Jerami Grant Rumors

All NBA Players

The answer is yes, for all the fans wondering if the 76ers interviewed Jerami Grant’s older brother here at the NBA Combine. “We talked about my brother a little bit,” said Jerian Grant, a former point guard at Notre Dame whose brother Jerami recently completed in rookie season with the Sixers. “But we talked about how I would fit in with their team,” Jerian added. “It would be exciting [to play with Jerami]. At this point in our lives, our games have really grown and the chance to play together would be really run.”
Point guard Michael Carter-Williams left at the 7-minute, 31-second mark of the third quarter with a left shin contusion. His status was not known for the game Tuesday against the Denver Nuggets at the Wells Fargo Center. Rookie center Nerlens Noel was benched for the final 4:39 of the game in favor of reserve Jerami Grant, who was more effective. “It says that we are right there and we have fight,” Grant said of hanging tough with the Cavs and the Hawks on consecutive games. “I think eventually we are going to get over the hump and start turning these into wins.”
Never mind the murmurs that sometimes rise to audible levels. Never mind the continued insistence by some Syracuse fans that he should have stayed for his junior season, that he could have rescued the Orange from its current 6-3 predicament. Grant has no regrets. “Not at all,” he said Friday night before the Sixers faced Charlotte at the Wells Fargo Center. “My dream was to make it to the NBA and I’m here now. What happens from here on out is up to me.”
76ers coach Brett Brown said Monday that injured forward Jerami Grant “is still a ways away” from returning. The rookie is out with a sprained right ankle. The former Syracuse standout hasn’t practice since the second day of training camp on Oct. 1. Back then, he was hospitalized for dehydration. Grant first injured his ankle during offseason workouts. Brown had expected him to return on Nov. 5. “I don’t really know the time frame,” Brown said. “I think it could be a little as eight to 10 days. But in regards to a specific time frame, I’m not really sure.”
