Report: Ben Simmons to Have Surgery Next Week
Now that we know Ben Simmons has a fractured fifth metatarsal in his right foot, what's the next step?
According to ESPN's Mark Stein, Simmons will undergo surgery next week, noting that the injury is an "acute injury", meaning it is not related to him adding over 30 pounds of muscle as some had speculated.
With that news, the anticipation is that Simmons will be out awhile, with a big concern for re-injuring the foot. Many players have has this injury, and healed from it, but there is a decent chance for re-injury.
