JERAMI GRANT (SF)
  • Jul 21 2016, 13:59 PM

    Update: Grant concluded his two game Utah Summer League stint with 10.0 points, 4.0 rebounds and 1.0 assists per game.

    Analysis: Grant emerged as one of Philadelphia's most dependable offensive assets last season. His shortened summer league appearance likely indicates that Philadelphia knows he has little to prove at that level. Grant is one year removed from averaging 9.7 points and 4.7 rebounds per contest with the 76ers. Last season, Philadelphia possessed 10 players who each netted eight or more points per game. When you factor Ben Simmons into that equation it generates the notion that something has to give. Grant has proven he can succeed at the professional level, but with a clustered rotation only time will tell if his production takes a backseat.

    Update: Grant won't play in any more Summer League games this year, and instead will train with the United States Select team, Keith Pompey of Philly.com reports.

    Analysis: Grant was simply using the Summer League to get ready for his time with the Unite States Select team. This is a valuable experience as Grant will be playing against some of the best players in the country. In the two appearances Grant made in Summer League play this year, he averaged 10 points and 4 rebounds. His departure will make room for James Webb III to start and get more minutes in Las Vegas.

    Update: Grant finished with 21 points (6-13 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 8-13 FT), four rebounds, three blocks, two assists, and one steal across 43 minutes during the 76ers' 109-108 overtime loss to the Bucks on Sunday.

    Analysis: Grant has scored in double figures during five straight games since returning from knee and quad injuries, which is the longest streak of his career. Over this recent stretch, Grant is averaging 15.6 points, 4.6 rebounds, 2.2 assists, 1.4 blocks, and one steal in 31 minutes per game. The sophomore lacks a consistent perimeter jumper, which makes it difficult to completely trust him offensively, but he attacks the rim with force and hustles hard on both ends. Given that the 76ers are surely hoping to end the campaign on a positive note, Grant figures to continue seeing quality minutes in the last two regular season contests.

    Update: Grant recorded 20 points (6-17 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 5-9 FT), nine rebounds, three assists, and one block in 37 minutes during Saturday's loss to the Pacers.

    Analysis: So much for that 275 minute restriction. Grant played 37 minutes and produced one of his best performances of the season. His 20 points are the most he's scored since Jan. 27 and he narrowly missed his fourth double-double, coming just one rebound shy. Grant has put together a very nice sophomore season but has struggled with consistency at times.

    Update: Grant will be capped at 25 minutes Saturday against the Pacers, Brian Seltzer of Sixers.com reports.

    Analysis: Grant returned to action Friday against the Hornets after missing the previous two games with bruises to his knee and quad. On the second night of the back-to-back set, Grant, who is still dealing with some soreness, will be limited to 25 minutes, though he's expected to remain in a starting role. Grant was limited to 20 minutes Friday night.

    Update: Grant (knee, quad) had 17 points (5-10 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 6-8 FT), two rebounds, two steals, two blocks, and one assist in 20 minutes during the 76ers' 100-91 loss to the Hornets on Friday.

    Analysis: Grant sat out the two previous games with a knee injury and a quad bruise. However, he returned and earned a start on Friday against the Hornets. Grant was supposed to be on a minutes restriction heading into the game, so it shouldn't be surprising that he didn't play more. The 76ers are slated for the second game of a back-to-back on Saturday against the Pacers, and Grant should probably be expected to receive similar playing time.

    Update: Grant will start Friday night against the Hornets, Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer reports.

    Analysis: Grant has missed the past two games due to a right knee contusion but will be back in the starting lineup Friday night. He may see his minutes restricted, in which case look for Robert Covington to see increased action off the bench.

    Update: Grant is expected to play in Friday's game against the Hornets, but will be on a minutes restriction, Bob Cooney of Daily News reports.

    Analysis: Grant is dealing with both a right knee injury and a quad contusion, which forced him to miss the Sixers' last two games. He's expected to return to the lineup Friday, although it's unclear if he'll be back with the starters. Grant is also expected to be a minutes restriction, which severely limits his fantasy upside. With that being said, we'll likely have to wait till closer to tip off before seeing who coach Brett Brown will have in the starting lineup.

    Update: Grant (knee) has been ruled out for the next two games, Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

    Analysis: Grant suffered a right knee and quad contusion in the first quarter of Sunday's game against the Warriors and will now be on the bench until at least Saturday. The 76ers are dealing with a host of injuries and will only have 10 players active for Tuesday's tilt with the Hornets. Look for Robert Covington to start in Grant's absence the next two games.

    Injury: YES

    Update: Grant (knee) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's matchup with Charlotte, Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer reports.

    Analysis: Grant sustained a knee bruise in Sunday's loss to the Warriors, which limited him to only three minutes of action. While he's still bothered by soreness, the 76ers will wait until Tuesday's shootaround to issue an update.

    Injury: YES

    Update: Grant suffered a right knee and quad contusion in the first quarter of Sunday's game against Golden State and will not return, Jessica Camerato of CSN reports.

    Analysis: Grant had recorded zero points on 0-for-2 shooting before exiting the game. More information will be known about the severity of Grant's injury in the near future, but for the time being it looks as if it is simply a bruise. His next chance to return will be Tuesday against the Hornets.

    Injury: YES

  • Mar 27 2016, 01:54 AM

    Update: Grant (illness) posted 13 points (4-11 FG, 5-10 FT), seven rebounds, three assists and four blocks over 31 minutes in Saturday's 108-105 loss to the Trail Blazers.

    Analysis: The sophomore forward shook off the illness that forced him to miss shootaround earlier Saturday to post his fifth double-digit scoring effort in the last six games. With Nerlens Noel forced to miss a second straight game with his knee injury, Grant played a large role down low in what turned out to be a near-upset for the Sixers. Considering that Jahlil Okafor (knee) is gone for the season, Grant's playing time appears more or less guaranteed to be in upper 20s at a minimum for the duration of the campaign.

    Update: Grant will play in Saturday's game against Trail Blazers, despite missing morning shootaround after fallign ill, Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

    Analysis: Grant is averaging 31 minutes over his last five games, and he'll likely be in store for a similar outing Saturday, barring a resurgence of his illness mid-game. The Sixers' frontcourt attack could end up running through Grant on Saturday, as Nerlens Noel (knee) looks to be uncertain to play.

    Injury: NO

  • Mar 18 2016, 20:36 PM

    Update: Grant finished with 15 points (4-14 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 7-12 FT), seven rebounds, three blocks, and two assists across 34 minutes during the 76ers' 111-97 loss to the Thunder on Friday.

    Analysis: Grant is averaging 14 points, six rebounds, three blocks, one assist, and 0.5 steals in 32 minutes per game over the back-to-back stretch the last two nights versus the Thunder and Wizards. Considering he recently missed two contests with a concussion, Grant has been excellent lately. Still, he has made just six-of-20 from the field and 16-of-26 from the free-throw line in these two matchups, which is tough to stomach in leagues that put a premium on shooting percentages.

    Update: Grant (concussion) will play Thursday night against the Wizards, Tom Moore of Calkins Media reports.

    Analysis: Grant was initially slated to sit out Thursday before potentially returning over the weekend, but he's ahead of schedule in his recovery from a concussion and has cleared the league's protocol. Prior to sustaining the concussion, Grant had played at lest 30 minutes in six straight games, though it's unclear if he'll immediately be thrust back into a major role.

    Injury: NO

    Update: Grant (concussion) is expected to return this weekend, though it's unclear which game of the Sixers' back-to-back set he's targeting, Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

    Analysis: Grant has already been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Nets, and this latest report would seem to imply he'll also sit out Thursday against the Wizards. The 76ers then host the Thunder on Friday and Celtics on Sunday, so Grant will likely be back for one of those contests if he progresses through the league's concussion protocol as expected.

    Injury: YES

    Injury Status: OUT

  • Mar 14 2016, 14:47 PM

    Update: Grant (concussion) won't play Tuesday against the Nets, the Philadelphia Inquirer's Keith Pompey reports.

    Analysis: Grant will remain in the league's concussion protocol for at least one more game, as will teammate Robert Covington, after the two collided during Friday's matchup with the Nets. Both players' next chance to return will come Thursday when the 76ers return home to host the Wizards.

    Injury: YES

    Injury Status: OUT

  • Mar 12 2016, 10:23 AM

    Update: Grant (concussion) will not play Saturday against the Pistons, Jessica Camerato of Basketball Insiders reports.

    Analysis: Grant collided with Robert Covington during Friday's game against the Nets, and both players have been ruled out Saturday as they go through the NBA's concussion protocol. With Richaun Holmes and Jahlil Okafor also out, Nerlens Noel will be saddled with a heavy workload Saturday night. Grant's next chance to return will come Tuesday in Brooklyn.

    Injury: YES

    Injury Status: OUT

  • Mar 11 2016, 17:55 PM

    Update: Grant will not return to Friday's matchup with the Nets as he is being evaluated for concussion like symptoms, Brian Seltzer of Sixers.com reports.

    Analysis: Grant was involved in a serious collision with teammate Robert Covington resulting in Covington being stretchered to the locker room. The health of both Grant and Covington is our first concern here. Seeing Grant is dealing with concussion like symptoms he should likely be considered doubtful for the Magic's Saturday matchup with the Pistons. Expect an update on his status when more information becomes available.

    Injury: YES

    Injury Status: OUT

  • Mar 05 2016, 06:09 AM

    Update: Grant registered six points (2-9 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-3 FT), seven rebounds, two assists, two blocks, and one steal across 38 minutes during the 76ers' 112-102 loss to the Heat on Friday.

    Analysis: Grant earned yet another start on Friday while Nerlens Noel (knee) and Jahlil Okafor (shin) sat out. It wasn't a superb showing by any stretch of the imagination, though Grant did manage to contribute in every category except three-pointers. If Grant had a reliable outside shot, he would probably be a quality rotation player, but until he develops that it's tough to imagine him as an NBA mainstay. Nevertheless, over the last five games, Grant is averaging 9.4 points, six rebounds, 2.6 assists, 2.2 blocks, and one steal in 33 minutes per contest.
