76ers coach Brett Brown said Monday that Tony Wroten’s recovery and rehabilitation are going as planned. The point guard is recovering from knee surgery on Feb. 3 to repair a partially torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee. “No great news,” Brown said. “No new news, just on track, doing well, goes back and forth from [his hometown of] Seattle to Philadelphia. 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.”
It seemed to be an innocent question, but for some reason, it seemed to catch the 76ers off guard. When asked for an update on Tony Wroten, who is out with a torn ACL in his right knee and said last week he needed surgery, Brett Brown said, “I’m not sure.” He then looked to public relations director Mike Preston for assistance. Preston said Wroten “was scheduled for a procedure [yesterday].” Pressed for more, Preston said they didn’t know more.
Tony Wroten decided that having surgery is his best option. The 76ers reserve point guard just doesn’t know when and where he’ll have the procedure to repair a partially torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee. “I can’t play with a partial tear to the ACL with the way I play, so it’s best to get the surgery,” Wroten said Wednesday before the Sixers played Detroit at the Wells Fargo Center.

The third-year veteran said he didn’t know how long hewould be sidelined. He leads the Sixers in scoring at 16.9 points per game. Wroten was noticeably disappointed as told reporters the news.

In a statement, Sixers general manager Sam Hinkie said Wroten’s partial tear would need to be surgically repaired. However, Wroten said Monday night that the team was still talking to doctors to determine if surgery is needed. “It’s not a guarantee 100 percent that you have to have surgery,” he said of a partial tear. “But that’s obviously a decision I’m trying to go with. But like I said, it’s a tough decision. It’s an important decision I want to make. I will continue to talk it over with the team and Hinkie and go on with the doctors.”
