Sixers guard Tyrese Maxey has been placed on the NBA’s health and safety protocols list, according to the Inky.
Maxey is now questionable for the 76ers’ game tonight at the Wiz.
Maxey’s New Jersey home caught on fire around 7 p.m. on Friday, and it suffered significant damage. Maxey and his family are all safe. Officials said the fire was deemed accidental and started in the garage, though it’s not clear what actually started the blaze.
Maxey is now one of five Sixers in COVID-19 protocols. Georges Niang, Andre Drummond, Shake Milton and Danny Green are all sidelined, though there is hope that Niang may be eligible to return.
