  • “I am good,” Turner said after this morning’s shootaround. “I am going to go out and compete tonight. It wasn’t too serious.”

    Holiday gave a similar positive prognosis.

    “Today was the first time I went full speed and put pressure on my foot and we will see tonight how it goes,” Holiday said. “I am excited to get back there.”

    Before tonight’s game, Sixers general manager Tony DiLeo will also give an update on Andrew Bynum, who visited with Dr. David Alchek on Thursday for an examination on his chronically injured knees.

    Bynum had said on Sunday he hoped to be cleared for contact after the exam.
