Ennis was held scoreless (0-5 FG, 0-2 3Pt) and added two rebounds in 17 minutes off the bench Sunday in the 76ers' 143-120 win over the Lakers.
Ennis has been included in the rotation for both of his first two games with Philadelphia since being acquired from the Rockets on Thursday, playing under 20 minutes on both occasions. The 76ers had the game well in hand by the fourth quarter and were able to use their bench guys more heavily, so Ennis is likely to see his playing time take a hit in contests that are more competitive throughout.

After being shipped to Philadelphia on Thursday, Ennis will be ready to make his team debut. He averaged 7.4 points, 2.9 rebounds and 1.0 steal through 40 games with Houston, and he figures to slot in as a role player with the Sixers.

Ennis was traded to Philadelphia on Thursday and should serve as a key piece off the bench for the 76ers for the rest of the season. With Jonathan Simmons, who was traded from the Magic on Thursday, still unavailable to play, Philadelphia could be in need of Ennis' services given their questionable wing depth following the multiple transactions over the last two days. Expect Ennis' status to be confirmed once tip-off draws closer.

While Ennis was expected to play a prominent role in Houston this season following the departure of Trevor Ariza via free agency, it never worked out for the swingman, and he will now be shipped to what should be a much better situation in Philadelphia. The Tobias Harris trade that went down Wednesday depleted the 76ers of some quality depth on the wing, so Ennis should be in line for a consistent role off the bench behind both Harris and Jimmy Butler.
