Pressey was waived by the Sixers on Friday, Marc J. Spears of Yahoo reports. Pressey has played in just 14 games so far this season, averaging 3.9 points, 1.6 rebounds and 3.3 assists over 12 minutes per game. With Tony Wroten about to return from the knee injury that forced him to miss the start of the season, Pressey became expendable and will now head to the open market. Look for him to spend time in the NBA D-League if a team doesn't claim him off waivers.
Pressey (illness) returned to action after missing one game and posted nine points (4-6 FG, 1-1 3Pt), five assists, three rebounds, and one steal in 19 minutes Wednesday against the Pacers. Pressey had a pretty solid line Wednesday, but isn't likely going to keep that production up, as he's locked on the bench. He's playing just 12 minutes a game this season, and it will take multiple injuries for him to see enough playing time to produce well.
Pressey (illness) ended up sitting out Monday's game against the Mavericks. Pressey was suffering from food poisoning for most of Monday, so the Sixers decided to hold him out for precautionary purposes. Isaiah Canaan served as the top backup at point guard behind T.J. McConnell for the shorthanded squad, but Pressey should be able to reclaim those duties if he's feeling healthy in time for Wednesday's tilt with the Pacers.
Pressey (illness) is unlikely to play Monday, Tom Moore of Calkins Media reports. Pressey is dealing with a bout of food poisoning, and barring a quick recovery over the next couple of hours, he'll sit out, meaning Isaiah Canaan will serve as the primary backup to T.J. McConnell.
Pressey is questionable for Monday's game against the Mavericks due to a stomach virus, Dei Lynam of CSN Philadelphia reports. Since being added to the 76ers' roster earlier this month as a 16th man, Pressey has taken the reins of the backup point guard job, seeing double-digit minutes in each of the last five games. The Sixers are still without the services of Kendall Marshall (knee) and Tony Wroten (knee), so if Pressey is unable to play Monday, it could result in starting point guard T.J. McConnell approaching 40 minutes. Beyond Pressey and the other injured players, Isaiah Canaan is the only player with point-guard experience on the roster, though coach Brett Brown has shown a greater willingness to use Canaan at the two-guard spot of late.
