Sixers’ Thaddeus Young Out Three Weeks With Hamstring Injury

8492416Philadelphia has been struggling this season. And it’s not going to get easier with these 76ers as they learned that a prominent part of their core will be out for a little bit. Here’s Dei Lynam of Comcast Sportsnet Philly with the report on one of the Sixers’ frontline players.

Sixers forward Thaddeus Young will miss three weeks with a grade one strain of his left hamstring.

Young suffered the injury in the second quarter of Monday’s win over Orlando, and an MRI taken Tuesday morning revealed the severity of the injury.

Young has been a steady force for the Sixers, averaging 14.9 points and 7.4 assists. He had played all 47 games thus far so until this injury, he had been durable the entire year.

Hamstring injuries are tricky and Young is said to be out three weeks. But can they afford to have him out for that long? The Sixers are in the ninth seed and are 21-26. They are three games behind the eighth-seeded Boston Celtics, 24-23. It’s going to be tough for Philly to go on without their second-leading scorer and leading rebounder for a few weeks. And remember that the Sixers are still without Andrew Bynum, their prized acquisition from last summer. Bynum has still not played a single minute with the Sixers but he has been shooting around recently.

Young was drafted 14th overall by the Philadelphia 76ers in the 2007 NBA Draft. He’s been a starter this season after spending the last two years as the Sixers’ main player off the bench. Thad is averaging a career-high in rebounds and is having his second best scoring season (he averaged 15.3 points in the 2008-09 season. He signed a five-year contract extension in December 2011.

The Sixers will take on the Pacers on Wednesday night. That will be the Pacers’ third game in three days.
