Hurt Hammy Shuts Down Sixers Brand

Sixers power forward -- all around best-known player, former All Star and $80-million man -- Elton Brand is on the shelf with a hamstring injury.

An MRI confirmed the injury, according to a Sixers statement.

Brand didn't travel with his Sixers teammates to Detroit for Friday's game and is currently listed as day-to-day.

76ers faithful better hope that this injury isn't more serious than just a minor hamstring tweak. The Sixers postman spent almost the entire 2007-08 season on the mend with a ruptured Achilles’ tendon.
