The Sixers provided an update on injured forward Elton Brand, who has been sidelined following shoulder surgery:

"Elton Brand had his four week post-operative examination today by Dr. Craig Morgan in Wilmington, Delaware.

Dr. Morgan reports that Brand is no longer required to wear his sling and his rehabilitation will now include more active exercises and gentle, passive range of motion exercises.

Brand will be re-evaluated in two weeks and updates will be distributed accordingly."

Brand played in 29 games for the Sixers before surgery Feb. 9 to repair the torn labrum in his right shoulder.
