GALLOWAY TWP, N.J. - The 76ers will finally get an opportunity to see what happens when they deploy Nerlens Noel and Jahlil Okafor side-by-side. The two big men will become the franchise's most important tandem on Tuesday morning at Stockton University. That's when the Sixers begin the first of eight training camp practices that conclude on Saturday. The pairing of the two 6-foot-11 post players was among the biggest topics Monday when the team met with the media at Stockton Seaview Hotel & Golf Club.

ATLANTA - Phillies interim manager Pete Mackanin benched centerfielder Odubel Herrera in the fourth inning of Sunday's loss for throwing his bat down in frustration and not running hard to first base after flying out to left field. "Boys play Little League. Men play Major League Baseball. We will not pout. We will not feel sorry for ourselves. If you want to, then you don't belong here. He had to learn a lesson," Mackanin explained after the game. "To me, he's been pouting for a few days, and I just wanted to make sure that he gets the message.

Aaron Nola has never had Tommy John surgery. The Phillies righthander has not faced a significant injury. But an article about the elbow surgery's namesake reminded interim general manager Scott Proefrock about Nola. Proefrock said he spent a few days trying to figure out the best plan of action for the remainder of Nola's rookie season. Ruben Amaro Jr. said before his ouster that Nola would be shelved after reaching 185 innings, which would cause the Phillies to end Nola's season early.

Shayne Gostisbehere has gained 15 pounds since last year, shed some body fat thanks to summer workouts, and has put his knee surgery in the rearview mirror. The knee, he said, is back to normal. "It feels good," the speedy 5-foot-11, 186-pound defenseman said Tuesday after the Flyers' second day of rookie camp in Voorhees. "I have no limits out there. I feel great and hopefully I don't look too bad. " Relieved that he is able to resume his promising career, the player they call "Ghost" talked about how his sister, Felicia, 25, whose figure skating career ended because of hip injuries, helped him get through his surgery and grueling rehab.

Cesar Hernandez will undergo season-ending surgery Wednesday to repair ligament damage in his left thumb. The Phillies second baseman is expected to be healthy in time for spring training in February. The need for surgery stems from Hernandez's awkward fall Sunday after a collision with Anthony Rizzo in the seventh inning of the win against the Chicago Cubs. It resulted in a dislocation of Hernandez's thumb, and a visit to the doctor Monday revealed the ligament damage. Estimated recovery time is about three months, which would put Hernandez's potential participation in winter ball in doubt.

Zach Ertz practiced on Wednesday for the first time in nearly a month, and there's a possibility that the Eagles' third-year tight end could play in the season opener on Monday against the Atlanta Falcons. Ertz, who had surgery on Aug. 14 for a core muscle injury, was cleared to return to practice after he ran routes in front of the medical staff on Friday. The Eagles had a relatively light practice on Wednesday, and Ertz is curious to see how his body will respond on Thursday. He expects the decision on whether he can play against the Falcons to stretch to "Monday, right before the game.

SAM HINKIE graduated summa cum laude from the University of Oklahoma. He was the president of the student business association and chairman of the dean's roundtable. He's a numbers guy at heart, earning an MBA from Stanford University. But yesterday, when the 76ers general manager and president of basketball operations spoke with the media during a conference call, he sounded as if he had done quite a bit of medical studying. Perhaps one gets quite knowledgeable about a subject when it's happening for the second year in a row. Hinkie spoke about Joel Embiid's bone-graft procedure, completed by a team of five carefully selected doctors, which took place Tuesday in New York at the Hospital for Special Surgery.
