PHILADELPHIA (AP) _ Philadelphia 76ers president Pat Croce, injured in a motorcycle accident June 17, is scheduled to be released from the hospital Tuesday.

Croce plans to hold a brief news conference around 10 a.m. as he leaves the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, team spokesman Rob Wilson said.

Croce underwent several operations for multiple fractures of the left leg following a crash that cut short a planned cross country motorcycle ride.

The Sixers executive pulled to the side of Route 55 in Deptford, N.J., during a rain storm when another motorcycle collided with his bike. Several motorcyclists embarked on the trip together.

The bikers had just set out from Croce's Ocean City home on what they envisioned as a coast-to-coast trip lasting about a week. None of the group continued on the trip after the accident.
