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.

While it's expected that the Sixers will sit Embiid all year, just like they did with Nerlens Noel (torn ACL) the season before, Brown insisted the only thing he knows is that Embiid won't be back until after the mid-February all-star game. “We're not prepared to give any further timeline right now,” said Brown before Wednesday night's game at the Wells Fargo Center. “I go right back to how we handled Nerlens. I think everybody's got to see how we're treating our guys and the risk involved when somebody is not 100 percent, especially with a man of (Embiid's) size.” The Intelligencer

Some might argue that this victory comes with an asterisk. "We are not apologetic with this win at all," Sixers coach Brett Brown said. "I think it is unfair when you start weighing up [resumes]. . . . If we are about to compare resumes and years of experience and those types of things, accolades, have a look at my group: Young guys that don't know what they don't know and just came out and played. "I'm proud of our team." Philadelphia Inquirer

Pollack, 92, the 76ers' director of statistical information, was driving his car in a parking garage after being a judge for the Mummers Parade. His car hit a wall, and Pollack suffered a broken hip, ribs, pelvis and jaw along with facial lacerations. He underwent hip surgery yesterday. "I'm surprised he just didn't walk out of the car and brush himself off," 76ers coach Brett Brown said from Phoenix, where his team played the Suns last night. "He's a stud, an absolute stud. Our thoughts are with him. Clearly, someone like that, who has been involved in the league for over six decades, he's a stud. I see him walking around all the time through the building, and it's always great to have a conversation with him. We send our best wishes. Based on what he's done, you expect him to just bounce back any day and keep moving again." Philadelphia Inquirer

The 76ers have experimented some with playing Nerlens Noel at the power forward position. But coach Brett Brown doesn’t think that is his best fit. “I think right now, it’s a five,” Brown said. “I feel that we’re going to have to do the right thing by him and grow his game, which will allow him to better play alongside Joel Embiid.” Philadelphia Inquirer
