Sixers: Hawes out for two more weeks, minimum

Sixers: Hawes out for two more weeks, minimum



The 76ers will be without the services of center Spencer Hawes at least for another two weeks or more.

 

Hawes, who has missed 20 games this season and 19 of the last 20 with a strained left Achilles’ tendon, will have the walking boot on his left foot but at the urging of his California specialist, Dr.  Richard Ferkel, will not play for at least another two weeks from this Friday, according to the Sixers.

 

The Sixers, leaders of the Atlantic Division (20-14), play at Detroit on Tuesday.

 

Hawses visited with the Ferkel over the All-Star break.  In his place the Sixers will most likely continue to start rookie Lavoy Allen at Center. The Sixers, losers of five games in a row heading into last  weekend’s All-Star break,  played their last  two games heading into the break without Hawes and starting power forward Elton Brand.

 

Hawes has had X-rays and at least one MRI of his ankle, which came back negative.
