Ben Simmons, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2016 NBA Draft and former LSU forward, has a fracture in his right foot, according to multiple sources. Per ESPN:

Simmons was injured Friday during the final training camp scrimmage at Stockton University in New Jersey.

The Sixers said Simmons rolled an ankle, and X-rays and an MRI revealed a fractured fifth metatarsal bone.

In almost all cases, the fracture of the foot's fifth metatarsal is known as a Jones fracture, according to ESPN medical analyst Dr. Mark Adickes. Athletes with this injury typically undergo surgery.

The estimated time frame for a full recovery from surgery is around eight weeks, acccording to Dr. Adickes.
