Bolden, who’s spent a substantial amount of time with the Delaware Blue Coats, cracked a bone in his right leg during a G-League game in November. MRI scans revealed that he sustained a small cortical crack in the proximal fibula of his right leg.
Bolden will have a hard time finding minutes in Philly’s loaded front-court. In his six appearances with the Sixers this season, the Melbourne native has racked up averages of 1.7 points on 36.4 percent shooting from the field and 1.5 rebounds in 6.7 minutes per outing.
In other Sixers news, Wilson Chandler, who’s been dealing with a left quad injury, has also been cleared to play against the Raptors. Sarah Todd of the Philly Inquirer reports that Chandler was a full participant in Tuesday’s practice and is not listed on the team’s injury report. Markelle Fultz (shoulder) and Zhaire Smith (foot) are still listed as out.
