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.
