76ers Limp Into Laker Shootout

October 21, 1994|SCOTT HOWARD-COOPER

The Philadelphia 76ers will be without 7-foot-6 center Shawn Bradley and key frontcourt reserve Scott Williams for at least the rest of the exhibition schedule because of injuries, a stretch that begins tonight with the GTE Everything Pages Shootout at the Forum, the two-day tournament that also includes the Lakers, Orlando Magic and Denver Nuggets.

Bradley, returning to action after sitting out the second half of his rookie season because of a dislocated left kneecap and a chipped bone, hurt his knee again Wednesday against Minnesota in Provo, Utah, and will undergo further examination. Williams, signed as a free agent during the summer, has been bothered by back spasms.

The 76ers play the Nuggets today at 5 p.m., followed by the Lakers against the Magic at 8. Saturday, winner will play winner and loser will play loser, but the Lakers are in the late game no matter what.

The Lakers are 3-1 in exhibition play after losing, 131-113, to Seattle on Wednesday at San Diego.
