Philadelphia, PA ( - Philadelphia 76ers guard Tony Wroten will miss time due to a partial tear of the anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee, the team announced Friday.

Wroten has missed Philadelphia's past five games with the injury and will undergo surgery.

"The best course of action for Tony's basketball career is to repair his ACL surgically," 76ers general manager Sam Hinkie said. "While the precise timing and details of the procedure are still being finalized, what has been determined is that the ACL will need to be surgically repaired."

Wroten averaged 16.9 point and 5.2 assists over 30 games this season, his second with the 76ers.

A timeline for his return will not be specified until the procedure takes place.
