Arnett Moultrie is back on the shelf.
The 76ers power forward is not expected to play until 2014 after undergoing surgery Thursday to repair his left ankle. The 6-foot-10, 245-pounder was hurt while scrimmaging a couple of weeks ago.
This isn't the first time Moultrie was hampered by an ankle injury.
The second-year player missed the Orlando Summer League in 2012 after injuring his ankle during a predraft workout in Sacramento, Calif. Still plagued by the injury in last year's training camp, he was not in shape at the start of the season. In December, he was sent down to the Sioux Falls Skyforce of the NBA Development League for seven games.
