Patrick Beverley, the Philadelphia 76ers’ guard, is nearing a return as he’s not listed on the NBA injury report for tonight’s game against the Indiana Pacers.

This comes after his exit from Friday’s contest with the Detroit Pistons due to neck discomfort, as reported by Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer.

On Saturday’s practice session, Beverley engaged in a scrimmage, and his continued involvement in a scrimmage the following day is a promising sign. It’s highly probable that he’ll grace the court this evening.

As for forward Kelly Oubre Jr., who had an unfortunate encounter with a vehicle in Center City on Saturday night, he is sidelined due to an illness.

The Philadelphia 76ers, with a remarkable 7-1 record this season, including seven consecutive victories, will welcome the Indiana Pacers, who hold a 6-3 record and are on a three-game winning streak away on the road.

This showdown will take place on Sunday night at the Walls Fargo Center in Philadelphia.
