Furkan Korkmaz will remain unavailable for the next two weeks, as he suffered a left adductor injury in the Philadelphia 76ers’ loss to Cleveland on Sunday, via Philly Voice.

Korkmaz is expected to rest and he will be re-evaluated in two weeks. The forward from Turkey did not exactly set the world on fire during the first three games of the season for Philly.

He shot 25% from the field and an identical 25% from beyond the arc coming off the bench. Korkmaz is another option on the wing for the Sixers with Shake Milton being the bench mob leader during the first three regular-season games.

Matisse Thybulle is expected to take a chance to show up in the next games, as he played sparingly during Philly’s 2-1 start in the season.

At the same time, rookie Tyrese Maxey could also see his minutes going up due to Korkmaz’s absence with Simmons playing in a point forward role more often.
