Seth Curry to Miss Next Two Games for Sixers
Philadelphia Sixers starting guard Seth Curry will miss the next two games due to a left ankle sprain and be re=evaluated after this weekends back-to-back against the Kings and the Knicks.
Curry, 30, had to leave Wednesday’s loss to the Milwaukee Bucks. Curry has been one of the team’s most important players this year, averaging 12.9 points per game, shooting 43.2% from 3-point range.
With Curry out, expect to see more of Shake Milton and Furkan Korkmaz at the off-guard position next to Ben Simmons.
Losing Curry is a big blow, especially without Embiid, who is out with a knee injury. Curry is the teams best thee-point threat, and provides much needed spacing on the floor.
Without him, Milton got the call and came off the bench to 15 points, three rebounds, four assists, a steal and a 3-pointer in 20 minutes of action. Korkmaz also shot the ball well on Wednesday night, knocking down 3-of-4, three-pointers in 19 minutes.
Saturday and Sunday's games are both set for a 8 p.m. tipoff you can hear on 97.3 ESPN, South Jersey's Sixers station!
