The 76ers said Zhaire Smith had a thoracoscopy at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital on Wednesday. A thoracoscopy is an examination of the chest cavity by way of a scope.
All of the tests came back negative.
He received the scope due to an allergic reaction to something he ate earlier this week. As of Thursday morning, Smith was still at Jefferson Hospital.
The rookie shooting guard is sidelined with an acute Jones fracture of the fifth metatarsal in the left foot. He is expected to return from the foot injury in December.
He averaged 11.3 points, 5.0 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 1.1 blocks and 1.1 steals as a power forward in his lone season at Texas Tech. He was named to the all-Big 12 newcomer team and to the conference's all-defensive team.
Unfortunately for the Sixers, he joins a list of recent players to miss at least a portion of their rookie seasons with injuries. The most notable are Markelle Fultz, Ben Simmons (entire season), Jahlil Okafor, Joel Embiid (first two seasons), Nerlens Noel (entire season), and Furkan Korkmaz.
