No back-to-back games for 76ers Wroten, Marshall

Point guards Tony Wroten and Kendall Marshall won't play on back-to-back nights at least for a short period of time.

Wroten is scheduled to play 16 minutes in Thursday's game against the Nets at  the Barclays Center. He will then miss Friday's matchup against the Pistons at Wells Fargo Center. Meanwhile, Marshall will sit out Thursday's matchup before playing 16 minutes in his Sixers debut Friday.

The Sixers want both players, who are coming off right anterior cruciate ligament tears, to ease back onto the court. Wroten has played in two games after being sidelined since January.

Marshall also has been sidelined since January. The former Buck signed a free-agent deal with the Sixers on Sept. 8.
