The 76ers expect Jerryd Bayless (wrist surgery) to be ready for training camp, according to beat writer Tom Moore.
Bayless will resume scrimmaging this summer and should be ready for opening night, which is good news for Philly since they owe him a guaranteed $17.6 million through 2019. T.J. McCollum played well last season, however, and Ben Simmons will be assuming PG duties, so it's hard to expect anything from Bayless in fantasy leagues. May 31 - 9:33 PM

Jerryd Bayless (left wrist) has been cleared to begin increasing his oncourt work.

Bayless missed all but three games this season after undergoing surgery on his left wrist in December, but it sounds like he isn't in danger of missing any time in 2017-18. Bayless is owed $17.6 million over the next two seasons, but he will have to earn every single minute next season with Ben Simmons expected to run the offense and T.J. McConnell proving that he's a capable role player in the NBA. Bayless is expected to be cleared for contact in May.
Apr 13 - 9:13 AM

Jerryd Bayless (left wrist) had surgery on Thursday and is expected to miss the rest of the season.

His wrist will be immobilized for 12 weeks due to a torn tendon. Bayless was likely going to be the starter for the 76ers, but his season will finish with just one start all year. With him out of the lineup, Sergio Rodriguez should see around 30 minutes per game as the starter and has solidified his value for owners who are OK with sub-par field goal percentage. T.J. McConnell will also stay in the rotation. Ben Simmons is making progress and is going to play point guard, so he could be in the mix down the line.

Jerryd Bayless (wrist) will not play against the Raptors on Wednesday.

This will be the ninth straight game Bayless has missed due to the wrist injury. The status of Sergio Rodriguez (gastroenteritis) was in doubt, but it now appears he is expected to play Wednesday vs. Toronto, and will likely get the start. S-Rod has put up solid fantasy numbers as the starter, but his illness makes him a little trustworthy than usual. T.J. McConnell may see an uptick in minutes.

Jerryd Bayless (wrist) will not play against the Pistons on Sunday.

This will be the eighth straight game Bayless has missed. Sergio Rodriguez will start once again. S-Rod has played well in place of Bayless this season. Rodriguez is averaging 9.1 points, 6.9 assists and 3.1 rebounds in 28.0 minutes in the 22 games he has started this season.

Jerryd Bayless (wrist) will not play against the Pelicans on Thursday.

He didn't even travel with the team. The 76ers were listing Bayless as questionable last week for his wrist soreness, but they're ruling him out early for every game so far this week. Sergio Rodriguez will continue to start and get the lion's share of the PG minutes, so he's a hold in standard leagues until Bayless gets back on the court. T.J. McConnell will get the backup minutes.

Jerryd Bayless (wrist) and Jahlil Okafor (stomach bug) are not expected to travel with the team to New Orleans for Thursday's game against the Pelicans.

Both of these guys will spend Tuesday's game on the sidelines, and if Bayless can't give it a go Thursday, that'll be his sixth straight game on the sidelines and Okafor's third. Bayless is in danger of requiring season-ending surgery to correct his wrist injury, and he doesn't offer enough upside to hold onto in most scenarios. Sergio Rodriguez has been playing well as a starter, so he's worth a look as an assists specialist in standard leagues. Joel Embiid (rest) will be back in action on Thursday, so Okafor's absence won't mean much.

Jerryd Bayless (wrist) will not play on Tuesday vs. the Grizzlies.

This will be the fifth straight game Bayless has missed due to the wrist issue. Sergio Rodriguez will once again start for the Sixers, with T.J. McConnel backing him up. Rodriguez has played well as a starter. Over his five games, he is averaging 12.6 points, 7.2 assists, 3.4 rebounds, 2.4 3-pointers and 1.8 assists. With only nine available players Tuesday night, Rodriguez and the rest of the healthy Sixers will see plenty of playing time, making S-Rod an intriguing DFS and streaming option.

Jerryd Bayless (wrist) will not play on Monday vs. the Wizards.

Bayless hopes to avoid season-ending surgery, as he wants to see how his wrist responds to his recent platelet-rich plasma injection. With Bayless out, Sergio Rodriguez will draw another start and will be a nice source of assists, while T.J. McConnell will handle the backup duties. For now, Bayless is day-to-day and is only a hold in very deep leagues.

Jerryd Bayless (wrist soreness) said that he wants to avoid season-ending surgery and that he will try to keep playing.

"I'm going to try to play," Bayless said. "I want to play. I want to get to the point where I can play and not worry about it." He recently received a platelet-rich plasma injection in his wrist, so it will be interesting to see how his wrist responds in the coming weeks. He's currently listed as questionable for Monday's game vs. the Nuggets, but he's just a deep-league hold until he proves he can play through the issue.
Mon, Dec 5, 2016 09:44:00 AM

Jerryd Bayless (wrist soreness) will not play Saturday against the Celtics.

After missing the first 13 games, Bayless may have came back too soon last month and said he experienced soreness throughout his lone start of the season. He's had PRP treatment and is only day-to-day for now. Sergio Rodriguez will hold down the fort until Bayless is pain-free, so he'll have value until then. Bayless is a tough guy to stash until he's officially back in the lineup.

Jerryd Bayless (left wrist soreness) will not play Friday vs. Orlando and is questionable for Saturday vs. Boston.

Bayless had platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatment on his wrist earlier this week and is not yet ready for game action. Sergio Rodriguez will likely start in his place on Friday, with T.J. McConnell as the first point guard off the bench. Rodriguez has averaged 8.2 points, 7.0 assists and 3.1 rebounds in the 17 games he has started this season.
Fri, Dec 2, 2016 11:28:00 AM

Updating a previous item, Jerryd Bayless (wrist) is questionable to face the Magic on Friday.

Bayless was previously reported as out, but that was off the game notes. He had PRP treatment on his wrist recently and had been battling soreness basically since his return to action last week. If he is limited or out, Sergio Rodriguez would get a nice bump in playing time with T.J. McConnell backing him up. Fantasy owners may want to take a wait-and-see approach on Bayless unless the wire is dry.

Jerryd Bayless (wrist) will miss Friday's game against the Magic.

Bayless had platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatment on his wrist and will need some time to recover. We'll consider him day-to-day moving forward, but Sergio Rodriguez and T.J. McConnell will continue to see more minutes on Friday. Bayless can be left on waivers in standard fantasy leagues at this point.
Thu, Dec 1, 2016 11:52:00 AM

Jerryd Bayless (wrist) said he had platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatment on his wrist.

He'll need some time to recover from the treatment, so it would appear Bayless is going to miss some games -- we'll call him day-to-day for now. While he's out, Sergio Rodriguez will continue to start with T.J. McConnell backing him up. Bayless looked like he was going to get big minutes, but it's tough to stash him with some many wrist problems.
