Philadelphia 76ers rookie forward Ben Simmons suffered a broken right foot in practice on Friday and the team gave no indication of how long he will be out of action.

After inquiries from the Daily News, the Sixers said in a statement that Simmons, the No. 1 pick in June’s NBA draft, suffered a fracture of the fifth metatarsal bone of his right foot.

Simmons rolled his right ankle during the final scrimmage of the team’s training camp at Stockton University.

The Sixers’ statement said, in part, “After receiving an X-ray and MRI of the foot and ankle, the images were reviewed by Sixers Head Physician Dr. Christopher Dodson and Sixers Chief Medical Officer and Co-Chief of Sports Medicine Orthopedics at New York’s Mount Sinai Medical Center Dr. Jonathan Glashow.  Further medical evaluation and treatment options are being considered at this time and additional updates will be provided when appropriate.”
