MINNEAPOLIS – Nik Stauskas is listed as day-to-day with a left knee contusion on the outside of his left knee.

The 76ers shooting guard suffered the injury in the first half of Monday’s 100-95 setback against the Minnesota Timberwolves at the Target Center. MRIs Tuesday were negative for any additional injury.

Stauskas (two points) left the game with 6 minutes, 19 seconds left in the half because of pain. He felt a bruise from getting kneed in his knee.

“When I stood up to go to the locker room at halftime, walking just didn’t feel right,” Stauskas said. “I got some tests done from the doctors here, and they were just a little concerned.”
