Ben Simmons, the top pick in the 2016 draft, will not play this season as he continues his recovery from a fracture in his right foot. But those cheers were fizzled out by the news that Simmons' NBA debut wouldn't come until later in the season because of a broken foot.

Bryan Colangelo says the Sixers "will talk about" having Ben Simmons a part of the Sixers' summer league contingent. "The scan indicated there's not full healing in the bone". "We were not going to put Ben Simmons in a situation where he was at risk for a refracture".

Simmons has been dealing with a fracture in his foot, and a CT scan reported revealed he was not fully healed on Thursday. The 76ers also had Nerlens Noel and Joel Embiid miss what would have been their rookie season with Embiid sitting out a second season before returning this year.

The LSU product was expected to be out three months when the injury first occurred, but he'll wind up missing the entire 2016-17 National Basketball Association season, Colangelo said.

"We continue to monitor the recovery of Ben's injury and are employing a conservative and thoughtful approach to his rehabilitative program, basing his return to full basketball activity on the advice and direction of medical professionals", Colangelo said in a February 17 statement.

Although the future is bright for Philly, they aren't where they want to be and who knows how long it's going to take for Simmons to bounce back from this injury. But it's not three to four months in every case, it's three to four months in most cases.

"He's heartbroken. He wants to play. It's eating him alive, I'm sure".
