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.
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, 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 (ankle) will play during Thursday's Game 3 against the Raptors, Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
A left ankle sprain put Monroe's status into question, but the big man will ultimately be able to suit up. Across 16 total minutes in this series, he's racked up 13 points, six rebounds, two blocks and one assist.
Monroe (ankle) practiced Wednesday and said afterward that he "expects" to participate in Thursday's Game 3 against the Raptors, Derek Bodner of The Athletic reports.
A sprained ankle cut Monroe's night short during Game 2, but it doesn't appear it's serious enough to keep him out of Philly's first home game of the series. 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.
Monroe has been ruled out for the remainder of Game 2 against the Raptors due to a left ankle sprain, Dave McMenamin of ESPN.com reports.
The Sixers initially announced that Monroe was available to return after tweaking his ankle in the third quarter, but it appears his injury was more significant than originally thought. He scored 10 points (4-7 FG, 2-2 FT) and registered five rebounds along with an assist and a block over 12 minutes off the bench.
Monroe suffered a sprained left ankle during Game 2 against the Raptors on Monday but is available to return, Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Monroe limped to the locker room with the team trainer in the third quarter, but after further evaluation, it was decided that he could return if needed.
Monroe was ejected during Tuesday's Game 5 against Brooklyn, Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Monroe was involved in some garbage time pushing and shoving. It would be surprising he was suspended for Game 1 against the Raptors.
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 76ers decide to play it safe and sit Embiid once again.
Monroe will start at center in Thursday's Game 3 against Brooklyn, Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Monroe is starting while Joel Embiid (knee) is held out for the game. 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.
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.
Monroe plans to sign with the 76ers on Thursday, Jordan Schultz of ESPN reports.
The Celtics confirmed Wednesday that they would let Monroe walk following the end of his 10-day deal, and the Sixers will now swoop in and add the veteran big man as the playoffs approach. Monroe began the season in Toronto, but he continues to bounce around, as the Sixers will be his fifth team in the last two seasons alone. In order to accommodate the 28-year-old, Philadelphia will waive Justin Patton, who was acquired earlier in the season as part of the Jimmy Butler deal.
Monroe's 10-day contract with the Celtics expired Wednesday, and the team will not retain him, Mark Murphy of the Boston Herald reports.
Monroe appeared in only two games for Boston, which initially signed him when it appeared Al Horford could be in danger of missing more time with a nagging knee issue. Now, with Horford, Aron Baynes and Daniel Theis all healthy as the playoffs approach, Boston has little need for a fourth center.
Monroe was signed to a 10-day contract by the Celtics ahead of Saturday's game with Charlotte, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
The veteran center is a good bet to see significant minutes against the Hornets as the Celtics will be without Al Horford (knee) and Aron Baynes (ankle). Although it's unclear exactly how much run Monroe could get, there's a good possibility he sees upwards of 20-minutes as the only other centers on the Celtics' active roster who are available are Daniel Theis and Robert Williams who are averaging 13.9 minutes and 8.3 minutes per game respectively. Monroe appeared in 38 games with the Raptors earlier this season, tallying 4.8 points and 4.1 rebounds in 11.1 minutes per contest.
Monroe (not injury related) was let go by the Nets on Thursday.
Monroe was traded to the Nets just prior to the deadline, but he failed to sniff the court with his new team. He'll head to the open market after spending 38 games with the Raptors this season. Monroe averaged 4.8 points and 4.1 rebounds in 11.1 minutes per contest over that stretch.
Monroe, along with a second-round pick, has been traded to the Nets, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports. He is expected to be waived eventually, per Michael Scotto of The Athletic.
With Marc Gasol now in the fold for Toronto, there was going to be few opportunities for Monroe to take the floor. Instead, it seems the Raptors may be interested in using his roster spot to pursue a player from the buyout market. The Nets will take on Monroe's deal to eventually cut him loose, netting a second-round pick in the process.
Monroe had zero points (0-3 FG), two rebounds, and two assists in 11 minutes during Saturday's 119-90 win over the Grizzlies.
Monroe has gone scoreless twice across the last eight contests, and four times over the last 12. Even with Jonas Valanciunas (thumb) sidelined through the beginning of February, Monroe hasn't been able to establish himself as anything more than a decent low-end option for deep leagues. The 28-year-old center is posting career-worst numbers in almost every statistical category.
Monroe tallied just six points, eight rebounds, and one assist in 22 minutes during Saturday's 126-101 loss to the 76ers.
Monroe moved back into the starting lineup but did very little with his time on the floor. There is no word on exactly when Serge Ibaka (knee) will return to the lineup but as soon as that happens, Monroe will lose any upside he has at the moment.
Monroe will start Saturday against the 76ers, Rich Hofmann of The Athletic reports.
Coach Nick Nurse chose to experiment with a small-ball lineup containing Pascal Siakam at center during Friday's game against the Cavaliers. He will turn back to something more traditional Saturday.
Monroe will come off the bench Friday against the Cavaliers, Blake Murphy of The Athletic reports.
Coach Nick Nurse, in the face of an extensive injury report, will experiment with Pascal Siakam at center during Friday's tilt against the struggling Cavaliers. Monroe may still get significant run, however, as he's averaging 16.0 minutes over the past three games.
Monroe tallied 13 points (6-9 FG, 1-2 FT), eight rebounds, and one steal in 22 minutes during Wednesday's 99-96 victory over the Pacers.
Monroe moved into the starting lineup with both Jonas Valanciunas (thumb) and Serge Ibaka (knee) on the sidelines. He finished with 13 points and eight rebounds, doing most of his damage in the first half. Ibaka's injury doesn't sound too serious but if he is forced to miss additional time, Monroe could be worth streaming in some formats.
