Sixers rookie Smith suffers foot injury

August 7 2018 5:40 PM

Philadelphia 76ers rookie Zhaire Smith suffered a foot injury and is now being evaluated, the team confirmed on Tuesday.

The Sixers are no strangers to rookies dealing with injuries. Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons and last year's first-round pick Markelle Fultz, all played scarcely or not at all as rookies.

Smith was injured in a development camp in Las Vegas on Monday and the team are waiting to learn a diagnosis.

The 19-year-old guard was originally selected by the Phoenix Suns with the 16th pick in the 2018 NBA Draft, before being traded to Philadelphia for Mikal Bridges.

Texas Tech product Smith is a lock-down defender and improving offensive talent, who is expected to be a key contributor off the bench this season.
