The 76ers have decided to stay with Dario Saric.

The power forward will make his third consecutive start Wednesday night against the Atlanta Hawks at Wells Fargo Center.  Saric started the past two games because guard J.J. Redick was sidelined with lower-back tightness. However, Redick is available Wednesday. The two will start alongside Ben Simmons, Joel Embiid and Robert Covington.

Jerryd Bayless, who started the first seven games, will come off the bench.

It's easy to see why Saric remained a starter.

And the 23-year-old was impressive in his two starts, averaging 13 points. Meanwhile, he had a tough time getting involved in his five games coming off the bench .Saric averaged 5.6 points and just three of 14 three-pointers (21.4 percent).
