When the team opens the season in late October, 15 players will make up the roster, and there very well could be someone out there who isn't on the team right now who will make up a part of that 15. But just in case a trade doesn't happen before then, let's take a look at how the roster might work out. Guards (5)

Charlotte Bobcats guard Gerald Henderson, who starred at Episcopal Academy, sat out Saturday night against the Washington Wizards after aggravating a back injury in Friday night's loss to the 76ers. Henderson missed Wednesday night's game against the Wizards, but returned to play against the 76ers. However, coach Paul Silas said he believed Henderson might have injured his back during a fall Friday night. Matt Carroll got the start in place of Henderson. Silas said guard D.J. Augustin and forwards D.J. White and Corey Maggette likely won't play during the team's four-game road trip because of injuries, but there's a chance guard Reggie Williams will return to practice Monday.

How do you surprise and honor a basketball player so ballyhooed she is already an all-American and considered one of the nation's best high school players? Coatesville's Amber White found out when representatives of SchoolSports magazine informed her she was their choice for the cover of their current Greater Philadelphia edition. The all-American point guard got the call from the New York-based publication in late November. "At first, I thought they just meant I was going to be in the magazine," she said.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. - The Charlotte Hornets' Al Jefferson, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, and Cody Zeller were out. Jason Richardson, Isaiah Canaan, and Thomas Robinson didn't play for the 76ers. And Nerlens Noel, the Sixers' best player, suffered a game-ending cut to his right lower eyelid in the second quarter. Saturday night's game at the Time Warner Cable Arena had a "who's who" of sidelined players. Perhaps to the dismay of the Sixers, Gerald Henderson remained in the game. The former Episcopal Academy standout scored the go-ahead layup with 6 seconds left in the Hornets' 92-91 victory.

Dominating from start to finish, the Bobcats prevailed, 123-93, at the Wells Fargo Center. The Sixers (16-59) have lost two straight and 28 of 29 games. They are riding their 12th losing streak of the season. There was little that the Sixers did right, and there was next to nothing that they stopped the Bobcats (37-38) from doing. "There was spirit that was knocked out of us, early," Sixers coach Brett Brown said.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Spencer Hawes summed it up best. "It's tough. He's the head of our snake," Hawes said of Jrue Holiday following the 76ers' 88-83 loss to the Charlotte Bobcats on Wednesday. "He's what propels us with not only scoring but making plays as well. When he is having a tough night it has a ripple effect. " Holiday was 2 for 24 and scored just five points against the Bobcats. And with three games left on this road trip, against Atlanta on Friday, Miami on Saturday, and Brooklyn on Tuesday, the 30-44 Sixers are looking at returning home as a lottery team.
