Philadelphia 76ers guard Jerryd Bayless has been sidelined the past six games due to a bruised left wrist.

Jerryd Bayless is expected to return from a bruised left wrist against the Utah Jazz Monday night at the Wells Fargo Center.

The 76ers reserve combo guard has been sidelined the past six games with the injury. However, he is expected to resume action after participating in Sunday’s practice.

His presence will be a welcomed addition to a squad overcome with injuries to the guard and swingman positions.

Justin Anderson (shin splints in left leg), Markelle Fultz (scapular muscle imbalance and soreness in right shoulder) and Nik Stauskas (sprained right ankle) are all sidelined.

Bayless is fifth on the team in scoring at 11.0 points per game.
