Philadelphia needs some reinforcements, and it sounds like they'll be coming in the near future. After Monday's loss to the Timberwolves, point guard Tony Wroten announced what looks to be his season debut date on Twitter:

The Sixers play the Detroit Pistons at home on December 11, before embarking on a three-game road trip. Wroten has not played since partially tearing his right ACL back in January, and had surgery in February. He had previously torn the same ACL during a football game in his junior year of high school.

Prior to being injured, Wroten appeared in 30 games for the Sixers in the 2014-15 season, averaging a career high 16.9 points on 40.3% shooting from the floor.

Kendall Marshall, who also tore the ACL in his right knee in January, is slated to return around the beginning of December as well.
