PHILADELPHIA (AP) -Elton Brand was listed on the Philadelphia 76ers active roster and expected to play Saturday night against the New York Knicks after missing 16 games with a shoulder injury.
Sixers coach Tony DiLeo said Brand would not start.
Brand dislocated his right shoulder on Dec. 17 against the Milwaukee Bucks.
The Sixers were 9-7 without the 6-foot-8 Brand and even won seven consecutive games before losing 95-93 to the Dallas Mavericks last Monday.
Philadelphia was 11-14 before Brand was sidelined.
The power forward signed a five-year, $80 million contract in the offseason with Philadelphia. He is averaging 15.9 points and 9.8 rebounds in 23 games.
