How Much Time Ben Simmons Will Miss After Breaking Foot

Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

The basketball gods hate Philadelphia.

Ben Simmons will miss some time after suffering a fracture in his foot during a 76ers team scrimmage, per reports.

Simmons initally rolled his right ankle during the 76ers training-camp scrimmage on Friday at Stockton University.

The team released this statement:

Philadelphia 76ers forward Ben Simmons rolled his right ankle during the final scrimmage of the team’s 2016 Training Camp at Stockton University earlier today.

After receiving an X-ray and MRI of the foot and ankle, the images were reviewed by Sixers Head Physician Dr. Christopher Dodson and Sixers Chief Medical Officer and Co-Chief of Sports Medicine Orthopedics at New York’s Mount Sinai Medical Center Dr. Jonathan Glashow.

It was determined that Simmons suffered a fracture of the fifth metatarsal bone of his right foot.

Further medical evaluation and treatment options are being considered at this time and additional updates will be provided when appropriate.

Many will point to Simmons putting on 33 pounds as a possible reason for the fracture, but now we can only trust the process.
