Ben Simmons' NBA debut has been put on hold following a broken bone in his right foot.

There is a distinct possibility that the Australian could be out of action until 2017 in what is a huge blow to the hopes of the Philadelphia 76ers as they look to move away from the bottom of the Eastern Conference. 

Despite his absence, many experts are tipping him to remain in contention for the Rookie of the Year award despite missing what could turn out to be 30 games. 

In the NBA, there is a fine line between success and The Ringer writer Kevin O'Connor believes Simmons' shooting is all wrong. 

This is not to say he isn't a fantastic player, but, according to O'Connor, he could be even better if he shot off the correct hand. 

Jump shooting has always been the major problem with Simmons, and he believes the youngster's shot would be a lot smoother if he shot with his right hand. The reason being, he does almost everything else with his right hand but shoots the jumper with his left. 

In fact, he is so sure that Simmons is making a mistake that he wrote: "I believe Ben Simmons is shooting with the wrong hand, and I’ve never been more sure of anything in my entire life."
