As the Sixers begin to prepare for the postseason, it seems as if the front office behind the team will attempt to see what they have in the recently signed Greg Monroe, as he’ll be in for a minutes increase tonight.

According to Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Enquirer, the Sixers plan on giving Monroe extended minutes tonight, with the plan also aiming to get Jonah Bolden more time at the four position. With Joel Embiid suffering through some lingering injuries, the Sixers decided to acquire Monroe for additional depth, and with the team looking for big man help, hopes he can help them reach their dreams of winning an NBA Championship.

Monroe initially started the season with the Toronto Raptors, and has appeared in 40 games this season, averaging 4.7 points, 4.0 rebounds, and 10.7 minutes per game. While his play has declined throughout the years, Monroe has still been a stalwart in the league, playing in nine seasons and still being able to contribute at a high level off the bench.

Originally selected by the Detroit Pistons with the seventh overall pick in the 2010 NBA Draft, Monroe played two seasons at Georgetown college, and holds a career average of 13.2 points, 8.3 rebounds, and 2.1 assists in 27.7 minutes per game. Currently, the Philadelphia Sixers appear to be locked into the third seed in the Eastern Conference, and will be waiting to see who they play, as the bottom half of the Eastern Conference playoff picture has yet to be decided.
