Hawes out for Sixers tonight

Keeping an eye on Spencer Hawes' minute limitations will not be something coach Doug Collins will have to worry about tonight against the Miami Heat. Colllins announced before the game that the Sixers starting center would be held out of tonight's game and play tomorrow when the team travels to Chicago to take on the Bulls.

Hawes right now is limited to playing no more than five minutes at a stretch and isn't going to play back-to-back games. Collins said in order to keep Hawes on some kind of consistent schedule he would hold him out tonight then let him play tomorrow.

In his return to the starting lineup Wednesday in Indianapolis after missing 27 of the previous 29 games, Hawes scored six points, grabbed two rebounds and committed five fouls in just under 20 minutes as the Sixers lost to the Pacers, 111-94.
