Meek Mill expected to be court side for Game 5.
Meek Mill is a free man, just in time for tonight's Sixers game.
According to Yahoo Sports' Shams Charania, Meek plans to attend tonight's Game 5 as the Sixers host the Miami Heat at the Wells Fargo Center. In fact, 76ers co-owner Michael Rubin is reportedly picking Meek up from jail and he says it's "more likely than not" that Meek will be court side for tonight's game.
Furthermore, if Meek and Rubin get to the arena in time, the Philly-native will have the honor of ringing the ceremonial pre-game bell, according to the New York Times' Daniel Victor. Joel Embiid is said to be "going crazy" after learning of Meek's release.
After taking Games 3 & 4 in Miami, the Sixers return home tonight with a chance to close out the series and advance to the second round where they'll face the winner of the Boston Celtics vs Milwaukee Bucks series. Game 5, airing on TNT, is scheduled to tip off at 8:00pm ET tonight.
