(Associated Press)
Three games into their season, the 76ers have fallen on hard times offensively.

They rank last in the league with a .372 field-goal percentage, next-to-last with 85.3 points per game and 28th with 1.02 points per shot attempted.

Those stats undoubtedly will receive a lift when Andrew Bynum, who has a proclivity for taking high-percentage shots like lay-ups and dunks, returns to the court.

Here's a look at where the Sixers' offense is (or isn't) coming from:

Dorell Wright
Key 2012 stat: Ranks 130th of 132 qualifying players in field-goal percentage.
Career: 9.4 ppg, .437 FG%, .363 3FG%
Season: 13.0 ppg, .324 FG%, .250 3FG%

Nick Young
Key 2012 stat: Has scored 26 points on 34 field-goal attempts.
Career: 11.5 ppg, .428 FG%, .377 FG%
Season: 8.7 ppg, .265 FG%, .308 3FG%

Evan Turner
Key 2012 stat: Has shot 3-for-12 outside the paint
Career: 8.2 ppg, .433 FG%
Season: 9.0 ppg, .280 FG%

Jrue Holiday
Key 2012 stat: Somehow averaging 8.7 apg for league’s worst-shooting team
Career: 12.0 ppg, .440 FG%, .381 3FG%
Season: 19.3 ppg, .435 FG%, .533 3FG%
