Dario Saric is battered and fatigued. The 76ers power forward has played in 157 games of organized basketball in the last 17 months. Not only is he fatigued, it was revealed Tuesday that the rookie has been hampered with plantar fasciitis. Those are the reasons why the Sixers on Sunday instituted a 24-minute per game restriction on him for the rest of the season.
“I’m tired a little bit mentally, physically,” Saric said. “But I try to push myself to what is possible in this part of the season, in this kind of minute restriction. Of course, I have pain in the foot. But I really want to play. I really want to help the team.”
