Sixer’s assist specialist TJ McConnell (shoulder sprain) said he would really like to play on Thursday against the Lakers.
Coach Brett Brown was also optimistic about McConnell’s return and he will be evaluated on Wednesday. His return will hurt Jerryd Bayless the most and he could steal a a few assists away from Ben Simmons, but other than that not much will change. The 25-year-old is top-115 per game for the season was actually hit top-50 over the last four games he played in. He will likely remain a borderline top-100 player and an assist specialist until Markelle Fultz (shoulder) returns.
