Sixers forward Elton Brand is expected to miss a month after an MRI exam of his dislocated right shoulder revealed a fracture and a tear of the labrum.
Sixers team physician Jack McPhilemy does not believe the injury will require surgery at this time.
"It's unfortunate that this happened, but we're starting rehab right away and I'm going to do everything I can to get back as soon as possible," Brand said in a statement. "While I'm disappointed that I can't be on the court, during this time I'm going to continue to support my teammates and the coaches in any way they need me."
Brand was injured in the third quarter last night against Milwaukee. He had an MRI exam after the game.
Brand left the game with 7:23 remaining in the third quarter. He got caught on a pump fake and flipped over the Bucks' Luc Mbah a Moute and landed awkwardly on the floor as both men hit the floor. Brand got up and went directly to the locker room. The Sixers announced the injury a few minutes later.
