Injury Update: Tyrese Maxey returns to 76ers practice, ran for the first time since foot injury
Quick update from the 76ers today regarding Tyrese Maxey.
Maxey has been out of the Sixers’ lineup since November 18th after suffering a small fracture in his left foot against the Milwaukee Bucks. He was expected to miss 3-4 weeks after reports indicated that no surgery was necessary.
Today, Maxey ran for the first time since his foot injury. He has also been cleared to shoot again. According to Noah Levick of NBC Sports Philly, Doc Rivers told the media at practice that Maxey is not yet sprinting or jumping and still “a ways away” from taking the court again.
