Stauskas contributed 15 points (4-7 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 4-4 FT), five rebounds, two assists and one block across 31 minutes in a 105-95 win over the Nets on Sunday.
Gerald Henderson hasn't faced any limitations in his two games since returning from a hip injury, but Stauskas has been able to maintain his spot in the starting lineup at shooting guard. It's likely that will remain the case for the foreseeable future, as Stauskas certainly bolstered his chances of sticking with the top unit Sunday by turning in his best scoring performance since Nov. 19. Since Stauskas' scoring is often dependent on outside shooting, there will likely be a lot of volatility toward his outputs, but he's at least become more of a threat from distance after struggling in that department in his first two NBA seasons. Stauskas is holding down a 38.8 percent mark from three-point range on the season, a six-point jump from 2015-16.
Stauskas will make his fourth straight start at shooting guard Friday against the Celtics, Jessica Camerato of CSN Philadelphia reports.
Though Gerald Henderson (hip) has been cleared to return from a three-game absence and isn't facing any minute restrictions, coach Brett Brown has elected to bring him off the bench for the first time this season. That will allow Stauskas to retain his spot in the starting five, though the third-year player will likely need to improve upon the numbers he's provided in his previous three starts in order to stick more permanently with the top unit. In those three games without Henderson, Stauskas has averaged only 9.0 points, 3.3 assists, 2.7 rebounds, 1.7 three-pointers and 1.3 steals in 31.7 minutes per game while shooting an abysmal 32 percent from the field.
Stauskas started at shooting guard and provided nine points (3-9 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five rebounds, three assists and three steals across 34 minutes in a 100-83 loss to the Jazz on Thursday.
Stauskas entered the starting five in place of Gerald Henderson (hip), who has already been ruled out of Friday's game. That should afford Stauskas another turn with the top unit, and he could take on even more minutes Friday, as he'll also be in line to serve as the top backup to T.J. McConnell at point guard with Sergio Rodriguez (ankle) sitting out. Despite the likely huge workload that awaits him, Stauskas' upside remains rather limited, since he probably won't be an especially high-usage option while sharing the floor with Joel Embiid, Jahlil Okafor and Robert Covington.
Stauskas will start at shooting guard for Thursday's game against the Jazz, Jessica Camerato of CSN Philadelphia reports.
Gerald Henderson is dealing with a hip injury and has been ruled out for the next two games, so Stauskas will get the first shot at replacing him in the starting lineup. Look for Stauskas to push for playing time towards that 30-minute mark, although Hollis Thompson could cut into the added workload as well. Over his last 10 games, Stauskas has averaged 7.6 points, 2.1 rebounds and 2.4 assists across 26.4 minutes.
Stauskas (knee) played 19 minutes in a 102-100 loss to the Kings on Monday, providing four points (2-4 FG, 0-1 3Pt), one rebound and one steal.
Stauskas had missed the 76ers' previous game Friday against the Suns while contending with the bruised knee, but reclaimed his spot in the rotation Monday as the top backup to starting shooting guard Gerald Henderson. While he didn't have a notable outing Monday, Stauskas could be in line for added minutes Thursday against the Jazz if Henderson, who exited in the fourth quarter Monday with left hip pain, is forced to sit out.
