PHILADELPHIA 76ers point guard Ben Simmons will miss Sunday's (AEDT) game against the Orlando Magic with an elbow injury, according to the team.

The Sixers said, after reviewing footage from Wednesday night's 101-81 win over Portland, Simmons appears to have suffered the injury at the 6:22 mark of the fourth quarter.

Star Sixers rookie Ben Simmons has a hurt elbow.

Selected No. 1 overall in the 2016 draft, Simmons missed his first season after he fractured his right foot in a preseason practice.

After missing the entirety of a year ago due to a broken foot, this will be the first game Simmons misses this season.

However, Simmons worked his way back to 100 percent during an arduous rehab process and proclaimed in an August Instagram post his game had improved to the point where he "would have killed the old me on the court". He's averaging 18.5 points, 9.1 rebounds, and 7.7 assists through his first 17 games, and has been a huge reason for the Sixers' surprising 10-7 start to the season.
