Jerryd Bayless Has Surgery, Likely Done for the Season
Philadelphia Sixers guard Jerryd Bayless has missed all but three of the team’s games with a wrist injury. On Thursday, Bayless had surgery on that left wrist and is expected to miss the rest of the season.
He hasn't appeared in a game since November 25 against Chicago, but it was the November 23rd game where the damage was done.
The Sixers issued a short press release stating the following:
Bayless played the next game, playing 26 minutes, scoring 11 points, four rebounds and two assists.
In three games this season, Bayless averaged 11 points, four rebounds and four assists in 24 minutes per game.
In Bayless’s absence, the Sixers will likely stick with Sergio Rodriguez as the starter with T.J. McConnell coming off-the-bench.
