As reported by Keith Pompey at philly.com, Wroten injured his ankle in the second quarter stepping on the foot of Bulls' center Nazr Mohammed. Wroten remained on the floor for several seconds, holding on to his ankle in obvious pain. When play was stopped, Wroten was examined on the floor and helped to the bench by teammates.
Coach Brett Brown wouldn't speculate as to how long Wroten may be out.
"It's unfair for me to guess [how long he will be out]. As I said . . . that's all we can give right now. It looked bad. But in relation to how long, we are just saying day-to-day at this stage."

James Anderson, who also left the game against the Bulls with a knee to the lower back, is expected to get the bulk of the minutes at shooting guard. But if he cannot go, expect Hollis Thompson to start and Elliott Williams to get extended playing time off the bench.
Wroten is in his first season with the 76ers, after a season with the Memphis Grizzlies. He is averaging 13 points and 3.4 rebounds per game this season.
