Do not expect to see Zhaire Smith on the basketball court anytime soon, at least not during 2018.

The 76ers are no stranger to rookie injuries, especially ones that keep their rookies sidelined for prolonged amounts of time. The Sixers are also familiar with bizarre injuries and situations that can be categorized as anything but typical. Smith has firmly been added to that list.

On Friday night the Sixers released a medical update on Smith.

“Zhaire Smith is recovering well after receiving additional medical treatment for complications derived from the allergic reaction that initially required a thoracoscopy,” the statement read. “His return to athletic training has yet to be determined and as such, there is no timetable for his return to play.”

According to a team source, the timetable has been pushed into 2019 and even then it’s not certain.

A three-team deal that would have sent Trevor Ariza to the Washington Wizards and Kelly Oubre to the Memphis Grizzlies is dead over which Brooks — MarShon or Dillon — the Phoenix Suns had believed they were getting, league sources said.

The Grizzlies and Suns didn’t communicate directly on the trade, using Washington as a conduit in coordinating the three-team deal. Washington believes it was told Dillon Brooks in conversations with Memphis, sources said. The Grizzlies insist they told Washington it was MarShon.

Memphis would not put Dillon Brooks in the trade, and in the end, the agreement was called off.

Jabari Parker won’t be with the Bulls next season.

Heck, he might not be with them much longer. The Bulls, according to sources, have engaged in trade talks with several teams regarding Parker, who fell out of new coach Jim Boylen’s rotation Thursday.

There’s considerable interest in Parker, 23, who remains a versatile scorer. Finding the right match financially is the obstacle that needs to be cleared, but there’s motivation to get a deal done.
