76ers' Charles Bassey: Back in action from shoulder injury

Bassey played a minute and 23 seconds Wednesday in the 76ers' 119-103 loss to the Heat in Game 2 of the series, finishing with a rebound and a blocked shot.

Bassey hasn't appeared in an NBA game since Feb. 15, so even with Joel Embiid (face) sidelined, he's unlikely to make much of an impact.
