SIXERS HARRIS HAS RIGHT SHOULDER TENDINITIS, WHICH MAY EXPLAIN WHY HIS SHOOTING HAS SUCKED!

By Jerry Wein

If you’re a Sixers fan and you’re wondering why forward Tobias Harris has sucked so much this year, here’s a clue:

An MRI has revealed he is dealing with tendinitis in his right shoulder, per Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports.

Keith Pompey of the Inky noted Harris has right shoulder bursitis and biceps tendinitis.

Heading into the 2020-21 season, Bleacher Report’s Grant Hughes ranked Harris as the second-most overpaid player in the NBA. The early returns from his five-year, $180 million extension weren’t promising for Philadelphia.

The 6-8 forward was better in his second full season with the team. He averaged 19.5 points, 6.8 rebounds and 3.5 assists. More importantly, he shot a career-high 51.2 percent from the field and saw his three-point percentage (39.4) climb nicely from the season before (36.7).

This season he is scoring 18.4 points per game and shooting 29.5 percent from beyond the arc through 30 appearances.
