Philadelphia's De'Anthony Melton (injury recovery) ruled out for Saturday's Game 1 matchup versus Knicks

Philadelphia 76ers guard De'Anthony Melton (injury recovery) will not play in Saturday's Game 1 contest against the New York Knicks.

What It Means:

According to head coach Nick Nurse, while Melton is not available for his second straight game with a back injury, Philadelphia not rule out their guard for Round 1's series. Expect Kyle Lowry to see an increased role while Melton is out.

In 531 minutes with Philly's current rotation, Lowry is averaging 0.74 FanDuel points per minute and a 12.4% usage rate.
