Although Jahlil Okafor is over his illness, Grant will earn the start against the Warriors' small front line. In 30 nods this season, Grant has averaged 9.5 points (on 43 percent shooting), 5.0 rebounds, 1.8 blocks, 1.6 assists, and 0.7 steals in 28 minutes.
Jerami Grant had 21 points (8-13 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 4-7 FT) with eight rebounds, three steals, two assists and a block in the loss to Detroit on Wednesday.
Grant was filling in for the injured Jahlil Okafor and got busy in a big way. He doesn't have much fantasy value while Okafor is in the lineup, but he certainly showed Wednesday that he does have the talent for significant minutes. Grant has an interesting situation because he's showed that he's worthy of minutes at times, but the Sixers need to play the guys that spent high draft picks on. When Robert Covington was out, it was Grant who filled in at small forward. Grant is quite versatile, but the problem is just finding the minutes for him while everyone is healthy.
Jerami Grant supplied 10 points (3-6 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 3-6 FT), five assists, three rebounds, one steal, and one block across 29 minutes in Tuesday's 113-103 win over the Suns.
Grant fought through an illness to make the start in the frontcourt for Jahlil Okafor, who was sitting out with an illness of his own. Okafor has already been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Pistons, so Grant figures to get another turn with the starting five and should earn similar playing time to what he received Tuesday.
Jerami Grant will start on Tuesday night, but is playing through illness, Brian Seltzer of Sixers.com reports
It appears there is a flu bug going around the Philadelphia 76ers locker room, as both Jahlil Okafor (illness) and JaKarr Sampson (illness) have both been ruled out of Tuesday's game due to illness. Grant will attempt to play through the illness, but could see his minutes monitored as a result. In light of the injuries, the 76ers have moved Elton Brand to the active list Tuesday night.
In his second game back from a calf injury, Grant was nearly able to double up his minutes total from the previous contest (15). He benefited from Nerlens Noel's second-half absence due to a headache, but Grant may have earned his court time anyway due to the shot-blocking prowess he demonstrated. He's logged five rejections in three different contests this season and is averaging 1.6 blocks over only 25.6 minutes per game this season. That's a highly impressive rate for a player who checks in at 6-foot-8.
