Famed fruit/vegetable shooter Nik Stauskas will be taking break from his side job of shooting basketballs for the 76ers.

Derek Bodner of Philadelphia magazine:

That timeline would put Stauskas back in time for the 76ers’ Oct. 28 opener against the Celtics, but this type of injury can linger.

Stauskas is looking for redemption this year after a rough rookie season with the Kings. His outside shooting should help space the floor for Jahlil Okafor and Nerlens Noel.

If Stauskas isn’t ready, Hollis Thompson would probably start at shooting guard.
