The Philadelphia 76ers will be without center Spencer Hawes for at least another two weeks. The big man continues to battle a strained left Achilles tendon, according to the Associated Press.
Hawes was examined over All-Star weekend by Dr. Richard Ferkel of the Southern California Orthopedic Institute, the team announced today. The big man will no longer wear a protective boot on his left foot, but it’s uncertain when he’ll play again. The Sixers closed the first half with five straight losses, slipping to fourth place in the Eastern Conference at 20-14. They're now 12-2 with Hawes in the lineup and 8-12 without him.
