Jerami Grant (concussion) will play on Thursday against the Sixers.
Grant’s return will have no minute limit attached to it and that means Carl Landry’s appeal gets sapped as he goes to the bench, and then guys like Nik Stauskas, Isaiah Canaan and Hollis Thompson have to fight harder to sustain some sort of late-round appeal. On the other hand, keep in mind that Philly (and Portland) have three games in the next four days. Adding any of them could have additional benefit depending on one’s format.
