In the 2022 NBA Playoffs, the Philadelphia 76ers‘ floor spacing was… sort of bad, right?. Like, of the 15 players who logged at least a minute of action for Doc Rivers’ squad, only four had a 3 point shooting percentage of 40 percent or better, with three of those players, Shake Milton, Paul Reed, and Furkan Korkmaz doing so on less than two attempts per game.
Joe (ankle) is questionable for Thursday's Game 6 against Miami. Joe missed Game 4 but was cleared to play in Game 5 on Tuesday. However, he picked up a DNP-CD, so it's unclear if he may still be dealing with some soreness in his ankle. Either way, he's a complete non-factor when it comes to fantasy, so his status is mostly irrelevant.
Joe (ankle) will be available for Tuesday's Game 5 against Miami. Joe was questionable coming into the day but he'll return from the sprained ankle that sidelined him for Game 4. With that said, Joe is not a part of the regular rotation, so he'll likely only see garbage-time minutes if the game gets out of hand.
Joe (ankle) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's Game 5 against the Heat. Joe continues to deal with a sprained right ankle that kept him out of Sunday's Game 4 victory. The 2020 second-round pick has seen only garbage-time minutes during the playoffs, so his status ultimately won't have much of an impact on Doc Rivers' rotation.
Joe (ankle) is out for Sunday's Game 4 against the Heat, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports. Joe didn't appear in Game 3 on Friday, but the 76ers didn't indicate that his absence was due to an injury. However, he'll be unable to suit up Sunday due to a right ankle sprain. His absence shouldn't impact Philadelphia's rotation.
Joe is questionable for Sunday's Game 4 against the Heat due to a sprained right ankle. Joe didn't play in Game 3, so it's not exactly clear when he suffered the injury. He's played only a combined six minutes in the current series, so his potential absence won't affect the rotation.
The Sixers‘ starting five is one of the best in the league. The bench roster on the other hand has been exposed recently for being thin. With just a few weeks left before the playoffs begin, Doc Rivers should give Isaiah Joe more minutes and see if he can break into the playoff rotation as a shooter.

The Philadelphia 76ers have a high volume sniper from deep on their team who they, for some reason, have not incorporated into the rotation. Deep on the bench behind Shake Milton and Furkan Korkmaz, former Arkansas guard Isaiah Joe lies, waiting for his chance. Joe is in his second year and has not been given a real chance to show what he can do after being picked 49th in the 2020 draft. With Korkmaz struggling, the Sixers gave Isaiah Joe an opportunity against the Chicago Bulls, one he has to take advantage of going forward.
Joe provided three points (1-4 FG, 1-4 3Pt) and one rebound over 11 minutes during Monday's 121-106 victory over the Bulls. The 22-year-old Arkansas product remains mostly buried on Philadelphia's bench. Even with Furkan Korkmaz receiving a DNP-CD after multiple underwhelming outings, the bench landscape didn't shift in Joe's favor. The guard is experiencing a dip in three-point shooting in his second season. Despite his sniping proficiency in college, Joe has a career 34.8 percent average from deep during his time in the NBA.
Boy, oh boy, the Philadelphia 76ers could use another shooter. While the addition of James Harden undoubtedly helps to cover up for the team’s overall perimeter deficiencies, as the former MVP had already drained eight 3s through two games, when “The Beard” is off the court, 3 point shots have been rather hard to come by.
With Ben Simmons still in Philadelphia despite requesting a trade back in the summertime, he remains the Sixers' most prominent trade chip ahead of the 2022 NBA trade deadline, which kicks in on Thursday afternoon. Outside of the Simmons-related rumors, the Sixers haven't had any players that have become of...
The Philadelphia 76ers‘ rotation is weird. The team hasn’t had a single player appear in all 50 of their games thus far, and seven of their current players, Shake Milton, Charles Bassey, Paul Reed, Charlie Brown Jr., Myles Powell, Jaden Springer, and Ben Simmons (obviously) have appeared in 30 games or fewer for one reason or another.
Joe posted 11 points (4-7 FG, 3-5 3Pt), one rebound and one assist in 25 minutes during Wednesday's 106-103 loss to the Wizards. Joe was productive again Wednesday, having now scored double-digit points in back-to-back games. He had only hit that threshold three prior times this season. The 22-year-old Arkansas product is connecting on 34.9 percent of his shots as well as just 32.3 percent from deep. His lack of efficiency from deep is especially concerning, as Joe had knocked down 37.8 percent of his attempts on 9.1 threes per game during his collegiate career.
Philadelphia 76ers guard Charlie Brown Jr. will start Sunday in the team's game against the San Antonio Spurs. Brown came off the bench on Friday, but that will change two days later to close out the week. He is being elevated to a starting role against the Spurs, and in a corresponding move, Isaiah Joe will revert to the bench.
Joe isn't starting Sunday's game against the Spurs, Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports. Although Seth Curry (ankle) remains sidelined Sunday, Joe will come off the bench after he made his first start of the season in Friday's loss to the Clippers. Charlie Brown will join the starting lineup Sunday.

PHILADELPHIA — Just when you thought the 76ers couldn’t get any more lineup permutations jammed into one season, Doc Rivers had to dial up something new Friday. Isaiah Joe made his first start of the season in a calamitous 102-101 loss to the Los Angeles Clippers. Seth Curry...
Joe closed Friday's 102-101 loss to the Clippers with three points (1-4 FG, 1-4 3Pt) and one steal in 15 minutes. With Seth Curry (ankle) sidelined, Joe made his first start of the season. However, he failed to impress in limited time and was on the court less than Charlie Brown (22 minutes), who came off the bench. Regardless, neither Brown nor Joe garners fantasy consideration.
