Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer said that Tony Wroten's (knee) rehab is going well and that he is expected to be ready for the start of the season.
Pompey also said that Wroten is expected to be the starting point guard, but it's really just great to see him nearing a return after recovering from a torn ACL. Wroten could kill your percentages and turns the ball over for fun, but he could play heavy minutes this season. He is worth a look in points leagues, but owners in standard leagues should probably look the other way. Aug 21 - 1:34 PM

General manager Sam Hinkie said Tony Wroten (knee) is "on track" to be ready for training camp.

Hinkie added he's "heard good things" about Wroten and the expectation is he'll be ready for camp. He suffered a partially torn ACL back in January, so nine months is a reasonable timeline to return. He is going to get plenty of chances for big minutes, but fantasy owners in standard leagues shouldn't be targeting him. After all, his unfriendly fantasy game last season gave him just ninth-round per-game value in eight-category leagues. He was not worth owning in standards.

The 76ers will give Tony Wroten "every opportunity" for next season, according to Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer.

We still need to see Wroten get clearance for contact following his ACL tear from last season. What's more, he's an interesting fit next to Nerlens Noel and Jahlil Okafor, who both take more than half of their shots from within three feet. Wroten also attempted 56.5 percent of his shots at the rim last season. We might have to call a lineup with Wroten, Noel and Okafor the Packed Elevator Offense for lack of spacing. Wroten's ceiling in standard leagues is very low, so he's really only a target in points leagues.

Tony Wroten (knee) is expected to be ready for the start of the 2015-16 season.

Wroten is currently rehabbing after having undergoing surgery to repair a partially torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee on February 3. Even if he's ready for the start of the regular season, the 22-year-old will likely need some time to get up to speed so he's not worth much more than a late-round flier for fantasy owners at the moment.

Tony Wroten (knee) could be available to start the 2015-16 season.

He had surgery on his ACL back in February, so he's far from a lock to be ready to go. The 76ers have the worst depth a point guard right now and they haven't ruled out bringing back Ish Smith just yet. We're also hoping to get a good look at Pierre Jackson this week. For now, Wroten would only be a late-round flier in deeper leagues.

Tony Wroten's recovery from knee surgery is going as planned.

"No great news," Sixers' head coach Brett 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 not be for a long time." Wroten will remain sidelined for the remainder of the 2014-15 season, but it's nice to know he hasn't experienced as setbacks up to this point. He's questionable for the beginning of next season.

Tony Wroten had season-ending ACL surgery on Tuesday.

The 76ers may provide an updated timetable in the coming weeks, but Wroten is out for the season and is questionable for the start of the 2015-16 season. Wroten will earn a guaranteed $2.2 million in Philadelphia next year, and if all goes well he could land a lucrative deal in restricted free agency prior to the 2016-17 season. His absence has guaranteed unlimited touches for Michael Carter-Williams, while opening up minutes for guys like JaKarr Sampson, K.J. McDaniels and Jerami Grant.

Tony Wroten is scheduled to undergo surgery to repair his torn ACL on Tuesday.

Wroten remains out for the 2014-15 season, and he'll be questionable for the 2015-16 season opener. Without Wroten, the Sixers will lean heavily upon Michael Carter-Williams, and K.J. McDaniels will also have an easier time getting into the rotation.

Tony Wroten (knee) will have surgery on his ACL.

It seemed like a no-brainer even though his ACL is only partially torn. Wroten is going to miss the rest of the season and he'll be questionable to start next season. Considering how he relies on his quickness, he might not be 100 percent until 2016. While he's out, Michael Carter-Williams will continue to miss his extra shots while K.J. McDaniels, Robert Covington and Jerami Grant also get more run on the wings.

Tony Wroten (knee) is weighing his options on what to do about his partial ACL tear.

Surgery was originally thought to be the only option, but Wroten still wants to explore other alternatives. "A partial tear is so different than a torn ACL," Wroten said. "It is not a guarantee, 100 percent, that I have to have surgery. It is a tough decision, an important decision that I want to make." Whether he opts for surgery or not, Wroten is likely to miss the rest of the regular season while Larry Drew II, K.J. McDaniels, Robert Covington, and Jerami Grant will all get a small boost in fantasy value.

Tony Wroten has been diagnosed with a partial tear of his right ACL and will have surgery.

He is without a timetable, but it will almost certainly end his season. Wroten was one of the most fun players to watch with his relentless attack on the rim and the Sixers are going to have a tough time replacing his sky-high usage rate of 30.3 in his 29.8 minutes per game. Larry Drew II will continue to be the backup point guard while it'll be a group effort of K.J. McDaniels, Robert Covington and maybe even Jerami Grant getting more minutes on the wings. Wroten can be cut in all leagues.

76ers head coach Brett Brown said the 76ers are concerned about Tony Wroten (knee).

Wroten flew out to California to see a knee specialist on Wednesday, so Brown's statement on Thursday doesn't exactly sound like good news. It would stand to reason that Wroten is doubtful to play in Friday's game against the Raptors and his fantasy owners may want to brace themselves for a prolonged absence. Michael Carter-Williams will continue to see all the minutes he can handle while Wroten is out, while Larry Drew II will see an uptick in minutes as well.

The 76ers are flying Tony Wroten (knee) out to California on Wednesday to see a specialist.

While this isn't doomsday news, it's never a good sign when a player flies across the country to meet with a specialist. The timing of Wroten's visit essentially rules him out for Wednesday's game against the Knicks which means that Michael Carter-Williams should see all the minutes he can handle Wednesday evening.

Tony Wroten (knee) will not play on Monday, and he could be dealing with a serious knee injury.

After Brett Brown gave an ominous update on Wroten's status over the weekend by saying "we're not in a position to talk in detail about him yet because we're still exploring stuff," Brown said on Monday that he has "no further information" about Wroten's status. The only thing he did say was "it might be" more than a sprained knee for Wroten. With Wroten sidelined, Michael Carter-Williams is locked into a huge role, and Larry Drew II will also get a bigger chance to prove himself on his 10-day deal.

Sixers' head coach Brett Brown gave an ominous quote regarding Tony Wroten's knee injury during a recent interview.

"We're not in a position right now to talk in detail about him yet because we’re still exploring stuff," said Brown. "We want to deliver something that’s 100-percent a decision. At this stage, we’re not there yet." A quote like that isn't very encouraging, and it appears Wroten could be looking at an extended absence. Michael Carter-Williams will get all the run he can handle with Wroten out, and K.J. McDaniels will also likely see more minutes.
