Tony Wroten (knee) seemed to suggest on his personal Twitter account that he was eyeing a Dec. 11 return to the court. "Just wanna help my team. In due time though. My time coming. 12/11," Wroten posted.
The Philadelphia 76ers are scheduled to play the Pistons on Dec. 11, which will come on the second half of a back-to-back set. Wroten, who has been rehabbing his knee and participating in practices with the 76ers' D-League affiliate in Delaware, tore the ACL of his right knee last January. Because of the long recovery process, Wroten will more than likely be subjected to limited minutes once he's cleared to return to the 76ers. The Dec. 11 date that Wroten threw out shouldn't be taken as a given for his return date, but it would seem to align with coach Brett Brown's previous suggestion that the point guard will be ready to go by some point in December.
Tony Wroten (knee) said Monday that he's recently begun playing 5-on-5 during practices and believes he's "getting closer" to making his season debut, Tom Moore of Calkins Media reports.
Although Wroten seems to be making slight progress in his recovery from a torn right ACL, Philadelphia 76ers coach Brett Brown indicated Monday that the team was "still talking the first week of December" as the earliest possible return date for the point guard. Wroten will likely continue to rehab with Delaware, the Sixers' D-League affiliate for the next couple of weeks before potentially making his season debut at some point next month.
Tony Wroten has been assigned to the 87ers of the NBA D-League, Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Wroten has been recovering from a partially torn ACL and isn't expected back until mid December. His shift to the D-League is likely to keep a roster spot open for a healthy player while Wroten recovers, and he will likely be back when he is ready to play or participate in practices.
Tony Wroten (knee) took part in some one-on-one activity off to the side during Monday's practice, Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
It's a higher level of activity than expected from Wroten at this juncture in his recovery from a torn ACL, but the Sixers haven't budged from their projected return timeline of December for the point guard. Until he starts taking part in full practices with the rest of the squad, Wroten can't be considered close to a return.
Tony Wroten could be missing from action until December, Keith Pompey of the Philly Inquirer reports.
Originally thought to be missing until the end of October, Wroten (Partial ACL tear/surgery) may not be seeing action until December as he rehabs. When healthy, Wroten will battle Isaiah Canaan for the starting point guard role.
