Former LSU star Ben Simmons breaks bone in right foot

GALLOWAY TOWNSHIP, N.J. (AP) - No. 1 overall pick Ben Simmons broke a bone in his right foot Friday during the Philadelphia 76ers' final training camp scrimmage at Stockton University.

The team said Simmons fractured the fifth metatarsal bone. It was unclear who long he will be sidelined.

The Australian forward played at LSU last season. He missed time early during his stay with the Tigers while waiting for an ankle injury to heal, and also left an NBA Summer League contest in July after suffering cramps in both legs.
