Philadelphia 76ers vs Boston Celtics NBA Basketball Sports Betting Odds and Predictions

It's no secret that injuries have seriously haunted the Philadelphia 76ers in recent years.

During a dramatic win Monday night -- Philadelphia's fifth in the last six games -- over the Toronto Raptors, the injury bug bit the Sixers again.

With the club still uncertain about when rookie Markelle Fultz's shoulder will allow him to return, J.J. Redick suffered what the club called "bone edema and small Cortical crack in the left fibula," that will be re-evaluate in 10-to-14 days.

Redick has been very good for the Sixers (20-20), averaging 17.3 points per game -- 5.1 higher than his career average. He is 40.5 percent on 3-pointers and 94.6 percent from the foul line after signing a one-year, $23 million free agent contract.

The Sixers, whose only loss in the last six games was against the Celtics in London last Thursday, will also be without bench piece Richaun Holmes for a second straight game when they visit Boston on Thursday night.

Holmes is out because of gastroenteritis. He is averaging 6.8 points and 4.8 rebounds in 16.4 minutes per game off the bench.

Joel Embiid scored 34 points and grabbed 11 rebounds Monday in a contest that included a scuffle between Philadelphia's Ben Simmons and Dwight Lowry.

The Sixers blew a 22-point first-half lead to the Celtics in London. They blew a 22-point lead against the Raptors and lost on Toronto's previous visit and then hung on after squandering a 21-point lead Monday.

They turned the ball over seven times in the fourth quarter Monday.

The Celtics, playing only their second game in 11 days, lost to Anthony Davis and the New Orleans Pelicans at TD Garden on Tuesday night.

It may not be that simple. Irving revealed Wednesday he has a sore left shoulder and is questionable for Thursday. Add in sickness striking Marcus Smart, Guerschon Yabusele and Abdel Nader, and there is uncertainty on both sides in the latest renewal of this long-time rivalry.

The Celtics have won 13 of the last 14 games against the Sixers, winning the last seven at TD Garden.

A few days earlier, the coach said, "I think what he needs to be is able to shoot a basketball. I don't know what percent we're going to apply that comment, but he needs to feel he can go and shoot a basketball. To just render it that the free throw is pretty good, and it is, and to only go that far without talking about some of the other pieces, is not what we are looking at, and I know he isn't looking at that."
