GALLOWAY, N.J. -- Jahlil Okafor experienced some right knee soreness and did not participate in the 76ers' training-camp scrimmage on Wednesday. He's listed as day-to-day.
The 6-foot-11, 257-pound center had season-ending surgery on March 22 to repair the meniscus in his right knee. The injury cost the NBA all-rookie selection the final 23 games of the season.
The Sixers were being extra cautious Wednesday at Stockton University. Okafor worked with head strength and conditioning coach Todd Wright after going through an individualized portion of practice.
He said the knee soreness was nowhere close to how it felt last season.
"They had me focus on low management," he said. "So they told me to relax once I did what they wanted me to do today. … But I felt fine. I will be good tomorrow."
Okafor said he was told to take it easy because this was the Sixers' third practice in two days. The Sixers had morning and evening practices Tuesday.
