As reported by Dei Lynam of CSNPhilly.com, the injury to Wroten may not be as bad as initially thought when Wroten went down clutching his ankle. Coach Brett Brown indicated that there wasn't as much swelling as was expected and Wroten isn't in as much pain as expected such a short time following the injury. Those appear to be good signs that Wroten may return sooner than initially thought.

Wroten missed two games earlier this season with a lower-back strain and another two games with flu-like symptoms.
Wroten will most likely be out tomorrow against the Knicks. Assuming he cannot go, expect James Anderson, Elliot Williams and Hollis Thompson to get the bulk of the minutes beside Michael Carter-Williams in the back court.
Wroten is averaging 13 points, 3.4 rebounds and 3.3 assists per game. The second-year guard has seven games of 20 or more points this season, with a high of 24 points against the New Orleans Pelicans on November 29.
