Sixers' Tony Wroten says he will play vs. OKC


76ers guard Tony Wroten says he will play tonight vs. Oklahoma City.

The Sixers’ sixth man, who sustained a right ankle sprain a week ago today, said he’s been cleared to return to the court after missing the team’s last three games. Wroten went through pregame warmups, testing out the ankle.

“Definitely playing through some (pain),” Wroten said. I’ve been working hard with (head trainer Kevin Johnson) on the rehab. My ankle feels a lot better. … Coming to rehab twice today before the game, it felt good. So I’m definitely going to play.”

Wroten said he did not immediately participate in on-court activity after coming out of his right ankle boot, requiring “a day or two” in between. But he said trainers informed him that, after the third or fourth day, he was healing quicker than anticipated.

As for whether he’s 100 percent, Wroten said he was unsure.

“It’s hard to give it a percentage,” Wroten said. “It’s I’m playing or I’m not playing. It was never going to be, ‘He’s not 100 percent.’”

NOTE: According to the Oklahoman, Thunder forward Kevin Durant will play. Durant, who sprained his right shoulder Wednesday, was a scratch for OKC Friday night at Boston.
