Update: Brand (shoulder) will not be activated in time for Saturday's game against the Knicks, the Philiadelphia Daily News reports.

Analysis: The team hopes he will be ready to play Wednesday against the Rockets.

that would be exactly 6 weeks, the amount they said he needed for full recovery.

Arent you a little worried that he might mess up the chemistry once he returns? They've been playing so much better without him as of late.

As long as they don't toss the ball to Elton in the post for him to take jumpshots all game, I think they will be fine. Although im worried a little cause he's not going to get up and down like Thad would in the starting line up.

we were too focused on him being Elton Brand. We know his credentials so we really tried to get him the ball instead of letting him just blend in. Elton blending in will be at least 15 and 10 but with better percentages. I just think our team as a whole needs to just think of him as just another guy out there, and we will be fine. I know it's tough because he's not just another guy but forcing him the ball and standing around will not do it. He's an unselfish player so he will adapt.

I thought they did a good job tonight vs. the Knicks of not force feeding Brand when he was in. There were even some times when he was open after the pick and roll and they opted to not toss it to him. Good to see.

yeah it was. Like i said we need to just think of him as another guy out there. Play the same way that we do with Reggie in the game. But Brand just fitting in will be very good in itself.
