Simons suffered a Grade 1 right ankle sprain during Tuesday's summer league loss to the Jazz, Peter Socotch of NBC Sports Northwest reports. He finished the game with 35 points (13-18 FG, 6-7 3Pt, 3-3 FT), six rebounds, two assists and two steals across 30 minutes.
Simons already had X-rays come back negative, so he appears to have avoided a more serious ankle injury. The 20-year-old has no official timetable for his return, but the team is likely to remain cautious with their 2018 first-round pick. Jul 09 10:36 pm (EST)
