Philadelphia 76ers center Montrezl Harrell suffered a torn ACL and torn meniscus during an offseason workout this summer and will be out indefinitely, The Athletic’s Shams Charania reported on Wednesday.
Harrell underwent an MRI to assess some swelling in his right knee, which popped up after the workouts. The MRI later revealed both a torn ACL and meniscus.
It’s not clear exactly what happened, and there remains no timetable, considering that it is an ACL tear. Montrezl Harrell will likely be out for most of if not the entire season.
Harrell signed a one-year, $2.8 million deal with the 76ers just last month. The big man averaged 5.6 points and 2.8 rebounds off the bench last season in Philadelphia. Which, outside of his rookie season were both career lows. The 29-year-old was first selected in the second round of the draft by the Houston Rockets in 2015. Since then, he’s spent time with both the Los Angeles Clippers and Lakers, the Charlotte Hornets and the Washington Wizards before his arrival in the city of brotherly love.
The 76ers fell in the Eastern Conference semifinals for a third straight season. As a result, Doc Rivers was fired and James harden may be on his way out. Per reports, the 76ers will keep Montrezl Harrell on the roster despite his inability to play right now due to his ACL injury.
