Still experiencing soreness, Bayless probable vs Cavs

Jerryd Bayless is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Cleveland Cavaliers at the Wells Fargo Center.

The 76ers point guard sat out Saturday's light practice with soreness in his left wrist.  Bayless missed the first 13 games of the season after tearing a ligament in the wrist during training camp in September.

"It sucks, but it kind of is what it is now," Bayless said of dealing with the soreness.

The 6-foot-2, 210-pounder said he felt soreness throughout Friday's loss to the Chicago Bulls.  He said he received treatment all day Friday before the game.

"I'm just trying to manage it as much as I can," he said.

The Sixers (4-12) signed Bayless in the summer to be their starting point guard. Due to the injury, he's only played three games, making his long-awaited start on Friday.

He finished that game with 11 points, four rebounds and two assists in the 26 minutes. Bayless is averaging 11.0 points, 4.3 assists and 4.0 rebounds.
