Tyrese Maxey expected to miss weeks with ‘small fracture’ in left foot

Already without James Harden due to a right foot tendon strain, the 76ers now will be without the other half of their elite backcourt for at least a couple of weeks and maybe a month or more.

Tyrese Maxey suffered a small fracture in his right foot during Friday night’s game, reports Noah Levick at NBC Sports Philadelphia. While officially he will be re-evaluated in two weeks, he is expected to miss 3-4 weeks, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

Maxey limped off the court just before half in Friday night’s game against the Bucks when he stepped on the foot of Jevon Carter on a drive.

Maxey is averaging 22.9 points a game and shooting 40.8% from 3 this season.

The 76ers have struggled with both Maxey and Harden off the court, posting a -7.4 net rating in those minutes. It could be a real issue in the coming weeks if the 76ers can’t overcome it as they did against the Bucks. Philadelphia was down seven at the half but came back on the Bucks to pick up the 110-102 win behind 32 points, 11 rebounds and eight assists from Joel Embiid.
