The Philadelphia 76ers won’t have SGs Alec Burks and Glenn Robinson for Friday’s game against the Memphis Grizzlies. Josh Richardson is questionable to return.

Burks and Robinson were acquired in a trade with the Golden State Warriors late Wednesday night prior to the deadline, which was Thursday at 3:00 p.m. ET. Both are expected to play a role off the bench for Philly, which has been lacking 3-point shooting. With Richardson possibly returning, the Sixers could have some more depth at guard until Burks and Robinson are cleared to debut.
