Spencer Hawes won’t be returning to the 76ers lineup anytime soon.
After today’s shootaround the team announced that Hawes would be seeing Dr. Richard Ferkel from the Southern California Orthopedic Institute on Thursday.
Hawes remains out with a sore left Achilles tendon. Initially, the team estimated he would be in a boot for two more weeks, but before Friday's game Hawes said the two-week timetable began when he first went into the boot on Feb 11.
"It's been a frustrating situation, Hawes said. "It will be good to get another opinion and possibly get a realistic time-table."
