The following is a statement from Philadelphia 76ers President of Basketball Operations and General Manager Sam Hinkie regarding the status of Sixers guard Tony Wroten. “During our game against the New Orleans Pelicans on January 16, Tony Wroten suffered an injury to his right knee. Over the past week, we have worked closely with Tony, our medical and sports performance teams, his representatives, and renowned specialists in order to reach an accurate diagnosis and provide him with the best possible care. After this extensive process, it has been determined that Tony sustained a partial tear of the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee and that the best course of action for Tony’s basketball career is to repair his ACL surgically. While the precise timing and details of the procedure are still being finalized, what has been determined is that the ACL will need to be surgically repaired." NBA.com

Williams is averaging 15.1 points per game and once again is proving to be one of the best reserves in the NBA - he led the 76ers in scoring as a reserve in his final season here. He said the biggest problem with the deliberately bad 76ers (8-34) is that there simply are no true veterans to guide the young team. "It's like the blind leading the blind because they don't have veterans on the roster," Williams said Thursday after the Raptors' practice on Temple's campus. "You don't know what's around the corner; you don't know what's coming next. "There are just a whole lot of things - like how hard it is to play with the all-star break right around the corner - that you have to know to be successful in this league. They probably still don't know that every team is going to try to come in and whip their [behinds] because they are still trying to learn the league, so it's very tough on them."

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

"That's my brother," Noel said when asked whether there was any bad blood between him and Carter-Williams. "Obviously, anybody could get more touches. I thought the ball was stagnant. If the ball is moving and everybody gets touches, not even really shots, just touches [it's better]. You have to feel like you're in the game and you're able to contribute on that side of the floor, whether it's passing or just getting shots." Philadelphia Inquirer
