Spencer Hawes Injury Update: Return Expected Wednesday Against Indiana Pacers

Philadelphia 76ers center Spencer Hawes is expected to return to the court Wednesday against the Indiana Pacers after missing the prior 17 games with an Achilles' injury.

Hawes participated fully in Tuesday's practice and said his body held up well.

"I felt good," Hawes told reporters after practice. "I've been waiting for a while to get back out there with my teammates. This is huge for me."

Coach Doug Collins has previously said that Hawes' minutes will be limited in his return, and that he won't play in back-to-back games. But even in a limited fashion, the center should help.

"It looks like he picked up right where he left off," Collins told reporters after practice. "He's ball-friendly, and for a big guy, he can really help space the floor for us. I want to get him right back in the mix."
