SHENZHEN, China — Dario Saric isn't playing in Monday morning's game against the Dallas Mavericks because of lower back soreness.
The 76ers power forward is listed as day to day. The team is not concerned, but still decided to rest him in the final preseason game.
The Sixers are playing the Mavericks at the Shenzhen Universiade Centre in the second of two NBA China Games meetings between the teams. The Sixers won Friday morning's game, 120-114, at the Mercedes-Benz Arena in Shanghai.
Mike Muscala started in place of Saric on Monday.
