Dillon Gee went five innings in the loss to the Padres Saturday giving up four runs and five hits with eight strike outs and no walks.
Gee surprisingly got roughed up, in in his second start since returning from the DL (strained right lat), by a Padres team that won for just the third time in their past 11 games. On the positive side, Gee has now struck out 12 batters in 12 innings with just one walk so hopefully his struggles Saturday, where he allowed two home runs, had more to do with his two month layoff then anything else. Things do not get any easier for Gee as his next start on Friday is in Milwaukee against one of the biggest first-half surprise teams in the Brewers.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Michael Floyd (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Week 12.
Floyd missed Week 11 due to a hamstring injury. He was a limited participant in practice all week, and is questionable for Week 12. Head Coach Bruce Arians is optimistic about his status, but Floyd may just be a decoy come Sunday if he's still limited by his hamstring. There are better plays for Week 12, unless Floyd is declared a full go. Analysis: Ben Diamond
Nik Stauskas (knee) said he is available for Friday's game.
Stauskas was supposed to miss the 76ers next three games after suffering a left knee contusion on Monday, and hoped to return at some point next week. Unexpectedly, Stauskas will be available on Friday to play. This doesn't mean he will play, but is significantly improves the chance that he is able to play on Sunday. Analysis: Ben Diamond
DeMarcus Cousins was upgraded to questionable Friday.
DeMarcus Cousins sat out the Kings game in Milwaukee on Wednesday but has been upgraded to questionable for Friday night. There is no guarantee he will play so monitor reports right up until game time in regards to Cousins. He has averaged 27.9 points, 11.2 rebounds and 1.5 blocks in 10 games for the Kings this year.
