PHILADELPHIA: Philadelphia 76ers first-round pick Zhaire Smith suffered a left foot injury at a development camp in Las Vegas on Monday, the team announced on Tuesday.

Smith returned to Philadelphia for further examination. A diagnosis or potential timetable regarding the injury was not announced.

Smith was the 16th overall pick in this year’s NBA draft. The 19-year-old guard averaged 11.3 points and five rebounds in his lone season at Texas Tech.

The development camp is run by former Pitt basketball coach Tim Grgurich, who has served as a consultant for several NBA teams.
