76ers' Jerryd Bayless: Doesn't scrimmage Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Bayless (wrist) was held out of Friday's scrimmage, Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Bayless has been bothered by left wrist soreness over the last couple of days, but it's not expected to jeopardize his availability for the start of the regular season. However, Bayless could be held out of the preseason opener Tuesday against the Celtics, potentially paving the way for T.J. McConnell to get some run with the top unit.

76ers' Gerald Henderson: Set to start at shooting guard in preseason opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Henderson will start at shooting guard during the 76ers' preseason opener Tuesday against the Celtics, Jeff McMenamin of the 76ers Report reports.

Based on how the 76ers had arranged their units during a scrimmage earlier in the week, there was some belief that rookie Dario Saric had the inside track on a starting job over Henderson, who would cede the shooting guard spot to Robert Covington in that setup. With Friday's news that Ben Simmons suffered a fractured foot that would likely sideline him for the start of the season, it's possible that both Henderson and Saric are now in line to open the campaign as members of the top unit, but coach Brett Brown has yet to confirm as much. Whether he's used as the starting shooting guard or as the Sixers' first guard off the bench, Henderson is expected to see his opportunities increase after averaging only 8.7 points in 19.9 minutes per game while playing behind Damian Lillard and C.J. McCollum with the Trail Blazers in 2015-16.

76ers' Joel Embiid: Will start at center in preseason opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Embiid will start at center during the 76ers' preseason opener Tuesday against the Celtics, Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Embiid was held out of the 76ers' scrimmage Thursday, but it was strictly for precautionary purposes as the organization looks not to overextend him in his first training camp with the club. With Embiid reporting no setbacks thus far with his right foot, which has required two procedures since he was drafted No. 3 overall in 2014, he'll be in line to make his professional debut Tuesday. Despite his lack of experience at the NBA level, the gifted Embiid seems to be viewed as the top center on the roster ahead of fellow former lottery picks Jahlil Okafor and Nerlens Noel. However, Embiid will face significant restrictions on his minutes and games played throughout the season and may sacrifice additional court time to Okafor and Noel as well, so he's far from a safe fantasy investment, particularly in shallower formats.

76ers' Ben Simmons: Dealing with fracture in foot
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Simmons is dealing with a fracture in the fifth metatarsal bone of his right foot, although an estimate for his time off the court has yet to be released by the Sixers, Bob Cooney of the Daily News reports.

This is horrendous news for the rookie stalwart as it seems as though he'll be forced to miss a significant portion of the upcoming season. The exact severity of his injury is still under wraps, but it would be surprising if Simmons was allowed back on the court anytime soon. He originally suffered a rolled ankle during a scrimmage Friday and precautionary X-ray and MRI results revealed the worst. In his absence, Dario Saric, Nerlens Noel, and Jerami Grant could all see unexpectedly more time at power forward.

76ers' Ben Simmons: Rolls ankle in practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simmons rolled his ankle in Friday's practice and will have precautionary x-rays, Jessica Camerato of CSN Philly reports.

Head coach Brett Brown does not seem too concerned with the No. 1 overall pick's health, but it's something to monitor as the injury was severe enough where x-rays needed to be taken. The 76ers will likely update Simmons' status tomorrow following the x-rays and take precautionary measures with him as the preseason approaches.
