The 76ers confirmed today that forward Thaddeus Young (fractured right thumb) will miss the remainder of the 2009-2010 season, which ends a week from today at the Orlando Magic.

The Sixers took an x-ray last night and said the injury hadn't sufficiently healed to allow Young to return.

"While Thaddeus did everything asked of him in an attempt to return to action this season, we feel it necessary to take the appropriate precautions to allow this injury to heal properly," said Sixers President and General Manager Ed Stefanski in a statement.

The Sixers play at the Miami Heat tonight.
