Ben Simmons managed to score just eight points (2-10 FG, 4-8 FT, 0-1 3PT) with six rebounds, four assists, two steals and two turnovers in 22 minutes in Wednesday’s 107-98 win over the Wizards prior to exiting the game with a left knee injury.
Philadelphia picked up the win, but Simmons didn’t look great in the first half and then had to leave the game in the second half after suffering an apparent left knee injury. Word from Sixers beat writers at this time is that there is no swelling or pain in his knee, which is great news. You’ll want to check back in on Simmons’ status prior to Friday’s game against Orlando. If he’s ruled out, Joel Embiid and Tobias Harris both become high-usage plays.
