Concern Over Thaddeus Young’s Ankle

The injured ankle in on every Sixer fan’s mind this morning: “Late in the second quarter, Sixers officials distributed a release saying that x-rays were negative for a fracture, that Young would obviously not return (the obviously being my addition, not what they said), and that it was officially diagnosed as an ankle sprain. After the game, the Sixers officials said that Young would receive an MRI sometime on Wednesday to determine if there was any ligament damage. Officially, the Sixers listed him as ‘Day-to-Day.’ This is an educated guess, but I would be surprised if Young played again in the regular season. Why? Here’s Andre Miller’s quote after the game: ‘He’ll probably be out a couple of weeks. Hopefully, he’ll be back by the first game of the playoffs. He had to be helped off, he couldn’t put any weight on it. He needs to get that taken care of and not try to come back too early.’”

    The Sixers need to hope that MRI comes back negative as well.
