PHILADELPHIA — No. 1 overall draft pick Ben Simmons says there is no timetable for his return from a broken bone in his right foot.

Simmons attended the Philadelphia 76ers' season opener on Wednesday (Thursday, Manila time) in street clothes and says he's taking his time in the rehabilitation process. Simmons was set to watch the game against Oklahoma City from the locker room.

Simmons says he has not discussed the possibility of sitting out the season.

He says, "I'll come back when I'm ready."

Simmons was injured last month during a training camp scrimmage. The Australian forward played at LSU last season.
