Arnett Moultrie says he's "just sick of all the excuses" related to why he's not on the floor

(USA Today)

NEW YORK – The 76ers’ Arnett Moultrie sounded off Monday about the delayed debut to his sophomore season.

Moultrie missed all of training camp and the first two months of the regular season due to rehab related to a surgically repaired right ankle, which he injured in offseason workouts. He first practiced with the Sixers Dec. 31, and has been a participant in on-court activities ever since.

Moultrie rebuffed the reason that’s been given by Sixers coach Brett Brown, who has said the second-year forward remains inactive while getting into basketball shape.

“It’s not my ankle. It’s not my conditioning,” Moultrie said, before the Sixers played the Brooklyn Nets at Barclays Center. “But at this point, I really don’t care. I’m just sick of all the excuses. If it ain’t one thing, it’s another thing.”

When pressed for the specific reason he’s been given for why he’s yet to play, Moultrie declined.

“I’d rather not say,” he said.

The 6-10, 240-pound Moultrie, who was inactive against the Nets, has missed the season’s first 48 games, after averaging 3.7 points and 3.1 rebounds in 47 games as a rookie. The Mississippi State product, who works out in pregame with assistant coach Lloyd Pierce, returned to the locker room Monday with heavy sweat rings around his shirt.

“I’ve been good for the last month,” Moultrie said.
