Curry has missed the 76ers’ past six games due to health and safety protocols, and he was officially removed from the injury report for Wednesday’s matchup vs. the Celtics. That means he is clear to return to the lineup. That said, he will miss at least one more game after the 76ers ruled him out due to conditioning.
Curry has had a massive impact on the 76ers’ offense this season. He’s provided them with some much-needed perimeter shooting, and he’s knocked down a ridiculous 59.5% of his 3-point attempts through his first eight games. He’s likely due for some regression in that department, but his presence on the court has given Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons more freedom to do damage on the interior. The 76ers have increased their Net Rating by +25.1 points per 100 possessions with Curry on the court this season, so they will get a huge boost when he can return to the lineup.
The 76ers are currently listed as 4.5-point favorites over the Celtics, who are still playing without Jayson Tatum.
