Thaddeus Young estimated to miss three weeks

A 76ers spokesman said that forward Thaddeus Young has a Grade One left hamstring strain and will likely be out approximately three weeks.

Young suffered the injury in Monday’s 78-61 win over the visiting Orlando Magic. He is averaging 14.9 points and 7.4 rebounds.

“Pretty much when I first did it, it felt like a rubber band kind of like snapping a little bit and going back in place,” Young said on Tuesday. “Like the doctor said, three weeks hopefully I will be back.”

Young’s teammates had a predictable reaction to the news.
