Lavoy Allen will miss his fourth consecutive game when the 76ers take on the Miami Heat Friday night at the Wells Fargo Center.
Allen, who had been sidelined with a strained right calf, said he felt pain in his left knee while sprinting before Wednesday’s game against the Charlotte Bobcats. The 6-foot-9, 255-pounder’s knee pain comes from a previous injury that sidelined him in the preseason.
He said the “plan” is to return Saturday night at the Chicago Bulls.
“I feel a little bit better,” Allen said after Friday morning’s shootaround at Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine. “Hopefully tomorrow I will be ready to go. The calf is fine.”
