Philadelphia 76ers rookie Jahlil Okafor will require surgery on his right knee and will miss the rest of the season, the team announced Friday.

The team said Okafor has a small tear of the meniscus.

“It will take six weeks before he’s able to get going practicing again and get back on the court, and so based on the [timetable], that is correct [that he’ll miss the rest of the season],” Sixers coach Brett Brown said.
