NBA: Summer League-Boston Celtics at Philadelphia 76ers Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

This came out of nowhere: per the Sixers, rookie Zhaire Smith has been recalled from the G-League Delaware Blue Coats and is available to play tonight against the Cavaliers.

After suffering both a broken foot and a serious allergic reaction this summer, Smith played his first professional game with the Blue Coats on March 1st.

It is unclear how much he will play and if this means he will be on the team for the rest of the season.

Stay tuned for more updates.
