The 76ers announced on Monday that shooting guard Nik Stauskas has been diagnosed with a right tibia stress reaction, but will only be sidelined for the next two weeks as a “precautionary” measure. Brett Brown maintained that despite the injury, Stauskas should be ready for the season opener later this month.
After practice yesterday Stauskas himself commented to a group of media members (Including Philadunkia’s @therealmkbizzy), “Obviously this is a little bit of a setback, but I’m not too worried about it.”
Raise your hand if you have heard these lines come out of the 76ers’ practice facility in the last few years.
While each injury is unique and each player heals differently, the Sixers and Stauskas may want to pump the brakes on a quick return to action for #11.
