When Wilson Chandler got injured in the Sixers’ first preseason game, coach Brett Brown gave the minutes to Jerryd Bayless, despite them playing different positions, saying after the game Bayless had looked good so far in training camp and earned the run.

Sunday, Bayless suffered a knee sprain at practice that will have him out three to four weeks, the team announced Monday.

This is a blow to the depth of the Sixers, but not one that will dramatically impact regular season rotation minutes. During the preseason it will mean more minutes for rookie Landry Shamet.
