Tony Wroten hurts ankle against Bulls (video)


Philadelphia 76ers guard Tony Wroten left the game against the Chicago Bulls on Saturday night due to an injury to his ankle suffered in the second quarter.

Frank Den of GIFD Sports posted the video (NSFPWCAAI — Not Safe For People Who Cringe At Ankle Injuries):

Wroten played his college ball at Washington, averaging 16 points and five rebounds per game. He was selected as the 25th overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft by the Memphis Grizzlies, but he only played in six games during his rookie season, spending most of the year as a member of the Reno Bighorns in the NBA D-League. He was traded to the Philadelphia 76ers on August 22 and etched his name in the record books by becoming the first player since the NBA-ABA merger in 1976 to record a triple-double in his first career start, posting 18 points, 10 rebounds, and 11 assists in a win over the Houston Rockets.

We’ll keep you posted on his injury status as more information is made available.
