Philadelphia 76ers guard Seth Curry has been cleared from the league’s health and safety protocols after he tested positive for COVID on Jan. 7, but he still has to be able to get back into game shape. He last played on Jan. 6 against the Washington Wizards so he still needs a bit more time.

Curry will miss Wednesday’s tilt with the Boston Celtics in order to ramp up his conditioning work. The team is off on Thursday before having to face the Celtics again on Friday so there is hope that he can return then. This is a normal procedure when it comes to players who miss an extended period of time.

In a season such as this one, the Sixers do not want to risk any injuries so they will bring Curry along slowly. He is shooting 59.5% from deep to begin the season so he is clearly an important part of their team, he just needs a little more time to get back in shape.

In the meantime, the Sixers will have Furkan Korkmaz return and they still have rookie Isaiah Joe who performed well in their absence. Tipoff is set for 7 p.m. EST from the Wells Fargo Center.
