08:11 AM ET 09.21 | Fans in Philadelphia may remember the high ankle sprain that Sixers rookie Arnett Moultrie suffered while working out for NBA teams prior to the draft. Turns out that the healing process has actually been a little bit slower than expected this summer. Moultrie came out of his walking boot in July, nearly two months ago, but he hasn't been able to play five-on-five all summer long. ... "We'll have some concerns about his conditioning, the usual things," [Rod Thorn] said, "but I think he's going to be fine." Thorn said Moultrie, who played mostly at 235 pounds last season at Mississippi State University, is "a little heavier" than the Sixers would like. He also said that Moultrie is playing two-on-two and doing some conditioning.

High ankle sprains can linger for an incredibly long time. Because he is now playing 2 on 2, seems like he is finallly getting back.

If I were this guy I would order extra cake just so I didn't have to deal with Philadelphia. That whole arena area in Philly is a pitt. I would hate to play there if I were a professional athlete of any sport.

I just find it difficult to even talk Sixers...........I remember the glory days of Celtic Killer Andrew Toney,Moe, Mo, Doc, Bobby,and Billy C., now we're reduced to talkin about these suspects! To be honest with you I wanted a Knicks thread.
