Back from injury, Mike Scott looks to make an impact for the Sixers on both ends of the floor


The reserve power forward wanted to help his teammates but was hampered due to swelling in his right knee.


“Probably the longest I ever spent away dealing with an injury,” Scott said following Monday’s shootaround before the Sixers played against the Utah Jazz at Vivint Center.


Scott finished with two rebounds and one steal while not attempting a shot in 11 minutes, 27 seconds against the Suns.


His presence should also give a boost to the Sixers’ second unit, which has struggled without Shake Milton over the past two games.


He wants the reserves to match the starters’ energy on nights they open games with great starts.


The Sixers will return home after their four-game West Coast trip and face the Houston Rockets at the Wells Fargo Center on Wednesday.
