Here's What LeBron James Had to Say on Ben Simmons' Injury (Video)

Here’s hoping we see Ben Simmons in 90 days, and not next year. The Philadelphia 76ers star rookie broke a bone in his foot last Friday, and LeBron James plans to be there for his friend and business partner.

Simmons' mentor said that Simmons will eventually show why he was the top pick in the draft.

“It’s like, ‘Damn.’ That’s the first thing that came to my mind and knowing that’s a very delicate injury, I don’t know the severity of it but I heard 3-4 months,” James said Monday following a Cleveland Cavaliers practice. “I know he’s getting a MRI and more tests today to see exactly (the prognosis). But he’ll be fine. He’s a young guy.

“He’s got to make sure he’s patient and not get frustrated with the process because obviously I know I would want to get on the floor. But he has a long career in front of him and he just has to be patient, let the foot heal and when he gets back on the floor then he’ll show why he’s the No. 1 pick.”

James says he’ll stay in Simmons’ ear while the youngster tries to overcome his first NBA setback.
