                  === Sixers' Young likely out three weeks ===
 
 Philadelphia,  PA (Sports Network) - Philadelphia 76ers forward Thaddeus Young
 is  expected  to miss approximately  three weeks  after being diagnosed with a
 Grade I strain of his left hamstring on Tuesday.
 
 Young  suffered  the injury during  the second quarter of Philadelphia's 78-61
 win over Orlando on Monday.
 
 The  2007  first-round pick has been  putting together one the best seasons of
 his six-year tenure with the Sixers, having averaged 14.9 points and a career-
 high 7.4 rebounds while shooting 52.2 percent from the field over 47 games.
 
 Young's  injury  is  a  further  blow  to  an  already  depleted  Philadelphia
 frontcourt  that  has been without  projected starting center Andrew Bynum all
 season  due to  knee problems.  The team  has been  targeting Bynum  to return
 shortly after the All-Star break.
