Landry was waived Wednesday by the 76ers, Shams Charania of The Vertical reports.
The move doesn't come as a surprise given the Sixers depth in the frontcourt and their focus on keeping a young nucleus moving forward. Brooklyn, Phoenix, Minnesota, Denver, Utah and Cleveland are the teams eligible to claim the power forward off waivers. He could potentially serve as a veteran frontcourt piece, but given his health and lack of production recently, Landry's days as a productive rotation player may be coming to a close.
Landry (back) is listed as out for Tuesday's game against the Raptors.
With Landry sitting out his third straight game and Joel Embiid (foot), Jahlil Okafor (knee), and Richaun Holmes (Achilles) joining him in street clothes, coach Brett Brown will have to lean a bit more heavily on Elton Brand and Robert Covington to assume minutes in the frontcourt behind starters Jerami Grant and Nerlens Noel. The Sixers will play their final game of the season Wednesday against the Bulls, and Landry's chances of playing in that contest don't appear promising.
Landry (back) will not play in Sunday's game against the Bucks, C.F. Gardner of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Landry will miss his second consecutive game after due to lower back soreness. In his absence on Friday, Nerlens Noel got the start and could start once again. Looking ahead, Landry's next chance to return will be on Tuesday against the Raptors.
Landry has been ruled out of Friday's tilt with the Knicks due to soreness in his back, Jessica Camerato of CSNPhilly.com reports.
The veteran big man will get the night off after he turned in one of his best performances of the season on Tuesday night. He led the team with 22 points (9-10 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 2-3 FT) alongside nine rebounds and two steals during just 26 minutes. Nerlens Noel will grab the start in his absence on Friday. His next chance to take the court will come on Saturday when the 76ers take on the Bucks.
Landry scored a game-high 22 points (9-10 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 2-3 FT) with nine rebounds and two steals during just 26 minutes in Tuesday's 107-93 win against the Pelicans.
It's been a while since the days when Landry was considered one of the better bench players in the league, but he's giving us a nice case of deja vu lately. Over the past five games, Landry is averaging 17.4 points and 6.8 rebounds in just 24 minutes per game. The 76ers aren't playing for much, but Landry has some motivation at the age of 32 to show he deserves another contract.
Landry scored 22 points (9-15 FG, 4-4 FT) and added eight rebounds, three assists, and one steal across 25 minutes during the 76ers' 117-105 loss to the Warriors on Sunday.
Landry played pretty well while earning the start against the Warriors in place of an injured Nerlens Noel (knee). Noel's MRI on Saturday indicated a contusion, which will likely leave him questionable for Tuesday's bout with the Hornets. If Noel sits out, Landry would likely draw another start, and he is averaging 16 points (57.1 FG, 100.0 FT), 6.4 rebounds, and one assist to 0.6 turnovers in 22 minutes over the last five games.
Landry tallied 12 points (5-6 FG, 2-2 FT), two rebounds and an assist over 16 minutes in Saturday's 108-105 loss to the Trail Blazers.
Making a second straight start for the ailing Nerlens Noel (knee), Landry was solid while posting his third double-digit scoring effort in the last four games. He's often a solid source of scoring and rebounds off the bench as well, and was averaging 10.9 points and 5.1 rebounds across 18.8 minutes in March coming in to Saturday's contest.
Landry registered 26 points (10-18 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 6-6 FT) and eight rebounds in 25 minutes during the 76ers' 120-105 loss to the Celtics on Sunday.
Landry has scored in double figures during five of the last eight games, and the 18 minutes per matchup he is seeing in March is more time than he received in any prior month this season. However, he also went scoreless in one of those last eight contests, and Landry is generally best reserved for use in deeper leagues.
Landry scored 18 points (7-13 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 3-4 FT) while adding six rebounds and a steal in 25 minutes during Saturday's loss to the Pistons.
With Jerami Grant and Robert Covington both dealing with concussions following Friday's game, there could be plenty of minutes available for Landry in the short term. Given the Sixers' lack of other scoring options, he could be worth considering for a spot on your DFS roster as long as Landry keeps drawing starts.
Landry will draw the start Saturday against the Pistons, Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
The 76ers are currently stretched very thin due to injuries meaning Landry should continue seeing a heavier workload than normal. He is coming off an outing in which he posted 16 points, eight rebounds, and one assist in 25 minutes of action. He is an interesting option in DFS formats.
Landry scored 18 points (8-16 FG, 2-6 FT) while adding seven rebounds and a steal in 26 minutes during Sunday's loss to the Heat.
Making just his fourth start of the season for the injury-depleted Sixers, Landry demonstrated that he can still put up decent numbers when he gets a chance. Either or both of Nerlens Noel (knee) and Jahlil Okafor (shin) could return for Wednesday's game against the visiting Rockets, likely sending Landry back to the bench, but if he does draw another start he could be worth considering for your DFS roster.
Landry will draw the start at center for Sunday's game against the Heat, Jessica Camerato of CSN Philly reports.
With Nerlens Noel (knee) and Jahlil Okafor (shin) sitting out with their respective injuries, the Sixers will move Landry into the starting lineup at center for Sunday's game against the Heat. Landry is averaging just 11 minutes per game this season, but should see increased playing time with so many injuries to the Sixers' frontcourt.
Landry tallied 15 points (6-8 FG, 3-5 FT) and two rebounds across 18 minutes in Monday's 116-108 loss to the Wizards.
Landry took advantage of Jahlil Okafor's absence due to a bruised right shin to enter the rotation and post his second-best scoring performance in a Sixers uniform. Don't expect Landry to see nearly as much court time or shot attempts in the team's next game Wednesday versus the Hornets, as Okafor is expected to return for that contest and gobble up most of the minutes that went to Landry on Monday.
Landry has held down a limited role off the bench since returning from a wrist injury in December.
The 32-year-old Landry doesn't necessarily fit with the 76ers' youth movement, so it's no surprise that he's been relegated to the end of the bench on most nights. Landry has been a DNP-CD in seven of the last 10 games, and that pattern figures to hold up as the second half of the season gets underway.
Landry (coach's decision) didn't get off the bench in Wednesday's 96-87 win over the Magic.
Landry had played only seven and four minutes, respectively, in the Sixers' previous two games, so the fact that he didn't play Wednesday isn't anything out of the blue. The veteran forward looks to be behind Jahlil Okafor, Nerlens Noel, Richaun Holmes, and Jerami Grant in the team's frontcourt rotation.
Landry drew a surprise start Wednesday in place of Nerlens Noel who was experiencing a case of mild nausea, Molly French of CSN Philadelphia reports.
This was certainly a surprise, as every media source confirmed Noel as the starter. However, he left the court literally seconds before tip-off to head to the locker room. Landry drew the start in his place, but Noel did return to the game after a couple minutes.
Landry collected 11 points (4-7 FG, 3-6 FT), four rebounds, an assist and a pair of steals over 16 minutes in Saturday's 130-99 loss to the Clippers.
After sitting due to a coach's decision over the Sixers' last two contests, the nine-year veteran returned with an efficient performance over limited time. Landry's effort was the third time in the four games since his season debut that he's posted double-digit scoring, with the sole exception being an eight-minute apperance against the Jazz last Monday. While Philadelphia has a crowded frontcourt that includes Nerlens Noel, Jerami Grant and Richaun Holmes, Landry's productivity and veteran savvy figure to continue helping him carve out some modest playing time.
Landry played only eight minutes while starting at power forward in Monday's 95-91 loss to the Jazz. He finished with no points (0-3 FG) and no rebounds.
Landry was set to face a 20-minute restriction heading into Monday's contest, but he didn't even see half of that amount of playing time after struggling to make an impact early in the game. It's expected that Landry will head back to a reserve role Wednesday against the Kings, as Jahlil Okafor (knee) is expected to rejoin the starting five after sitting out the previous two contests.
Landry will draw the start Monday in Utah, Keith Pompey of the Philly Daily News reports.
Landry made his season debut off the bench Dec. 23, and played 13 minutes. He then played 23 minutes off the bench his next outing. The 76ers must be pleased with his progress, as he is already in their starting lineup. Expect him to still be on somewhat of a minute restriction, but this is a good sign for his current status with the team.
Landry will be held to a 20-minute restriction in Monday's game against the Jazz, Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Landry is playing in just his third game of the season since his return from wrist surgery last June, so coach Brett Brown remains cognizant of not overworking the veteran big man in his first few games back. The 32-year-old actually exceeded his restriction in Saturday's win over the Suns by playing 23 minutes, so the 20-minute limit seems to be pretty soft. Landry has looked good in his first two games with double-digit points in both outings, and could see his role grow as he gets healthier.
