    Greg Monroe reportedly has an agreement in principle with Bayern Munich of Germany.

    Monroe spent the 2018-19 season contributing off the bench for some of the Eastern Conference's best teams in the Raptors, Sixers and Celtics. Monroe is a deep-reserve at this point in the career and was unlikely to find a team willing to give him a more significant role. By heading overseas, he should get a much heftier payday and could have an NBA clause in the contract so he can return towards the back end of the season.

    Greg Monroe was no help to the Sixers on Sunday, logging 11 minutes with two points and three rebounds.

    Monroe went 1-of-4 from the field and missed a few gimmes at the rim, which the Sixers will certainly be frustrated about after missing a ton of shots at the cup in the first half. He also finished as a staggering minus-18 in his time on the court. The Sixers caught lightning in a bottle in Game 2 but might have to consider a new solution at the backup center spot moving forward.

    Greg Monroe (sprained left ankle) is available for Thursday's Game 3 against the Raptors.

    Monroe was a game-time decision but will gut it out after making a notable impact in Game 2. He looks to have taken over the backup center job in this matchup, though the returning Mike Scott may also factor into that equation as well.

    Greg Monroe (left ankle sprain) is a game-time decision ahead of Thursday's matchup against the Raptors.

    Greg Monroe (left ankle sprain) is probable to play in Thursday's matchup against the Raptors.

    Monroe was excellent on Monday night before injuring his ankle after only 12 minutes. He was able to post 10 points to go along with five rebounds in that amount of time. If Monroe is ultimately unable to play Thursday, look for the Sixers to lean more on rookie Jonah Bolden with an outside chance of Boban Marjanović seeing the floor. Expect Monroe to be available but monitor his status ahead of game-time.

    Greg Monroe (sprained left ankle) was able to practice on Wednesday and anticipates playing in Thursday's Game 3.

    Monroe put up 10 points and five rebounds in 12 minutes before getting hurt in Game 2 and gave the Sixers a big jolt in the backup center spot that gave them issues in Game 1. Expect him to continue being Joel Embiid's primary backup as long as he's healthy.

    Greg Monroe (ankle sprain) will not return to Game 2 on Monday night.

    Monroe had a productive 12 minutes tonight. His night ends with 10 points (4-of-7 FGs, 2-of-2 FTs), five boards, one assist and one block. Since he was once considered available to return, there's a good chance he'll be ready for Thursday's Game 3.

    Greg Monroe (ankle sprain) is available to return to Monday's Game 2.

    Monroe has been effective tonight so far with Joel Embiid needing some extra rest. The Sixers may want to get him back in as the primary backup center.

    Greg Monroe headed to the locker room in the third quarter on Monday.

    We'll keep an eye on his status. In the meantime, this should mean a bit of Jonah Bolden and Boban Marjanovic to spell Joel Embiid when needed.

    Greg Monroe and Jonah Bolden were ejected in the final minutes of Game 5 during a late-game scuffle on Tuesday.

    Bolden and Monroe were involved in a few frustration shoves with Rodions Kurucs and Dzanan Musa, who were also ejected on Tuesday. The league will look at the incident and see if fines or suspensions are merited.

    Joel Embiid (left knee soreness) has been downgraded to doubtful for Saturday’s Game 4 vs. the Nets.

    This news isn’t surprising seeing as Embiid missed Game 3 due to the knee pain. With the Sixers up 2-1 in the first round series, Embiid could sit out another one. Greg Monroe, who started Game 3, Jonah Bolden and Boban Marjanovic would be the prime beneficiaries with Amir Johnson also in line to pick up a few minutes.

    Greg Monroe scored 14 points with six assists in Wednesday's season finale victory against the Bulls.

    Monroe's playstyle has made him fall out of the fold in the current NBA, but he's still talented enough to put up decent numbers when he gets the chance. He finished the season outside the top-400 players in 8 and 9-cat formats, but was inside the top-200 in his six games with Philadelphia. He's just an emergency big man for the Sixers.

    Greg Monroe put on a show on Tuesday, leading the Sixers with 18 points on 6-of-8 shooting from the field a 6-for-6 spread from the line in 19 minutes off the bench.

    Monroe added four boards and two dimes to his efficient shooting night. Sans Joel Embiid, Monroe outplayed Jonah Bolden, who started but failed to score on 0-of-3 attempts (all from 3-point range) and just recording an assist to his name. Monroe has been able to provide late-round value as an end-of-season addition to the Sixers roster.

    Greg Monroe made his Sixers debut on Saturday, posting nine points, two rebounds, two assists and a steal in 10 minutes of action.

    Monroe was going to get some run regardless of whether or not Joel Embiid played, and he ended up playing the same amount as Boban Marjanovic. He offers slightly more utility in smaller matchups than Boban, but we wouldn't anticipate seeing Moose much the rest of the way.
