Wroten indicated Tuesday that he was still weighing his options after meeting with specialists, but he has decided to undergo the third operation on his right knee. He'll be sidelined for the remainder of the season as he recovers.
Wroten averaged 16.9 points and 5.2 assists in 30 games.
"I have been seeing a lot of doctors and getting a lot of different opinions," Wroten said. "I am just putting a lot of pieces together and figuring out my next steps.
"A partial tear is so different than a torn ACL. It is not a guarantee, 100 percent, that I have to have surgery. It is a tough decision, an important decision that I want to make. I want to talk it over with Sam Hinkie and the doctors."
If Wroten does have surgery, it will be the third operation on his right knee.
"I would rather have that than it continue to be different knees," he said. "It is just a part of the game. It isn't something that they can't fix. It isn't something I can't recover from."
Wroten suffered the partially torn ACL during Jan. 16's game against the Pelicans. The injury will require surgery to repair the ligament in his knee.
"Until the procedure takes place, we are unable to provide a specific timeline for his return to play," the team said in a press release.
Wroten was averaging a team-high 16.9 points with 5.2 assists in 30 games this season.
Wroten has been sidelined five consecutive games with a knee sprain. He remains without a timetable. Before the injury, he averaged 16.9 points and 5.2 assists in 30 contests.
It will be the fifth straight game Wroten has missed while dealing with a knee issue. He is currently in Los Angeles having his knee examined and coach Brett Brown said anything is possible in terms of the diagnosis, reports the Bucks County Courier Times. Guard
The 76ers are 2-point underdogs to the Knicks.
