Simmons spends the majority of his minutes at the point, but has had success at other positions. "Simmons has played and excelled at the point forward and center positions this season," said 76ers' beat writer Keith Pompey. It was reported Simmons (back) is back to full health and will be available to play if or when the 2019-2020 NBA season resumes. The 23-year-old missed the 76ers' last eight games with a lower-back nerve impingement prior to the season suspending March 12th. Simmons is averaging 16.7 points, 7.8 rebounds, 8.2 assists and 2.1 steals across 54 games this year.
