Sixers’ Randolph to undergo surgery

Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) – Philadelphia 76ers forward Shavlik
Randolph fractured and dislocated his left ankle during practice on Thursday
and will undergo surgery at Penn Presbyterian Medical Center this evening.

The injury occurred when the forward’s foot landed on that of teammate Andre
Iguodala’s.

It is unclear how much time Randolph will miss.

“It’s unfortunate Shav got hurt today,” said 76ers president Billy King. “He
will be missed as he is an integral part of this team, but I am confident that
the rest of the guys will step up in his absence.”

Randolph has averaged 4.5 points and 13.8 minutes in 13 games this season.
