PHILADELPHIA (AP) -Philadelphia 76ers forward Elton Brand will be sidelined for a month because of a dislocated shoulder.
Team officials say the Sixers' leading scorer has a fracture and tear in his right shoulder but will not need surgery. Brand was hurt Wednesday night in a 93-88 win over Milwaukee.
Brand is averaging 15.9 points and 9.8 rebounds per game this season. He signed a five-year, $80 million free agent contract with the 76ers in July.
A playoff team last season, the 76ers struggled to a 9-14 start before firing coach Maurice Cheeks last week. They are 2-0 under interim coach Tony DiLeo.
