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. Dec 7 - 5:46 PM

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.
Dec 6 - 10:54 AM

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.
Dec 5 - 11:41 AM

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.
Dec 5 - 9:44 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.
Dec 3 - 5:59 PM

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.
Dec 2 - 11:28 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.
Dec 1 - 2:00 PM

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.
Dec 1 - 11:52 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.
Nov 30 - 6:45 PM

Jerryd Bayless (wrist) will not play Wednesday vs. the Kings.

Wednesday will mark Bayless' third straight game on the sidelines, and after aggravating his wrist injury just three games into his previous return, the 76ers will likely be extra cautious this second time around. For now, we'll consider him questionable for Friday's game against the Magic. Sergio Rodriguez will continue to start in his absence.
Nov 30 - 11:46 AM

Jerryd Bayless (wrist) is not listed on the injury report for Wednesday's game against Sacramento.

This could just be a clerical error, so we're still going to consider him questionable for Wednesday's game until we have something more definitive. Given that Bayless aggravated his injury after just three games, he'll likely be eased back into things this second time around, meaning he won't be in the standard league equation for a while. His eventual return will hurt Sergio Rodriguez the most.
Nov 29 - 4:16 PM

Jerryd Bayless (wrist) has been ruled out for Monday's game against the Raptors.

Bayless didn't even travel with the team, but the 76ers will be returning to Philly for a four-game home stand on Wednesday, so him not traveling doesn't necessarily mean much. Sergio Rodriguez will be running with the first unit for however long Bayless is out, and he's worth owning as an assists specialist.
Nov 28 - 6:05 PM

Jerryd Bayless (left wrist) is being listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Raptors.

He's traveling with the team, which is a good sign, but he could be headed for a game-time call as team's typically skip shootaround on the second day of a back-to-back set. If he's back, Sergio Rodriguez would likely return to the bench, but when both those guys are healthy, neither one is worth owning in standard leagues.
Nov 27 - 3:58 PM

Jerryd Bayless (wrist) will not play Sunday vs. the Cavaliers.

He aggravated his wrist against the Bulls on Friday and is dealing with some soreness, and it's not a surprise to see him ruled out after he was downgraded from probable to questionable. With Bayless out, Sergio Rodriguez could move into the starting lineup and is worth a look for any owner needing assists.
