Are the Sixers the unluckiest team in the drafts? Perhaps not history, but if we stick to recent years, the question answers itself: not only have failed to reach number one as they would have liked many times although expressly tanquaron for it, nor are having luck with your choices.

In addition, if not, let us briefly review what has been happening with their recent elections:

  • In 2013, they elected Nerlens Noel; his first full season was lost because of an injury.
    In 2014 they elected Joel Embiid, who has not yet made his debut with the Sixers.
    In 2015 they elected Jahlil Okafor, who had to leave early season, also due to injury.
    And in 2016, finally they had a number one and chose Ben Simmons, who has been injured and is not known when it will be able to debut.

And the injury suffered Ben Simmons, as reported Sixers It is no small thing: the fracture of the fifth metatarsal in his foot. It ‘s not a serious injury, but it is an injury that, for healing, need much time and rest, so that Simmons may be several months off, both as the need to take precautionary.

There are recent examples of players who have suffered the same injury in the NBA. For example, Brook Lopez, who in the 2013-2014 season could hardly play 17 games with the Nets suffer this problem. Also Kevin Durant, the following year, only played 27 games during the regular season because of the same injury that affects Simmons.

So while the Sixers have not officially announced how much downtime expect Simmons need, we can get an idea of the seriousness of the matter. Especially considering that Philadelphia had high hopes for his number one draft pick, in order to start and leave behind the resurgence in recent years tanking premeditated.
