Top 76ers News

  • 76ers' Kelly Oubre: Will come off the bench Thursday

    Oubre will return to the second unit for Thursday's game against the Knicks, Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

    Oubre takes a hit with the demotion to the second unit, but he should still be able to flirt with minutes in the mid-20s, so perhaps he can maintain some low-end value in deep leagues. Nicolas Batum will replace him in the first unit, but he's not the most attractive streamer on a busy, 12-game night.

  • 76ers' KJ Martin: Retreats to bench

    Martin isn't starting Thursday's game against the Knicks, Stefan Bondy of the New York Post reports.

    Martin started the 76ers' final two games before the All-Star break and averaged 9.5 points and 6.5 rebounds in 27.0 minutes per game. However, he'll retreat to the bench since Nicolas Batum (hamstring) and Tobias Harris (hip) are back in action Thursday.

  • 76ers' De'Anthony Melton: Out Thursday, will play Friday

    Coach Nick Nurse said Thursday that Melton (back) will play in Friday's game versus the Cavaliers, Noah Levick of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

    Melton has already been ruled out Thursday due to a back injury, marking his 18th straight absence. However, the 25-year-old guard will be good to go for Friday's matchup with Cleveland. Melton will likely be on a minutes restriction as he eases his way back into Philadelphia rotation.

  • 76ers' Nicolas Batum: Available for Thursday's game

    Batum (hamstring) is available for Thursday's game against New York, Kyle Neubeck of AllPHLY.com reports.

    Batum hasn't suited up since late January, but he resumed practicing before the All-Star break and has been cleared to return to game action as the 76ers resume play Thursday. Over 13 appearances in January, he averaged 5.5 points, 4.2 rebounds and 2.5 assists in 26.7 minutes per game.

  • 76ers' Darius Bazley: Set to debut Thursday

    The 76ers assigned Bazley to the Delaware Blue Coats of the G League on Wednesday, but he will be recalled and will available for Philadelphia's matchup with the Knicks on Thursday, Austin Krell of USA Today reports.

    Bazley signed a 10-day contract with the 76ers on Monday and is set to make his debut Thursday. During his last NBA stint in 2022-23, Bazley shot 37.7 percent from three across 43 appearances for the Thunder and Suns.

  • 76ers' Robert Covington: Out at least three more weeks

    Covington (knee) is progressing in his rehabilitation program with the goal of ramping up his on-court activities over the next three weeks, Adam Aaronson of PhillyVoice.com reports. He's set to be re-evaluated in 10-to-14 days.

    Covington isn't yet practicing, but if he continues to respond well to his rehab program over the next week and a half or so, he could be cleared to mix into drills with his healthy teammates once he's re-evaluated. Because he hasn't played since Dec. 30 due to a left knee bone bruise, Covington will require some ramp-up time, though he's not expected to hold a major role off the Philadelphia bench once he's ready for game action.

  • 76ers' Kyle Lowry: Good to go for Thursday

    Lowry is off the injury report for Thursday's game against the Knicks.

    Lowry is slated to make his Philadelphia debut Thursday, after he had a chance to get acclimated with his new team coming out of the All-Star break. He'll likely challenge Cameron Payne for the top backup role behind Tyrese Maxey, though Maxey's prior experience playing off the ball should open up plenty of scenarios in which Lowry and Maxey share the floor together.

  • 76ers' De'Anthony Melton: Ruled out for Thursday

    Melton (back) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Knicks.

    Melton hasn't played since Jan. 12 but is nearing a return after logging a full practice Wednesday. Thursday is the front half of a back-to-back set, so Philadelphia may just be giving the veteran guard an extra day off before he suits up for Friday's contest versus Cleveland, though his status for that game likely won't be revealed until after Thursday's matchup.

  • 76ers' Nicolas Batum: Questionable for Thursday

    Batum (hamstring) is questionable for Thursday's game against the Knicks.

    Batum was a full participant in Wednesday's practice, so he appears to be in the final stages of his rehab for a left hamstring strain. The 76ers could provide an update on Batum's status for Thursday's game following morning shootaround, but because the matchup with the Knicks represents the front end of a back-to-back set, it wouldn't be surprising if the veteran forward sat out against New York and returned to action Friday versus the Cavaliers.

  • 76ers' Tobias Harris: Off injury report

    Harris (hip) has been removed from the injury report for Thursday's matchup with the Knicks.

    Harris missed Philadelphia's final two games before the All-Star break with a left hip impingement, but he was able to get in a full practice Wednesday and should be slated for his usual workload Thursday. With Harris back in action, KJ Martin will likely return to the second unit, and Kelly Oubre's usage will likely dip.

  • 76ers' Robert Covington: Still three weeks away

    Covington (knee) is still about three weeks away from a return, Noah Levick of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

    Covington has been sidelined since Dec. 30 and has yet to return to practice for the 76ers. With this updated return timetable, Covington will likely be re-evaluated in mid-March.

  • 76ers' De'Anthony Melton: Goes through practice

    Melton (back) was able to practice in full Wednesday, Lauren Rosen of the 76ers' official site reports.

    Melton has been sidelined since Jan. 12, but this is a good indication he could be ready for Thursday's game against the Knicks. In 33 games this season, Melton has averaged 11.8 points, 4.0 rebounds, 3.2 assists and 1.6 steals.

  • 76ers' Nicolas Batum: Likely to play Thursday

    Batum (hamstring) practiced in full Wednesday, Lauren Rosen of the 76ers' official site reports.

    Batum last played for the 76ers on Jan. 29, but he was able to practice before the All-Star break. Depending on how he responds in the morning, Batum is expected to return for Thursday's game against the Knicks, with coach Nick Nurse saying the veteran is "pretty likely" to play, per Noah Levick of NBC Sports Philadelphia.

  • 76ers' Tobias Harris: Returns to practice

    Harris (hip) was able to practice in full Wednesday, Lauren Rosen of the 76ers' official site reports.

    Harris missed the final two games before the All-Star break but is on track to return Thursday versus the Knicks. In five February appearances, Harris has averaged 18.0 points, 6.2 rebounds, 5.2 assists and 1.2 steals on 50.0 percent shooting.

  • 76ers' Kyle Lowry: On track to play Thursday

    Lowry (not injury related) went through a full practice Wednesday, Lauren Rosen of the 76ers' official site reports.

    Lowry was held out of last Wednesday's game versus the Heat before the All-Star break as he ramped up his conditioning, but all signs point to him making his 76ers debut Thursday against the Knicks. The veteran will likely take over the backup point guard duties from Cameron Payne.
