Korkmaz had 19 points (6-14 FG, 6-13 3Pt, 1-2 FT), two rebounds, two assists, two blocks and a steal in Monday's win over the Pacers.
The Sixers moved Korkmaz back to the bench after he started Saturday's game, and he responded with one of his best games of the season. In just 23 minutes, Korkmaz drained a season-high six threes, while adding out-of-the-ordinary contributions on the defensive end. Entering Monday, the wing had not blocked a shot since opening night back on Dec. 23.
Korkmaz will come off the bench Monday against the Pacers, Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
The 23-year-old received the start Saturday in place of Tobias Harris (knee), but Mike Scott will start Monday with Harris still sidelined. Korkmaz could still see increased minutes off the bench for the Sixers.
Korkmaz will start Saturday's game against the Cavaliers, Ky Carlin of USA Today reports.
With Tobias Harris (knee) out, Korkmaz will get the nod. In Korkmaz's previous two starts this season, he averaged 16.0 points, 6.0 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 1.0 steals in 33.0 minutes.
Korkmaz will start Tuesday's game against the Raptors, Kyle Neubeck of PhillyVoice.com reports.
Coach Doc Rivers indicated Sunday the 23-year-old had fallen out of the rotation, but the young guard will end up receiving the start with Seth Curry (ankle) unavailable. Korkmaz, Isaiah Joe and Shake Milton figure to benefit from Curry's absence.
Philadelphia head coach Doc Rivers hinted Sunday after the 76ers' 110-103 loss to the Raptors that Korkmaz has lost his spot in the rotation to Isaiah Joe, Marc Narducci of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. "It's just a look. I mean everyone earns their minutes," Rivers said of Joe. "It is always a fair competition. Right now, we're going with Isaiah."
Joe played 12 minutes off the bench in the loss, while Korkmaz was limited to only two minutes, his fewest in any game since he returned from a left adductor strain Jan. 20. Rivers' plan to phase out Korkmaz doesn't come as a major surprise, given that the long-distance specialist is shooting 37 percent from the field and 30.8 percent from three-point range on the season. With Korkmaz' contract set to expire after the season, the 76ers could look to move him before the trade deadline, if Joe and second-year player Matisse Thybulle are both able to lock down second-unit roles on the wing.
Korkmaz was held scoreless (0-5 FG, 0-2 3Pt) in Monday's loss to the Jazz.
Korkmaz played 21 minutes off the bench but never settled into a rhythm and finished with his third straight game with fewer than 10 points. The wing can safely be ignored in most fantasy formats.
Korkmaz will come off the bench Saturday versus the Nets.
The 23-year-old started Thursday but will return to the bench Saturday with Seth Curry (illness) and Ben Simmons (calf) retaking the court. Korkmaz is averaging 7.5 points and 2.1 rebounds in 11 games off the bench this season.
Korkmaz had 13 points (5-14 FG, 1-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five rebounds, two assists and two steals across 38 minutes in Thursday's loss against the Trail Blazers.
Korkmaz paced the Sixers in minutes and did a good job filling out the stat sheet. He also scored in double digits just for the third time this season, and his value going forward will depend on how long he's able to remain as a starter. He has a good chance to start Saturday against the Nets if Seth Curry (illness) or Ben Simmons (calf) remain sidelined.
Korkmaz will start in Thursday's game against Portland, Justin Grasso of SI.com reports.
Kormaz will receive his first start of the season as a result of Ben Simmons (calf) being sidelined. The 23-year-old has only scored in double figures twice so far this season, but he'll have a shot to get loose due to the start.
Korkmaz went for 17 points (6-12 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three rebounds and two assists in 23 minutes off the bench in Sunday's 119-110 win over the Pacers.
Despite coming off the bench, Korkmaz drained a team-high three treys and and was second among the team's guards in scoring. For the first time this season, Korkmaz has played in 20 minutes in back-to-back games. The 76ers have a few days off before traveling to Charlotte to take on the Hornets on Feb. 3.
Korkmaz finished with eight points (3-6 FG, 2-4 3Pt), three boards, and two steals in 28 minutes of a 118-94 win against Minnesota on Friday.
Korkmaz saw his minutes jump in the win, but he did match his point total from the previous game. He's still managing to play a role despite the return of Seth Curry (conditioning) to the rotation, and his points per game hasn't dropped in the ensuing week. He'll face the Pacers on Sunday.
Korkmaz (thigh) tallied seven points (2-5 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-3 FT), one rebound and one steal in 20 minutes Wednesday in the 76ers' 117-109 win over the Celtics.
Korkmaz was cleared to play ahead of Sunday's 106-104 loss to Memphis, but he went unused off the bench after missing the previous 10 games before that with an adductor strain. After Korkmaz got in some practice time to begin the week, he re-entered head coach Doc Rivers' rotation, working as the fourth wing ahead of Isaiah Joe. However, one of Korkmaz or Matisse Thybulle will likely drop out of the rotation if Seth Curry (conditioning) is cleared to play in the Sixers' next game Friday versus Boston.
Korkmaz (thigh) is available to play in Sunday's game agains the Thunder, Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Korkmaz will be available to make his return after being out since Dec. 27 due to a thigh injury. The 23-year-old will likely immediately be back in the rotation, especially considering that Seth Curry (COVID-19) is currently sidelined. However, Tyrese Maxey and Shake Milton have played well in Korkmaz' absence.
Korkmaz (thigh) won't return to action Saturday versus the Grizzlies, Noah Levick of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
Korkmaz has reportedly been progressing in his rehab and was set to be re-evaluated ahead of the pair of weekend games. The 76ers haven't provided a formal update on Korkmaz's status so expect him to also remain sidelined for Sundays game in Oklahoma City.
Korkmaz (thigh) is progressing in his rehab work and will be reevaluated ahead of the back-to-back set this weekend, which begins Saturday at Memphis, Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
The 23-year-old suffered the adductor strain in late December and was expected to be reevaluated after about two weeks, so things appear to have progressed as scheduled to this point. Korkmaz has taken part in individual drills, but it's unclear if he's participated in any contact work.
Korkmaz will be sidelined for at least two weeks after suffering a left adductor strain during Sunday's game against the Cavaliers, Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
The 23-year-old will be reevaluated in about two weeks, and he'll likely require additional time once cleared before being game ready. Tyrese Maxey and Terrance Ferguson could have increased roles off the bench while Korkmaz is sidelined.
Korkmaz scored 14 points (4-7 FG, 4-6 3PT, 2-2 FT) to go along with four rebounds, two assists and one steal in 19 minutes in Friday's preseason win over the Pacers.
No one on the Sixers topped 26 minutes and 17 different players took the floor in their preseason finale. Even so, Korkmaz played 19 minutes for the second consecutive game, allowing him to get hot from behind the arc. The additions of Seth Curry and Danny Green leave Korkmaz set for a reserve role in the regular season, though he proved capable of scoring in bunches last campaign.
Korkmaz produced 21 points (5-10 FG, 5-9 3Pt, 6-6 FT), five rebounds, four assists and two steals in 29 minutes during Wednesday's 125-121 loss to the Raptors.
Korkmaz had by far his best showing since the season restarted, as he was scalding hot from beyond the arc and made all of his free-throw attempts. Furthermore, Korkmaz contributed across multiple categories while earning the second-most minutes on the team. Alec Burks (foot) and Glenn Robinson (hip) didn't suit up for this one, and it remains to be seen what type of role the inconsistent Korkmaz will be able to maintain come playoff time. Nevertheless, he's clearly capable of producing when he earns decent minutes.
Korkmaz had seven points (1-1 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 4-5 FT), one rebound and one steal in 13 minutes during Sunday's 124-121 loss to the Trail Blazers.
Korkmaz played the ninth-most minutes on the team and has earned less than 20 minutes in four of his last five appearances. As one of Philadelphia's better three-point shooters, it wouldn't be that surprising if Korkmaz continues earning double-digit minute totals. Still, given how many players at his position are seeing more playing time, it's also possible his defensive struggles will result in even fewer minutes going forward.
Korkmaz totaled 17 points (5-7 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 4-5 FT), four rebounds and two assists in 21 minutes during Wednesday's 124-106 win over the Pistons.
Korkmaz found a rhythm offensively in this one, and he has scored in double figures in 10 of 16 appearances since the beginning of February. The midseason acquisitions (Alec Burks and Glenn Robinson) haven't stopped Korkmaz from earning 20-plus minutes a consistent basis, as he has done so in 14 of these last 16 tilts.
