THOMAS SITS, BROWN MENDING The Wizards were without backup center Etan Thomas, who sat out with a sinus infection. He's listed as day-to-day.
Coach Doug Collins said rookie Kwame Brown, who suffered a sprained right ankle against New York in the season opener, isn't expected back until Wednesday's game in Boston.
DON'T COUNT US OUT That's the battle cry of the 76ers, who came to town minus league MVP Allen Iverson, starting point guard Eric Snow and the league's top sixth man, Aaron McKie.
This doesn't bode well for a team that won the Eastern Conference last season but is sometimes viewed as an afterthought to reach the same lofty goals. Iverson and McKie should be back within a next week, but Snow, the team's starting point guard last season, won't be back until after the new year following thumb surgery.
Snow sneered at pessimistic observers, saying, "[The season is] here, and there's not anything you can do about it. The main thing is that we be vocal and support each other as much as we can. We went through a lot last season to get where we did. We'll be fine."
