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. Feb 3 - 11:07 PM

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.

Tony Wroten (knee) will not play on Friday against the Pelicans.

He is likely going to miss more time with his second knee sprain of the season. Wroten is also on the trade block, so the 76ers might be extra cautious. With him out, Michael Carter-Williams will get all the minutes he can handle and perhaps the 76ers use newly-signed Larry Drew II. JaKarr Sampson and K.J. McDaniels also benefit.

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

He is not even traveling with the team and it would not be surprising to see him sidelined for even longer. We will provide further details once we know more, but expect Michael Carter-Williams to play all the minutes he can handle for the time being. JaKarr Sampson will also play some minutes at point guard, but he is not a reliable option in almost any league.
Jan 13 - 10:31 PM

Coach Brett Brown said that he didn't think Tony Wroten (knee) would be able to make the trip to Toronto for their game against the Raptors on Wednesday.

He suffered a knee sprain during Tuesday's game and was not able to return. This certainly doesn't sound good and Wroten's owners will have to check back for further updates. Coach Brown said that JaKarr Sampson will take over duties as the backup point guard should Wroten miss time, but he is still not an option in most leagues. Stay tuned.
Jan 13 - 9:33 PM

Tony Wroten will not return to Tuesday's game due to a sprained right knee.

The Sixers were down 20 points in the fourth quarter when he exited, so hopefully his absence is more of a precaution than a necessity. The Sixers play in Toronto on Wednesday and we're listing Wroten questionable for that game -- owners should check for updates after Philly's shootaround.
Jan 13 - 9:02 PM

Tony Wroten scored a team-high 20 points against the Pacers on Saturday with four rebounds, nine assists, two steals and two 3-pointers on 6-of-17 from the field.

He's something special. In fact, over his last 10 games, Wroten has more attempts from beyond halfcourt than he does in the mid-range. As fun as he is to watch, his game just doesn't translate to standard leagues due to poor shooting and too many turnovers. He's solid in points leagues, though. Additionally, the Clippers trading for Austin Rivers might make them less likely to try and trade for Wroten.
Jan 10 - 10:57 PM

Tony Wroten hit just 4-of-19 shots for 12 points and one assist on Wednesday.

He was 0-for-7 from downtown amid rumors that he's going to the Clippers in a trade soon. Whether he's being moved or not, this was an off night for Wroten and he's better than this. But if he does go to the Clippers, his fantasy value will almost certainly take a hit.
