Ennis' minutes limit has been increased from the 12 minutes he saw during Monday's Game 2 against the Nets, Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Coming off a quad injury, Ennis took just two shots across 12 minutes during a 145-123 Game 2 victory. The Sixers have little wing depth, so his availability is important. Coach Brett Brown declined to say exactly how many minutes Ennis has been cleared for. Either way, his fantasy relevance is relatively minimal.
Ennis managed six points (2-2 FG, 2-2 FT), three rebounds, and one assist in 12 minutes during Monday's 145-123 Game 2 win over the Nets. Ennis returned to the lineup following a five-game absence with a quad injury and saw limited action as expected. The team is desperately lacking depth along the wing, and while Ennis is nothing special, he's capable of defending multiple positions and providing the occasional bucket. As such, he's likely to continue earning double-digit minutes off the bench going forward.
Ennis is expected to be limited to around 12 minutes in Monday's Game 2 against the Nets, Serena Winters of NBC Sports Philly reports. Ennis should provide a defensive boost on the wing, but after missing the last five contests it looks as though he'll only be available on a limited basis. As such, he's best avoided in DFS contests Monday night.
Ennis (quad) has been cleared to play in Monday's Game 2 against the Nets, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports. Ennis was listed as doubtful on the initial injury report, but he'll be back in the mix for Philly after missing the previous five contests with a bruised quad. Ennis likely won't be a major factor on the offensive end, but he could earn some minutes off the bench to help slow down the Nets as the Sixers look to avoid falling to an 0-2 deficit. In his last 10 healthy games in the regular season, Ennis averaged 17.9 minutes and put up 6.4 points, 3.2 rebounds and 0.8 made threes per contest.
Ennis (quad) is considered doubtful for Game 2 against the Nets on Monday. Ennis has missed the last five matchups due to a quad bruise, and his return for the second game of the postseason appears unlikely at this point. Assuming he's officially ruled out closer to tipoff, Zhaire Smith and Jonathon Simmons would continue to see more playing time.
