Philadelphia 76ers rookie Ben Simmons suffered a fracture in his right foot during a practice on Friday, the team announced in a statement.
“Ben Simmons rolled his right ankle during the final scrimmage of the team’s 2016 Training Camp at Stockton University earlier today,” the statement read. “It was determined that Simmons suffered a fracture of the fifth metatarsal bone of his right foot.”
Simmons, who is Australian and played one year of NCAA basketball at LSU, was the No. 1 overall pick in this year’s draft. At 6-foot-10, he is a gifted passer and has been called the best NBA prospect since Kevin Durant.
No timetable has been given for his return.
