76ers vs. Grizzlies: Tyrese Maxey’s Playing Status on Wednesday


As the Philadelphia 76ers prepared to play the Brooklyn Nets on Tuesday night, they decided that their star guard Tyrese Maxey would not be available for the game.  

What appears to be the case is that they will do the same thing for the game against the Memphis Grizzlies on Wednesday night.  

Due to the limited amount of time available for rest and recuperation, the Sixers will once again be required to compete against the Grizzlies without their starting guard.  

As the Sixers played the Dallas Mavericks over the weekend, Maxey stumbled and crashed into a defender. Maxey's head hit his opponent's leg as he fell.  

Maxey lay on the floor in pain. He left the court and returned to the locker room for evaluation. Maxey was cleared to play soon after his examination.  

The great player for the Sixers made his comeback to the court just prior to the beginning of the fourth quarter. Within the final 39 minutes of the Mavericks' victory over the Mavericks on Sunday, he finished with 24 points.  

Nick Nurse, the head coach of the 76ers, thought that Maxey would be fine going forward after the game. At first, that was still the case before the Nets game because Maxey wasn't listed as hurt at first.  

Maxey was put out and sent home from Brooklyn hours before the game. Sixers head coach Nick Nurse called Maxey's symptoms moderate and delayed before Tuesday's game. As predicted, the guard is in NBA concussion protocol.  

Maxey's return date is unknown. Friday, March 8, when the Sixers play the New Orleans Pelicans, is his next chance to play after missing the second straight game on Wednesday.
