Tyrese Maxey, a guard with the Philadelphia 76ers, suffered an injury to his left foot on Friday night and did not return to the game against the Milwaukee Bucks.
According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, the X-rays apparently came back negative, and the guard, who is 22 years old, is scheduled to get an MRI on Saturday.
In the first half of their game against the Bucks, Maxey had racked up 24 points, four rebounds, and five assists. He was well on his way to having a great night. However, he suffered an injury as a result of a foul that occurred late in the half, and he finally left the game for good.
Maxey was selected with the 21st overall selection in the 2020 NBA Draft, and he is currently averaging a career-high 21.9 points per game while shooting 40.8% from beyond the arc.
The 76ers have high hopes that Maxey, Joel Embiid, who is a regular contender for Kia MVP, and a healthy James Harden will all be able to contribute to the team’s ability to move beyond the second round of the playoffs for only the second time since 1985.
