Spencer Hawes

The Philadelphia 76ers will have to continue to play without a reliable center for another few weeks.

Over the All-Star Break, Sixers center Spencer Hawes was examined by Dr. Richard Ferkel of the Southern California Orthopedic Institute.

At the recommendation of Dr. Ferkel, Hawes is no longer wearing the protective boot and he will not play in a game for at least two (2) weeks from today.

Further updates on Hawes’ status will be provided as they become available.

Spencer has played just 14 games for the Sixers this season, averaging 10.5 points, 8.3 rebounds and 2.8 assists, with 56.8 percent shooting.
