Philadelphia 76ers guard Jerryd Bayless suffered a sprain of the posterolateral corner in his left knee during practice on Sunday, September 30. He is out and will begin treatment immediately.
The clinical evolution of rehabilitation will determine his return to competition, and he will be re-evaluated in approximately three to four weeks.
Starters for this upcoming season in the Sixers backcourt will definitely be Ben Simmons and probably JJ Redick. Bayless is in the mix for backup minutes, but it’s crowded in the guard spot on that bench.
The big question in regard to Sixers guard this season is if Markelle Fultz will emerge.
