Scott (illness) will play Friday against the Kings, Mark Zumoff of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports. As expected, despite Scott dealing with an upper respiratory issue, he'll take the floor Friday. Over the past four games, he's averaging 6.8 points, 5.3 rebounds and 1.3 assists in 26.3 minutes.
Scott (illness) is probable for Friday's game against Sacramento. Scott, along with Ben Simmons (illness), skipped Thursday's practice session. While it's good news that the Sixers have listed him as probable for Friday night's clash, that could change Friday morning depending on how he's feeling.
Scott did not participate in Thursday's practice due to an illness, Serena Winters of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports. Scott has become a key member of the 76ers rotation this month, but an upper respiratory infection has his status for Friday's game in doubt. The 76ers are waiting until Friday to provide any updates on Scott, so expect the forward to be evaluated again in the morning.
Scott totaled a season-high 22 points (7-15 FG, 6-9 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds and a steal over 32 minutes in the 76er's loss to the Warriors on Saturday. Although Jonah Bolden got the start at center, Scott was the first man off the bench in Saturday's loss, playing 10 more minutes than Bolden and handily outproducing him. He achieved his lofty point total with the help of six threes, shooting 67.0 percent from beyond the arc. Scott's recent increase in production has come at the expense of Joel Embiid who has been out with a knee injury, and Scott makes a quality daily option any time Embiid misses time.
Scott supplied 15 points (5-8 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 2-4 FT), four rebounds and two assists across 29 minutes during Saturday's loss to Portland. Scott tied his second-best scoring output of the season, while seeing a season-high 29 minutes Saturday. While Scott received a bit more run that usual due to Joel Embiid (knee) not playing, he showcased his floor-spacing skill and could be in-line for more run moving forward, especially if he continues to shoot the ball well.
