Tony Wroten has a sprained right knee, and will not play on Tuesday.
This injury came out of nowhere, and it leaves the 76ers with just eight active players for their game vs. the Heat. We will pass along updates as soon as we know more, but given the cautious nature of the 76ers Wroten may see some additional time on the sidelines. K.J. McDaniels will see his role increased off of the bench and should be owned in most leagues for his upside. Dec 23 - 7:43 PM

Tony Wroten scored 19 points with one rebound, three assists, one block and four 3-pointers in 24 minutes against the Hornets on Friday.

He is going to stay on the bench with Alexey Shved no longer on the team. Wroten will have a higher usage rate when he's not next to Michael Carter-Williams and should have solid dimes, as well. He should have solid fantasy value in points leagues, but the shooting percentage and turnovers are huge negative for standard leagues.

Tony Wroten said that he's ready for a bigger role with the 76ers, but the decision is ultimately up to head coach Brett Brown.

"If [Brown] feels it's best to ease me in and bring me off the bench, that's what he's going to do," said Wroten. Wroten took just three shot attempts during his last outing, despite playing just under 30 minutes. Michael Carter-Williams does not pair well with Wroten, so it's not likely he'll return to the starting lineup anytime soon. His propensity to turn the ball over, partnered with poor percentages makes him a difficult guy to own in standard leagues.
Dec 16 - 5:13 PM

Tony Wroten did not score on his three attempts from the field in 30 minutes against the Celtics on Monday, adding four rebounds, one assist and four turnovers during a 105-87 loss.

Yikes. Wroten had two attempts from beyond the arc and never really got into a rhythm on offense. The 76ers are giving more shots to Robert Covington to help space the floor, so Wroten's usage rate is likely going to drop. He's not worth owning in standard leagues.
Dec 15 - 10:27 PM

Tony Wroten scored 17 points in 19 minutes against the Grizzlies on Saturday with two rebounds, five assists, one block and two 3-pointers.

It was almost a revenge game, but Philly lost. He looked a heck of a lot better and was running the offense while he was out there. Wroten put up a 30.2 usage rate tonight and alleviated any concern of an injury. He is going to have some ugly percentages and high turnovers, so he's really going to have a tough time being a top-125 guy.
Dec 13 - 11:09 PM

Coach Brett Brown said Tony Wroten is "a little gimpy" based on his performance on Friday.

He was sloppy in his return, making 2-of-10 from the field in 22 minutes. Wroten might see his minutes held in check a bit tonight and his fantasy owners might want to bench him until further notice.
Dec 13 - 5:56 PM

Tony Wroten made 2-of-10 from the field for 12 points with three rebounds, three assists, one steal and one 3-pointer in 22 minutes against the Nets on Friday.

He turned the ball over four times and just was awful in his return. Wroten is going to do a decent job of putting up stats, but his woeful percentages and turnovers will make him tough to own in standard leagues.
Dec 13 - 12:09 AM

Tony Wroten (knee) will play Friday vs. the Nets.

Wroten is expected to come off the bench on Friday, but he should still see heavy minutes for the Sixers. Wroten shoots poor percentages and turns the ball over a lot, making him a more attractive option in points leagues, but with averages of 17.9 points, 6.3 assists, and 1.9 steals per game, he's worth a look if available on the wire. It'll be interesting to see how Wroten's return affects Robert Covington.
Dec 12 - 11:25 AM

Tony Wroten (knee) was able to practice on Thursday, but is questionable for Friday's game against the Nets.

Wroten was a game-time decision before being downgraded to our for Wednesday's game against the Hawks, so there's a good chance we see him back on the court Friday. We'll update his status after Friday's shootaround, but he should be owned in standard fantasy leagues as he still has value playing behind and alongside Michael Carter-Williams.
Dec 11 - 12:50 PM

Tony Wroten (knee) will not play on Wednesday against the Hawks.

He was a game-time decision for today after being called probable on Monday. Wroten will need two weeks to get back from his knee sprain and does have a chance to play on Friday. Alexey Shved will back up Michael Carter-Williams.
Dec 10 - 6:06 PM

Tony Wroten (knee) has been upgraded to a game-time decision for Wednesday's game vs. the Hawks.

This is excellent news for him, as he is finally getting closer to a return. He should still see big minutes as the 76ers could really use his scoring punch off of the bench. There is also no reason why he and Michael Carter-Williams can't be used together, and owners in standard leagues should pick him up if he is available. Alexey Shved (hip) will play Wednesday, and will be the primary beneficiary if Wroten sits.
Dec 10 - 12:18 PM

Tony Wroten (knee) is doubtful for Wednesday's game against the Hawks.

He is not expected to play in this one and knowing how cautious the 76ers are with injuries owners should have a backup plan ready. Wroten will still likely see big minutes upon his return even with Michael Carter-Williams healthy, but his value will take a hit nonetheless. Check back for official confirmation prior to tip-off and expect to see a lot of Robert Covington off of the bench if Wroten can't go.

Tony Wroten (knee) is doubtful for Wednesday, but is hopeful he'll be able to play Friday vs. the Nets.

It's looking very unlikely that Wroten will be able to return on Wednesday, which means that Michael Carter-Williams will again be getting all the minutes he can handle. It'll also be interesting to see how Wroten affects Robert Covington's value upon his return, as his gunner-mentality could take away from Covington's current 13.3 FGAs per game over the last three. Stay tuned.

Tony Wroten (knee) has been downgraded to doubtful for Wednesday's game against the Hawks.

This comes as a bit of a surprise as Wroten returned to practice on Monday, but Michael Carter-Williams will again play all the minutes he can handle if Wroten is unable to play against Atlanta on Wednesday. Wroten is likely to come off the Sixers' bench upon his return, so fantasy owners in standard leagues can feel free to cut bait for a higher-upside player.
Dec 9 - 1:36 PM

Tony Wroten (knee) is likely to come off the bench in his return on Wednesday.

The 76ers are unlikely to have Alexey Shved (hip), so they're going to need a second-unit point guard. Wroten and Michael Carter-Williams are still expected to see a lot of time together, so the move to the bench shouldn't hurt Wroten much. He is a major negative in percentages and turnovers, so it's tough to roster him in standard leagues.
