LSU began practice on Monday with one notable absence.

Ben Simmons, one of the nation’s top recruits and the potential first overall pick in the 2016 NBA Draft, has suffered a minor ankle injury and is being listed as day-to-day, according to Sheldon Mickles of the Baton Rogue Advocate.

The Tigers do not open the season until Nov. 13 when they host McNeese State, plenty of time to recover from a sore ankle.

Simmons has already suited up for LSU, averaging 20.0 points, 9.0 rebounds, 5.4 assists, 3.6 steals and 2.2 blocks per game during the team’s foreign tour of Australia back in August.
