LAS VEGAS — Landry Shamet suffered a game-ending sprained right ankle in Friday night's NBA Summer League opener against the Boston Celtics.
The 76ers rookie had six points on 2-for-5 shooting – all three-pointers – in 12 minutes, 3 seconds before suffering the injury. He also had one assist and one personal foul. The Sixers said he did not have the ankle X-rayed.
The point guard was selected with the 26th overall pick in the June 21 NBA draft. The Sixers wanted to see the former Wichita State standout play primarily off the ball in the summer league. He was starting to find his groove and get more comfortable as the game progressed.
