THE SIXERS' Xavier Silas had successful facial surgery Saturday to fuse several sinus fractures after he was injured in Friday's summer-league finale in Orlando.
Silas took an elbow to the head from teammate Solomon Jones and also suffered a concussion. He went up to block a shot against Detroit and was hit. He fell into a row of chairs courtside.
A spokesman said he had no further information on Silas' status.
In a text message to teammate Evan Turner that Turner posted Sunday on Twitter, Silas wrote, "Feel better. Meds just having me sleeping a lot. Tell them I'm feeling stronger already. Tell em the young snake said that."
