SIXER POINT GUARD WROTEN WILL KNOW WHEN HIS KNEE IS READY

By Harry Allison

Jahlil Okafor and Nerlens Noel are getting all the attention in Sixers training camp.

And that’s just fine with point guard Tony Wroten, who suffered a partially torn ACL in his right knee last January, and has been doing individual workouts along with playing one-on-one and two-on-two.

“My personal timeline is when I feel like I’m not thinking about it anymore or I have no regrets or I’m back to me,” Wroten said during Monday’s media day. “I want to be able to play how I want to play, not be restricted. That’s why I’m taking it one day at a time and I’m getting there.”

Wroten, who averaged 16.9 ppg last season, wants to make sure that when he does return it’s for good, not a situation in which he’s in and out of the lineup from rushing back.

“I don’t want to come back and be out for two weeks at a time because my knee is swelling up,” he said. “I want it to be when the time is right and I feel 100 percent and I’m ready to dominate.”
