Phil 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.
Phil 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.
Phil 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.
Phil 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 Philadelphia 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.
Phil Pressey scored 11 points (4-6 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 1-2 FT) and dished out five assists over 13 minutes in Monday's loss to the Bulls.
Pressey has seen his minutes count increase in each of his four games with the Sixers, but with T.J. McConnell generally performing well in the starting lineup, it's not likely that Pressey's role will expand much further. Moreover, once either Kendall Marshall (knee) or Tony Wroten (knee) are deemed ready to return, Pressey may have to be dropped from the roster, as he was added as a 16th man by the Philadelphia 76ers last week due to a league-approved hardship exemption.
