Landry (back) is listed as out for Tuesday's game against the Raptors. With Landry sitting out his third straight game and Joel Embiid (foot), Jahlil Okafor (knee), and Richaun Holmes (Achilles) joining him in street clothes, coach Brett Brown will have to lean a bit more heavily on Elton Brand and Robert Covington to assume minutes in the frontcourt behind starters Jerami Grant and Nerlens Noel. The Sixers will play their final game of the season Wednesday against the Bulls, and Landry's chances of playing in that contest don't appear promising.
Landry (back) will not play in Sunday's game against the Bucks, C.F. Gardner of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. Landry will miss his second consecutive game after due to lower back soreness. In his absence on Friday, Nerlens Noel got the start and could start once again. Looking ahead, Landry's next chance to return will be on Tuesday against the Raptors.
Landry has been ruled out of Friday's tilt with the Knicks due to soreness in his back, Jessica Camerato of CSNPhilly.com reports. The veteran big man will get the night off after he turned in one of his best performances of the season on Tuesday night. He led the team with 22 points (9-10 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 2-3 FT) alongside nine rebounds and two steals during just 26 minutes. Nerlens Noel will grab the start in his absence on Friday. His next chance to take the court will come on Saturday when the 76ers take on the Bucks.
Landry scored a game-high 22 points (9-10 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 2-3 FT) with nine rebounds and two steals during just 26 minutes in Tuesday's 107-93 win against the Pelicans. It's been a while since the days when Landry was considered one of the better bench players in the league, but he's giving us a nice case of deja vu lately. Over the past five games, Landry is averaging 17.4 points and 6.8 rebounds in just 24 minutes per game. The 76ers aren't playing for much, but Landry has some motivation at the age of 32 to show he deserves another contract.
Landry scored 22 points (9-15 FG, 4-4 FT) and added eight rebounds, three assists, and one steal across 25 minutes during the 76ers' 117-105 loss to the Warriors on Sunday. Landry played pretty well while earning the start against the Warriors in place of an injured Nerlens Noel (knee). Noel's MRI on Saturday indicated a contusion, which will likely leave him questionable for Tuesday's bout with the Hornets. If Noel sits out, Landry would likely draw another start, and he is averaging 16 points (57.1 FG, 100.0 FT), 6.4 rebounds, and one assist to 0.6 turnovers in 22 minutes over the last five games.
