76ers F Muscala out with fractured nose
Philadelphia 76ers reserve big man Mike Muscala will miss at least one week after fracturing his nose during Tuesday's practice.
The team announced the injury on Wednesday and said it occurred during a collision with a teammate. Muscala received six stitches for a cut on his face and will wear a protective mask once he is cleared to return.
Muscala will be re-evaluated in approximately one week.
The 6-foot-11 Muscala will miss at least four games, beginning with Wednesday's game against the Indiana Pacers.
Muscala is averaging 7.4 points and 3.8 rebounds in eight games this season.
The sixth-year-pro was acquired in the offseason from the Atlanta Hawks.
Muscala played five seasons for the Hawks and has averages of 5.4 points and 3.1 rebounds in 251 NBA games (18 starts).
