OKLAHOMA CITY – 76ers center Jahlil Okafor is questionable to play Wednesday night against the Oklahoma City Thunder at the Chesapeake Energy Arena.
"He looked ok but it still doesn't take him out of the questionable category," coach Brett Brown said following Wednesday morning's shootaround. "We'll be able to share what's going on better before the game tonight. Get him a real good workout and give everybody information after that. "
Okafor missed Monday’s road game against the Orlando Magic and seven overall because of right knee soreness. Monday’s inactivity came after the second-year veteran was unable to compete in the second half of Sunday’s home game against the Boston Celtics.
He has been dealing with the knee soreness since having surgery on March 22, 2016 to repair the meniscus in the knee. The injury cost the NBA all-rookie pick the final 23 games of the season.
