Sixers advise Nocioni to withdraw from World Championships

The Philadelphia 76ers have advised forward Andres Nocioni to withdraw from the upcoming FIBA World Championships due to his injured left ankle.

An MRI of Nocioni's left ankle was reviewed by Dr. Jack McPhilemy of Main Line Health Services, who recommended that Nocioni stop all basketball and impact activity until the team opens Training Camp at the end of September, at which time he will be re-evaluated.

Upon Nocioni's return to Philadelphia, another MRI will be taken of his left ankle.
