Christmas will miss the rest of the season with a right Achilles tendon rupture, Derek Bodner of DraftExpress.com reports.
Christmas has spent the 2016-17 campaign with the Delaware 87ers of the D-League, partaking in 31 games, while averaging 14.9 points, 3.5 rebounds, 3.2 assists and 2.0 three-pointers across 31.6 minutes. However, his recent rupture of his Achilles tendon will rule him out for the rest of the season, which means there's little to no chance he's given a look by an NBA team. He'll start the long road to recovery and will likely open the 2017-18 season in the D-League in order to audition for a spot in the big league.
Christmas was waived by the Sixers on Monday, Jeff Goodman of ESPN.com reports.
Christmas has been out of the league since the 2013-14 season, when he spent 62 games split between the Pelicans and Suns. He was with the Sixers throughout training camp recently, but was unable to impress the coaching staff and will likely have to settle for a contract in the D-League or overseas to start the 2016-17 campaign.
A local star from his college days at Temple, Christmas will return to Philadelphia after stops with several different teams both in the NBA and internationally since he went undrafted in 2009. Since he's signed to a one-year deal, it appears the 76ers intend to keep Christmas on the 15-man roster for the start of the regular season. If that's the case, he's unlikely to see enough playing time to attract interest from fantasy owners.
