Korkmaz totaled five points (1-6 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, and three assists in 12 minutes during Saturday's 108-95 Game 1 loss to the Raptors.
Korkmaz has earned exactly 12 minutes in consecutive tilts. With Mike Scott (heel) out, Korkmaz has been among the reserves 76ers coach Brett Brown has called upon to play extended minutes lately. With Scott likely to be listed as questionable in advance of Monday's Game 2, Korkmaz could be in line to earn double-digit minutes for the fourth time in five appearances this postseason.
Korkmaz will start Wednesday's contest against the Bulls, Paul Hudrick of NBCS Philadelphia reports.
Korkmaz, with the 76ers' key players sitting out during the regular-season finale, will make his seventh start of the season. Across his prior nods, he's averaged 12.2 points, 3.7 rebounds, 3.2 assists and 1.0 steal in 28.7 minutes.
Korkmaz (knee) will be available for Tuesday's game against the Heat, Serena Winters of NBC Sports Philly reports.
A torn MCL has shelved Korkmaz since mid-February, but he'll get a chance to return to action Tuesday in the Sixers' penultimate regular season contest. Looking ahead to the postseason, it's unclear if Korkmaz will be a regular in the rotation, but assuming his knee holds up, he could see extended minutes Tuesday and Wednesday with Philly likely to rest several key players.
Korkmaz (knee) is questionable for Tuesday's game against Miami.
Korkmaz has missed nearly two months after undergoing surgery to repair a torn MCL, but his recovery has evidently progressed at a quick pace. If he is cleared to play Tuesday, the Sixers figure to keep a close eye on his minutes in his first game back.
Korkmaz (knee) underwent successful surgery Tuesday and will be re-evaluated in four weeks.
Korkmaz tore his MCL during the Sixers' matchup against the Celtics on Feb. 12. At best, it seems like Korkmaz could be back on the floor in late March, though it also wouldn't be surprising if he was held out until the playoffs. Either way, the loss continues to be a meaningful blow to Philly, who sacrificed depth to acquire both Jimmy Butler and Tobias Harris.
