Tony Wroten (knee) hinted on his Twitter account that he is targeting a return on Dec. 11 against the Pistons.
76ers head coach Brett Brown recently indicated that Wroten and Kendall Marshall (knee) would return in December, so this looks like a legitimate timetable. Wroten is too inefficient for standard leagues, but owners in points leagues should go ahead and consider stashing him. T.J. McConnell has played well, but Wroten and Marshall could have significant roles after the new year. Nov 24 - 12:12 AM

Tony Wroten (knee) and Kendall Marshall (knee) are not expected to return to the court until the first week of December.

Wroten recently started playing some 5-on-5 and is making great progress, but this report confirms that the 76ers don't want him to return until he is 100 percent. Wroten is worth a stash in points formats, but is too inefficient for standard leagues. T.J. McConnell will continue to hold down the fort in the meantime.
Nov 16 - 9:47 PM

Tony Wroten (knee) said on Monday he's getting closer and is playing 5-on-5 now.

He still doesn't have a timetable to return. Based on previous cases, Wroten is still likely a few weeks from a return and he'll likely have a minutes cap for a couple months, too. He's not worth stashing in nine-cat leagues, though.
Nov 16 - 5:50 PM

Tony Wroten (knee) has been assigned to the 76ers' D-League affiliate.

Wroten is being sent down to rehab, and not to play, and this is all part of a predetermined rehab program. He's hoping to return sometime during the month of November, although December seems like a more likely potential return date. Until he's actually back with the team and playing games, Wroten is best suited for the waiver wire in standard leagues.
Nov 11 - 5:16 PM

Tony Wroten (right knee surgery) is still hoping to return at some point in November.

Although the Sixers have identified December for his return, Wroten is doing everything to beat that timetable. "Obviously, they said December. But I want to come back earlier if it's right. So I'm taking it one day at a time, and hopefully I'll come back sooner," he said. For now, the T.J. McConnell train rolls forward.
Nov 9 - 8:57 AM

Tony Wroten (knee) continues to progress and said that it's possible he could play in November.

Wroten is now able to participate in 2-on-2 drills and he said that his knee feels great, so this is obviously fantastic news for Philly. Kendall Marhsall (knee) is also expected to return in November, so the 76ers will quite a dilemma at point guard moving forward. T.J. McConnell has played well in the starting lineup, so it's unclear how coach Brett Brown will handle this situation. Wroten has a low ceiling in standard leagues, so owners in standard leagues can use a wait-and-see approach.
Nov 7 - 6:52 PM

Tony Wroten (knee) isn't expected to receive a contract extension and is on track to become a restricted free agent next summer.

This isn't really a surprise as the 76ers will want to see how he performs before committing a lot of money to the young guard. As for his timeline to return to the court, Wroten tweeted that he would like to return sometime in November. "I'm trying to come back as soon as I can when I'm ready," Wroten said. "I have been putting in overtime. It's coming soon. My knee just feels great. I just want to be out there and help my team." Wroten is worth stashing in some points leagues, but standard league owners are better off ignoring him until he improves his efficiency.
Nov 1 - 9:18 AM

Tony Wroten tweeted the word 'November' on Friday, as he continues to try and get back on the floor following knee surgery.

This could mean a few different things but hopefully it pushes his timetable forward from where it unofficially has lingered into December. The Sixers could really use competent players right now, but outside of 8-cat leagues and leagues in which percentages and turnovers don't hurt, he's not somebody to aggressively target.
Oct 31 - 12:25 AM

There is a chance Tony Wroten (right knee) could be out until December.

Wroten is still rehabbing his surgically-repaired and looks in danger of missing his targeted early-November return. The Sixers have a crowded backcourt with Kendall Marshall (knee), Pierre Jackson (groin), Isaiah Canaan, and T.J. McConnell all battling for minutes, so fantasy owners in standard leagues can feel free to ignore Wroten on draft day.

Tony Wroten (right knee) was spotted going through sprints with the 76ers on Wednesday.

Wroten isn't likely to play in the 76ers season opener, and coming off a knee injury with four other point guards on the roster is not a great situation for fantasy value. Partner that with the fact that he shot 40.3 percent from the field on 14.5 attempts and 66.7 percent from the stripe last season, and there are not too many reasons to get excited about drafting Wroten in standard leagues.
Oct 14 - 1:44 PM

76ers head coach Brett Brown said that Tony Wroten (right knee) is "every bit of a month away, minimum" from making a return to the court.

That timeline would guarantee that Wroten would miss at least the first few weeks of the regular-season, and there just haven't been many positive reports on Wroten who is returning from an ACL tear. Given that players tend to take at least a year to fully regain their form after suffering a major knee injury, we'd recommend steering clear of Wroten on draft day.
Oct 8 - 6:58 PM

Tony Wroten (knee) does not have a timeline for his return.

"Rehab is going great. I want to be able to play and not worry about it," Wroten said. Without a timeline for his return and with a low ceiling in standard formats, it's hard to find rationale in using one of your draft day selections on TW.
Sep 28 - 12:53 PM

Tony Wroten's (knee) season debut is considered as "fluid" on Wednesday.

He had a partial ACL tear back in January and it was previously reported he'd be ready to start the season. The 76ers point guard position is arguably the most murky situation in all of basketball, but the job should be Wroten's upon his return. Still, he can't be touched in nine-cat leagues and is only a late-round pick in eight-cat formats.
Sep 23 - 2:41 PM

The 76ers reportedly love Tony Wroten's ability to attack the rim, but they want to see him become a better passer and make smarter decisions in order for him to be the point guard of the future in Philly.

This report comes from Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer, so it does carry a lot of weight. Wroten is fully expected to be ready for the start of the season after recovering from a torn ACL, and he is currently the favorite to start on opening night. That being said, the 76ers recently signed Kendall Marshall and Pierre Jackson and Isaiah Canaan are threats as well, so owners in fantasy leagues should use a cautious approach here. Due to his high turnover rate and inefficient shooting, Wroten's ceiling is very low in standard leagues.
Sep 18 - 1:35 PM

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.
