The Philadelphia 76ers will be without one of their top scorers until at least December, it was revealed on Thursday.

According to head coach Brett Brown, Tony Wroten is out until December, perhaps even longer, still recovering from ACL surgery.

Wroten had season ending surgery on a partially torn ACL last February and has been sidelined ever since. The original diagnosis had Wroten to be ready by the start of the season at the end of the month.

Wroten averaged 16.9 points along with 5.2 assists per game in 30 games with the team last season before injuring the knee in a game against the Atlanta Hawks.

Wroten was thought to be emerging as a key contributor with the Sixers who are in desperate need of stability at the point guard position.

It was also revealed today that point guard Kendall Marshall is "a ways away" recovering from his ACL injury.
