Sixers rookie Ben Simmons rolled his ankle in Friday’s scrimmage and will undergo a precautionary scan, according to ESPN’s Marc Stein.
The Sixers are just being cautious with their No. 1 overall pick. Simmons’ status for the team’s preseason opener will remain up in the air until the results of the scan comes back. The front runner for ROY will have ample opportunity to fill up the stat sheet for the Sixers this year, especially with his ability to stay on the floor by playing multiple positions.
The Sixers say ROY favorite Ben Simmons will have a precautionary scan on his right ankle after rolling it late in a camp scrimmage Friday.
