McConnell scored two points (1-4 FG) and gathered four assists and one steal over 20 minutes during Friday's preseason game against the Heat.
McConnell averaged a career high 26.3 minutes for Philadelphia during the 2016-17 season. However, Ben Simmons, Markelle Fultz, and Jerryd Bayless will likely share the majority of the point guard role this season, so the 25-year-old will likely play end-of-rotation minutes during the regular season.
McConnell contributed 10 points (3-7 FG, 4-4 FT), 10 assists, three steals and two rebounds across 34 minutes during Saturday's 90-82 loss to the Bucks.
With reserve point guard Sergio Rodriguez (hamstring) out for the season as of March 28, McConnell has been given extended run, averaging 9.5 points, 8.5 assists, 3.7 rebounds and 2.0 steals across 33.7 minutes per game over the past six contests. While McConnell isn't a great scorer, he provides quality assist and steal numbers, making him a viable option in most fantasy formats.
McConnell (ankle) was cleared to return to the court during the fourth quarter of Thursday's game against the Bulls, Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
McConnell departing in the third quarter after twisting his left ankle, but with preliminary X-rays coming back negative, team trainers signed off on his return. The 76ers already were lacking in depth at point guard with Sergio Rodriguez (hamstring) unavailable, so McConnell's return is a positive development for the injury-plagued 76ers, who would have been down to Nik Stauskas as their lone ball handler had McConnell been forced out of action.
McConnell twisted his ankle during Thursday's tilt against the Bulls and had the X-rays come back negative, so he will be available to return to the game, Bob Cooney of the Daily News reports.
McConnell was helped off the floor after twisting his ankle during Thursday's game and was subsequently given an X-ray and examined by the 76ers' medical staff. While they'll likely not want to rush him back in, McConnell remains the only ball-handling guard other than Nik Stauskas available for Thursday's game. McConnell should be considered questionable for Saturday's game against the Bucks, even if he does return to Thursday's action.
McConnell posted 10 points (4-6 FG, 2-2 FT) with eight assists, five rebounds and three steals over 26 minutes in Friday's 117-107 win against the Bulls.
While McConnell has been a bit erratic in the scoring department he is a steady source of assists and steals. In fact, McConnell has at least one steals in 22 straight games dating back to Feb. 4. Despite up-and-down offense he remains a must-start across most fantasy formats because of his help across multiple categories.
