Sixers and coach Doug Collins prepare for season opener against visiting Miami Heat

The Big Three and the rest of the Miami Heat will visit the Wells Fargo Center tomorrow night after opening their season tonight at Boston.

Coach Doug Collins announced that his starting lineup will be Jrue Holiday, Andre Iguodala, Jason Kapono, Elton Brand and Spencer Hawes.

Iguodala again did not practice due to a sprained right wrist. He said he can't do anything with the wrist but hopes to be ready for tomorrow night. He also said he hasn't shot a ball in close to four days.

As much as he wants to be in the lineup, it's looking more and more like he won't be able to go. If that's the case, rookie Evan Turner could be thrown into the starting lineup.

The Sixers will hold a shootaround at 10 a.m. tomorrow, at which time Iguodala's status should be more clear.

Miami will be making its only visit of the season. The Heat are the most talked about team in the NBA with newcomers LeBron James and Chris Bosh joining Dwyane Wade.
