76ers' De'Anthony Melton: Won't return Tuesday
Melton is out for the remainder of Tuesday's game versus the Celtics due to back spasms, Lauren Rosen of the 76ers' official site reports. He will end the contest with zero points (0-2 FG, 0-2 3Pt), one rebound, one assist and one block in nine minutes.
Melton continues to deal with a back issue that caused him to enter Tuesday's contest operating under a minutes restriction. The 25-year-old guard's next chance to suit up is Friday's matchup with Charlotte.... See More ... See Less
76ers' Nicolas Batum: Coming off bench
Batum will come off the bench for Tuesday's game against Boston, Sean Grande of NBC Sports Boston reports.
Kelly Oubre will move into the first unit for the 76ers. This move makes a lot of sense, as the 76ers are expecting to limit Batum to 15-25 minutes because he's coming off an injury.... See More ... See Less
76ers' Kelly Oubre: Returns to starting lineup
Oubre is in the starting five for Tuesday's game versus the Celtics.
Oubre will replace Nicolas Batum in the starting lineup Tuesday. Oubre is averaging 16.4 points, 5.3 rebounds, 1.1 assists and 1.1 steals in 33.7 minutes across his last 10 starting appearances.... See More ... See Less
76ers' Nicolas Batum: Operating on restriction
Batum will log 15-25 minutes of action Tuesday against Boston, Noah Levick of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
Batum's workload has been strictly monitored of late, sitting in the second half of a back-to-back Friday while logging a combined 35 minutes across two appearances after the All-Star break. He continues anchoring a starting role, however, running with the first unit in 15 consecutive appearances.... See More ... See Less
76ers' De'Anthony Melton: Still on minute restriction
Melton will be limited to 15-25 minutes of action in Tuesday's game against Boston, Noah Levick of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.
Melton is joined by Kyle Lowry and Nicolas Batum on the same workload estimation, so Philadelphia's rotation is tough to evaluate at the moment. Melton looked sharp Sunday in his second game back from an extended absence, delivering 16 points in 18 minutes.... See More ... See Less
76ers' KJ Martin: Won't play against Boston
Martin (ankle) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game versus the Celtics, Ky Carlin of USA Today reports.

76ers' KJ Martin: Still questionable for Tuesday
Martin is listed as questionable for Tuesday's game against Boston due to a right ankle impingement.
Martin is not expected to be sidelined for a lengthy stretch, but he has yet to be officially cleared for Tuesday's contest. De'Anthony Melton and Kyle Lowry are on the rise in the rotation, with Philadelphia shifting to smaller units while Martin was unavailable Sunday.... See More ... See Less
76ers' KJ Martin: Off injury report
Martin (ankle) will be available for Tuesday's game against the Celtics.
Martin will return from a one-game absence and could see a limited role off the bench. In his last two appearances with the 76ers, he averaged 6.0 points, 6.5 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 1.0 blocks in 19.0 minutes.... See More ... See Less
76ers' De'Anthony Melton: Leads bench in scoring in loss
Melton registered 16 points (5-12 FG, 4-8 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three rebounds, three assists and two steals in 18 minutes during Sunday's 119-98 loss to Milwaukee.
Melton led all 76ers bench players in scoring while connecting on a team-high mark from three and adding a pair of steals defensively to boost the Philadelphia second unit. Melton has scored 15 or more points in 12 contests this year, making four or more threes in eight appearances.... See More ... See Less
76ers' Tyrese Maxey: Surpasses 20 points as top scorer
Maxey closed Sunday's 119-98 loss to the Bucks with 24 points (8-19 FG, 3-8 3Pt, 5-5 FT), three rebounds, seven assists and three steals in 38 minutes.
Maxey continued to lead the Philadelphia offense while Joel Embiid (knee) remains out for an extended period of time, leading the team in assists and scoring in a losing effort. Maxey has handed out five or more assists in six straight outings while also surpassing the 20-point mark in each of those games.... See More ... See Less
76ers' Kelly Oubre: Flirts with double-double off bench
Oubre posted 12 points (5-15 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 1-2 FT), nine rebounds, two assists and three steals across 29 minutes during Sunday's 119-98 loss to the Bucks.
Oubre returned to the bench with Nicolas Batum getting the starting nod, hauling in a team-high rebound total while ending as one of five players in double figures in scoring in a losing effort. Oubre, who finished one rebound short of a double-double, has recorded eight or more boards in five games, and Sunday was his first such performance while coming off the bench. He has now reached double figures in scoring in 13 of his last 15 games and in three straight contests.... See More ... See Less
76ers' Kelly Oubre: Back to bench
Oubre won't start Sunday's game against the Bucks.
Oubre started Friday's win over Cleveland in place of Nicolas Batum, but the two forwards will swap places again Sunday. Batum is working his way back from a hamstring issue, so it wouldn't be surprising to see Oubre maintain a sizable role off the bench.... See More ... See Less
76ers' Nicolas Batum: Will start Sunday
Batum will start Sunday's game against the Bucks.
Batum returned to action Thursday versus the Knicks after missing nine straight games heading into the All-Star break due to a hamstring injury. He started that contest but played just 18 minutes and was held scoreless. He was deemed available for the second half of Philadelphia's back-to-back set Friday versus Cleveland, but he didn't start and wasn't used off the bench. While Batum is back in the starting lineup Sunday, his role may remain limited.... See More ... See Less
76ers' Joel Embiid: Hopeful for late-season return
Embiid (knee) remains out indefinitely, but coach Nick Nurse said before Sunday's game against the Bucks that the reigning MVP has gotten positive feedback and remains "really hopeful" for a late-season return, Austin Krell of USA Today reports.
Embiid underwent a procedure on his left meniscus at the beginning of February, but there were conflicting reports about his return timeline. Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reported Embiid would be re-evaluated in four weeks, while Shams Charania of The Athletic said the big man was expected to miss at least 6-8 weeks. Both of these reports could be true. Embiid's first evaluation may come after four weeks, but he'll presumably need a few weeks to regain his conditioning before being cleared for game action. In a best-case scenario, managers may get Embiid back for the fantasy playoffs, but even in that situation, he may not be operating at 100 percent.... See More ... See Less
76ers' De'Anthony Melton: Will come off bench again
Melton (back) is available for Sunday's game against the Bucks, but he'll come off the bench, Austin Krell of USA Today reports.
Melton returned to action Friday following an 18-game absence due to a lumbar spine stress response, scoring seven points in 16 minutes off the bench during a win over the Cavaliers. It appears he'll be limited to around 20 minutes again Sunday, but he may eventually reclaim a starting spot over Buddy Hield or Kelly Oubre. Regardless, Melton's fantasy outlook is worse than it was before his injury, as Philadelphia has added Hield, Cameron Payne and Kyle Lowry to its backcourt rotation since Melton played last....
