76ers vs. Nets: Tyrese Maxey’s Injury Diagnosis Revealed


Tyrese Maxey helped lead the Philadelphia 76ers to an upset win over the Dallas Mavericks on the road, but the young guard almost got hurt in the third quarter.  

Maxey slipped and hit his head on a defender's knee when he tried to drive into the paint. Maxey lay down for a while before he was helped off the ground and back to the dressing room.  

Maxey, the experienced guard, was checked out and told he could go back to work as soon as he felt ready. He came back into the game soon after leaving to help the Sixers finish the game and get their second straight win.  

Maxey appeared healthy following Sunday's game. 76ers head coach Nick Nurse said the medical staff will closely examine Maxey over the next two days, but he thought the All-Star guard would be fine.  

Maxey joined the injury report hours before the Sixers' Tuesday night away game against the Brooklyn Nets. Apparently, the star scorer was sent home to Philly.  

The Sixers' injury report showed Maxey as out with a concussion. Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reported that Nick Nurse called Tuesday's game against the Nets delayed and moderate.  

"They didn't really see the symptoms right away," the head coach said to the reporters while providing information. In addition, when he wakes up the following day, they are already there.  

The Sixers won't have much time to rest to start the week because they play the Memphis Grizzlies at home 24 hours after playing the Nets. It's not clear when Maxey will be able to act again.  

Maxey can't play against Memphis on Wednesday. The next time he could come back is on Friday, when the Sixers host the New Orleans Pelicans in South Philadelphia.
