Ben Simmons Out For The Year, Sad Scene For Philly


Let The Process continue. 

Without Hinkie, things looked brighter at some points for the young Sixers team. With the help of Joel Embiid’s surprisingly good play, and the eventual return of number one pick Ben Simmons, it looked like Philly could have been a playoff team this year. Then, the strings unraveled. 

Simmons, who had been expected to play this season as Philly was “slowly building him up very cautiously to a point where we can welcome him back legitimately to the team,” according to Sixers’ coach Brett Brown, will not be playing at all this season according to sources. 

Today, Bob Cooney from the Philadelphia Daily News announced that according to the Sixers general manager Bryan Colangelo, Ben Simmons is out for the season (although he hasn’t played in any of Philly’s 56 games yet) because his foot hasn’t fully healed. 

It seems like Simmons (like half of the team’s first round draft picks lately) will make his NBA game debut next season.

The Sixers’ woes continue.

Embiid was revealed to have a slightly torn meniscus a couple weeks ago, forcing him to miss events at All Star weekend. He is also currently listed as doubtful, though he hopes to play, according to Jessica Camerato of CSN Philadelphia.
