Yet another World Championship injury as Nocioni's Ankle Forces Him To Withdraw
The Philadelphia 76ers announced that due to forward Andres Nocioni's injured left ankle, the team has advised him to withdraw from the upcoming FIBA World Championships, effective immediately.
The MRI of Nocioni's left ankle was reviewed by Dr. Jack McPhilemy of Main Line Health Services, who recommended that Nocioni stop all basketball and impact activity until the team opens Training Camp at the end of September, at which time he will be re-evaluated.
Upon Nocioni's return to Philadelphia, another MRI will be taken of his left ankle.
