Ersan Ilyasova will be available to play Thursday against the Cavs in a bench role.
Ilyasova already knows the Sixers very well as he played with them last year and found success in spurts, so it is not surprising that he will already be able to play. Brett Brown has stated that Dario Saric will remain the starting power forward and Ilyasova’s role will be off the bench. The Sixers still have Amir Johnson and Richaun Holmes in the frontcourt and it will remain to be seen how the backup minutes shake out. In addition, the recent addition of Marco Belinelli will limit Ilyasova’s scoring potential off the bench. He does not need to be owned unless there is an injury that allows him to start.
