Philadelphia 76ers Update On Tony Wroten
The following is a statement from Philadelphia 76ers President of Basketball Operations and General Manager Sam Hinkie regarding the status of Sixers guard Tony Wroten.
“During our game against the New Orleans Pelicans on January 16, Tony Wroten suffered an injury to his right knee. Over the past week, we have worked closely with Tony, our medical and sports performance teams, his representatives, and renowned specialists in order to reach an accurate diagnosis and provide him with the best possible care.
“After this extensive process, it has been determined that Tony sustained a partial tear of the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee and that the best course of action for Tony’s basketball career is to repair his ACL surgically. While the precise timing and details of the procedure are still being finalized, what has been determined is that the ACL will need to be surgically repaired.
“Until the procedure takes place, we are unable to provide a specific timeline for his return to play.”
