

After Monday night's experiment with Thaddeus Young in the starting lineup to deal with a smaller -- and injury depleted -- Orlando team, the Sixers are returning to their previous starting five for the home finale against Indiana.

Sixers shuffle starters again

After Monday night's experiment with Thaddeus Young in the starting lineup to deal with a smaller -- and injury depleted -- Orlando team, the Sixers are returning to their previous starting five for the home finale against Indiana.

Jrue Holiday, Andre Iguodala, Nik Vucevic, Jodie Meeks and Elton Brand will start vs. the Pacers.

The Sixers are 3-5 when that lineup starts the game. Doug Collins has used 12 different combinations of starters this season. This is equal to the second-most popular.

The most popular, of course, was the lineup that went 10-2 with Spencer Hawes in the middle at the start of the season.

The Sixers also announced that Craig Brackins is not with the team for personal reasons.
