Wroten tore his ACL in January but noted that his rehab is going well and he expects to return at some point during the 2015-16 season.
"Rehab is going great," Wroten said. "I want to be able to play and not worry about it."
That last sentence would seem to imply that Wroten will not be rushing back, and with the Sixers likely to be out of the playoff race early in the year, the team doesn't have much of an incentive to expedite his return.
“No great news,” Brown said. “No new news, just on track, doing well ... We are getting more organized with him. But he’s in great spirits and we look forward to welcoming him back. That will be not for a long time.”
Initially reported as a sprained knee, Wroten partially tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee against the Hawks on Jan. 13. Wroten remains the Sixers’ leading scorer at 16.9 points per game.
Brown was unable to provide an update on how the surgery went Tuesday.
His season finished averaging 16.9 points and 5.2 assists in 30 games.
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."
