CAMDEN, N.J. (AP) Ben Simmons won't make his NBA debut this season.
His surgically repaired right foot hasn't healed sufficiently for the No. 1 overall pick to play in the final 26 games, the team said Friday.
Simmons fractured the fifth metatarsal bone during the final training camp scrimmage in October and hasn't played a game. A CT scan Thursday revealed his foot hasn't fully healed.
