Elton Brand is expected to return for the 76ers this weekend, and the team is hoping to continue running as they have while the forward has been out with a separated shoulder.
"We really need to get up and down more in practice probably, but it looks like [Brand] is ready to go," point guard Andre Miller said. "It's big for this team, [but] we still want to continue what we've been doing. I think he's had an opportunity to sit on the side and watch. He's prepared himself for that.
"It's pretty mental now," Miller said. "We don't want to look at him coming back being a distraction on the chemistry and all that type of stuff. He's a player that can adjust to a certain situation, and I think he'll do that."
