76ers guard Tony Wroten (knee) to miss at least a week

Saturday November 29th, 2014

Philadelphia 76ers guard Tony Wroten will miss at least one week with a right knee sprain, the team announced on Friday. 

Wroten sustained the injury during a loss to the Brooklyn Nets on Wednesday and will be re-evaluated on Dec. 5.

Over 15 games this season, Wroten has averaged a team-high 17.9 points and 6.3 assists in 32.6 minutes. The 21-year-old is in his second season with the 76ers since being traded from the Memphis Grizzlies in August 2013. He was a first-round pick in the 2012 draft out of Washington.

Philadelphia (0-15) has yet to win a game this season. It hosts the Dallas Mavericks (11-5) on Saturday. Hollis Thompson is expected to take Wroten's place in the starting lineup.
