PHILADELPHIA -- Philadelphia 76ers forward Elton Brand dislocated his right shoulder in the third quarter of the 76ers' game against Milwaukee on Wednesday night.

Brand had four points and six rebounds. He entered the game averaging 16.4 points.

Brand signed a five-year, $80 million contract on July 9 after seven seasons with the Chicago Bulls and two with the Los Angeles Clippers. He was limited to only eight games last season with the Clippers because of a left Achilles' injury.
