Jerryd Bayless  has been cleared to play in Monday night's game against the Miami Heat.

The 76ers point guard has been sidelined since the first couple of days of training camp with ligament damage in his left wrist. Bayless participated in a pregame workout and was reevaluated after that.
He will come off the bench.

"I felt pretty good the last couple of days," Bayless said. "So I'm just going to take it and see what happens ...."

Bayless said his wrist felt "OK" during the shootaround.  He said his wrist is not great.

"But it is what it is," Bayless said. "We are going to see tonight. After I'm done working out, I'll know for sure."

The determining factor will be soreness.  He won't play if it get really sore. Assuming he's unable to go, Bayless could play by the end of the week.

The Sixers assigned him to the Delaware 87ers, their NBA Development League affiliate, last week. He was sent there to practice with the Sevens last Monday and Tuesday while the Sixers were away. They had a road game against the Houston Rockets on Monday and were off on Tuesday.
The Sixers called him back up on Wednesday.
"It's sucks," Bayless said of not being able to play. "I don't know how to put it any other way. It hasn't been easy. I don't want to say bad luck. It was just unfortunate that something weird happened like that.
"There's always a silver lining there. So hopefully, now it's getting back to the point that I can get out there and help."

Bayless signed a three-year, $27 million free-agent deal with the Sixers back in July.  The ninth-year veteran averaged 10.4 points, 3.1 assists, 2.7 rebounds and 28 minutes last season with the Milwaukee Bucks.  The Sixers are his eighth NBA stop after being the 11th overall pick by the Indiana Pacers in 2008. The Pacers traded him to the Portland Trail Blazers 13 days later.
