Wroten to play against OKC

Tony Wroten will play against the Oklahoma City Thunder Saturday night at the Wells Fargo Center.

The 76ers backup point guard and sixth man missed the last three games with a right sprained ankle.

“I’ve been working hard with [Sixers head athletic trainer Kevin Johnson] in the rehab,” Wroten said before the game. “My ankle feels a lot better.  It’s already 24 hours from yesterday. Coming in and rehabbed this morning, then coming in early before the game helped a lot.”

He suffered the injury early in the second quarter of Jan. 15’s 103-78 setback at the Chicago Bulls.

Wroten is averaging 13 points, 3.4 rebounds, 3.3 assists this seasons.
