76ers' Jerryd Bayless out 3-4 weeks with sprained knee

Philadelphia 76ers guard Jerryd Bayless is likely to miss the start of the regular season after spraining his knee in practice.

Bayless suffered the injury Sunday and will be re-evaluated in three to four weeks, the team said.

If he is out for only three weeks, Bayless will miss the first three games of the season -- at Boston in the Sixers' opener Oct. 16, and at home against Chicago and Orlando.

Bayless, 30, averaged 7.9 points and 1.4 assists in 24 minutes per game last season.
