Philadelphia 76ers Offseason: Xavier Silas To Undergo Surgery Following Summer League Injury

Xavier Silas of the Philadelphia 76ers will undergo surgery to repair sinus fractures sustained in the final summer league game, according to a report from Dei Lynam at CSN Philly. Silas was elbowed in the face and sustained a concussion and several sinus fractures.

The young point guard was undrafted in the 2011 NBA Draft, and was waived by the 76ers after an invitation to attend training camp. He stayed active in the NBA Developmental league and was signed by the 76ers late in the 2012 season. He saw action in two playoffs games from the Conference Finals series against the Boston Celtics, but played only two minutes in each game. According to Lynam, he played in all five of the Sixers summer league games, averaging 21.2 minutes, 7.8 points, 3.2 rebounds and 2 assists per game.
