Sixers Injury Update: Malcolm Thomas expected to have surgery on left knee

By on 11/10/2014 10:30:00 AM

The Philadelphia 76ers fell to 0-7 on the season following a 120-88 blowout loss to the Toronto Raptors. The 76ers were lead by Tony Wroten, who had 18 points and five assists. Now the only NBA team without a win, the 76ers were again without power forward Malcolm Thomas, who is now expected to have surgery on his injured left knee.

I reported yesterday that Thomas, who has been playing with fluid on his left knee for the past week and a half, had an MRI on the knee last Tuesday and was uncertain about his course of treatment.

Keith Pompey, who covers the 76ers for The Philadelphia Inquirer, tweeted the following update on Thomas.
With Thomas out, expect Luc Mbah a Moute and Brandon Davies to see the bulk of the work at power forward.

Thomas, who's played 28 NBA games over the past five seasons, is averaging 4.4 points and 4.6 rebounds in 14.2 minutes per game this season. Thomas has played for the Spurs, Bulls, Warriors, Jazz and 76ers and has career averages of 1.9 points and 2.3 rebounds per game.
