76ers 1st Overall Draft Pick Ben Simmons Has Fracture in Right Foot
The Philadelphia 76ers are cursed.
During the final scrimmage of the 76ers’ 2016 Training Camp at Stockton University on Friday, #1 overall draft pick Ben Simmons rolled his right ankle.
The results he got from the x-rays and MRI were not good news for the rookie.
“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.”
