Bob Cooney is reporting that No. 1 overall pick Ben Simmons has suffered a fracture in his right foot.
The injury was thought to just be a rolled ankle, but evidently it’s much worse. This now makes Simmons doubtful to start the regular season and there is no word yet on his timeline. Robert Covington, Jerryd Bayless and Dario Saric will gain the biggest boost to their values until Simmons can return, but really this will also free up both Nerlens Noel and Jahlil Okafor a little bit, too. We’re going to wait until the next shoe drops to definitively set values for the Sixers.
