Report: Sixers' Jerryd Bayless likely out a month with wrist injury
The guard will not have surgery
Bayless suffered the injury before the beginning of the preseason, so he has yet to play a game for the Sixers. He was signed in the summer and expected to start at point guard.
Heading into training camp, the Sixers expected No. 1 pick Ben Simmons to start at the 4 but play point forward. In that scenario, Bayless' skill set would have fit perfectly -- he doesn't need the ball in his hands, and he can space the floor. Now, Simmons is out for months with a foot injury and Bayless isn't about to play anytime soon, either. Hey, at least Philadelphia fans have learned to be patient.
