The Sixers announced today that forward Thaddeus Young would be out "approximately three weeks" with a strained right hamstring.

Young suffered the injury in the second quarter of Monday nights victory against the Magic while diving for a loose ball in front of the Sixers bench and did not return.

The injury comes at a good time with the All-Star break approaching next weekend, the Sixers will be off for 7 days.
