The 76ers will be without guard Tony Wroten for tonight’s game with the Minnesota Timberwolves at the Wells Fargo Center.

Coach Brett Brown said in his pre-game meeting with reporters that Wroten has flu-like symptoms and a little bit of a migraine.

Wroten has been a major offensive contributor, averaging 13.8 points.

This will be the third game this season that Wroten has missed. He was sidelined for consecutive games at Indiana and Orlando on Nov. 23 and 27 with a low back strain.
