Arnett Moultrie To Miss Several Months After Ankle Surgery

Philadelphia 76ers' forward Arnett Moultrie will miss several months after undergoing ankle surgery earlier this week.

Just prior to the start of training camp, the Philadelphia 76ers announced that power forward Arnett Moultrie will be sidelined for several months after injuring the medial malleolus of his left ankle last week.

Moultrie underwent surgery on the ankle on September 26, and isn't expected to return to the team until early 2014. In 47 games last year, the 6'10" Moultrie averaged 3.7 points and 3.1 rebounds in 11.5 minutes per game.

It should be noted that the 22-year-old Moultrie sprained the same ankle during a pre-draft workout in the summer of 2012, and that injury caused him to miss the Orlando Summer League that season.

In other injury news, the Sixers also announced on Friday that center Kwame Brown strained his left hamstring during off-season workouts and is currently seeking a second opinion. During the 2012-13 season, Brown averaged 1.9 points and 3.4 rebounds while appearing in 22 games.

UPDATE: Our very own Jake Pavorsky was told earlier this week that Moultrie had been seen in a walking boot recently.
