    Greg Monroe: Signs deal overseas

    Greg Monroe has signed a contract with Bayern Munich of the German Basketball Bundesliga, Emiliano Carchia of Sportnado reports.It's been a hard and fast fall for Monroe, who is still just 29 years old. As recently as 2015-16, he started 67 games for the Bucks, averaging 15.3 points, 8.8 rebounds and 2.3 assists in 29.3 minutes. But with the modern NBA focused on spacing and big man defense, Monroe has fallen by the wayside as an offensive-minded center who lives in the post. An NBA comeback is possible, but seems unlikely unless Monroe develops a passable three-point shot.

    76ers' Greg Monroe: Plays five minutes in Game 5 loss

    Greg Monroe managed two points (1-3 FG, 0-1 3Pt) and one rebound in five minutes during Tuesday's 125-89 Game 5 loss to the Raptors.Monroe had his three-game streak of double-digit minutes snapped in this one, as he was promptly subbed out after air-balling an open corner three in the second quarter. It is entirely possible that Monroe will continue to hold down the fort as Joel Embiid's primary backup at center. Still, Philadelphia 76ers coach Brett Brown might instead decide to roll with smaller lineups that can better match up with Toronto's backup big man (Serge Ibaka). As a result, it shouldn't catch anyone off guard if Brown turns to Mike Scott or Jonah Bolden rather than Monroe in Thursday's Game 6.

Monroe is officially listed as probable heading into Game 3 but an official update on his status may be made following Thursday's morning shootaround.

    76ers' Greg Monroe: Grabs 13 boards in Game 3 victory

    Greg Monroe managed nine points (4-13 FG, 1-2 FT), 13 rebounds, one assist, one steal, and one block in 25 minutes during Thursday's 131-115 Game 3 win over the Nets.Monroe drew the start in place of Joel Embiid (knee) and finished one point shy of a double-double while contributing across multiple categories. Monroe wasn't efficient offensively, missing several easy shots that he usually makes. Nevertheless, he was fairly effective as the spot starter at center and could be in line to draw another start in Saturday's Game 4 if the Philadelphia 76ers decide to play it safe and sit Embiid once again.

After sitting out Game 1 and playing just nine minutes in Game 2, Monroe is likely in for a significant minutes increase Thursday before returning to his bench role when Embiid is again able to play.

    76ers' Greg Monroe: Leads charge from bench

    Greg Monroe scored a team-high 18 (6-8 FG, 6-6 FT) while adding five rebounds and two assists in 19 minutes off the bench in Tuesday's 122-99 loss to the Heat.With the Sixers already locked into the No. 3 seed in the Eastern Conference, the team rested Joel Embiid and J.J. Redick completely and capped the minutes for their other key starters, leaving plenty of touches for depth players like Monroe. The veteran big man might see a similar workload in Philly's regular-season finale, but don't expect him to make any kind of impact in the playoffs.
