76ers' Ben Simmons: Takes part in non-contact workout Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simmons (foot) took part in a controlled, non-contact training session Tuesday that included five-on-zero scripting.

The workouts are similar to what Simmons was able to do prior to the 76ers ruling him out for the season a little less than two weeks ago after he required surgery to insert bone marrow into his fractured right foot. He'll presumably be limited in workouts for the remainder of the season, but the 76ers are hopeful that the No. 1 overall pick will be able to see some action in summer league and receive full clearance for training camp in the fall. The 76ers are grooming Simmons as their long-term solution at point guard, but that won't necessarily preclude them from using their first-round pick on another ball handler in June.

76ers' Ben Simmons: Undergoes minor foot procedure
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simmons underwent a minor procedure Monday to insert bone marrow in his fractured right foot, Bob Cooney of the Philadelphia Daily News reports.

The 76ers announced last week that Simmons wouldn't make his debut in 2016-17 after CT scans showed that his foot hadn't fully healed, but in an effort to speed up his rehab process, he had the procedure to stimulate bone growth and speed up the healing process. Simmons is expected to resume training by the end of the week, though the 76ers will likely be extremely cautious with his activities. The organization remains hopeful that Simmons will be back to full health by the time the summer league arrives, which should provide an opportunity for the 20-year-old to get in some in-game reps before training camp in the fall.

76ers' Ben Simmons: Ruled out for rest of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simmons (foot) was ruled out Friday for the rest of the season, Jake Fischer of Sports Illustrated reports.

A CT scan Thursday revealed that there was still a fracture in Simmons' foot, and the lack of healing will force Simmons to sit out the remainder of what would have been his rookie season. The first overall pick in 2016's draft was expected to see majority of his time at point guard upon returning to the rotation, but with his absence now confirmed, T.J. McConnell and Sergio Rodriguez will continue to shoulder the load at the position down the final stretch of the season. The team is hopeful that Simmons will be able to make an appearance on the summer league team this year. .

76ers' Ben Simmons: Foot may still be fractured
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simmons underwent a CT scan Thursday that revealed that he was still dealing with a fractured right foot, but it's unclear whether it's a new fracture or his existing fracture that's showing up on the scans, John Barchard of SportsRadio 94 WIP reports.

Details remain very scarce, but expect coach Brett Brown to provide a formal update on the No. 1 overall pick's condition when the 76ers conclude their morning shootaround Friday. Brown has previously maintained that he expected Simmons to play at some point after the All-Star break, but if this latest report is correct and the rookie's foot hasn't fully healed as the team had hoped, his chances of suiting up in 2016-17 would drastically diminish.

76ers' Ben Simmons: Will have CT scan Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simmons (foot) was limited to individual work at Wednesday's practice and will undergo a follow-up CT scan Thursday, Tom Moore of the Bucks County Courier Times reports.

Though recent reports suggested that the 76ers may hold Simmons out for the entire season, coach Brett Brown refuted that notion last week, suggesting that the team expects the No. 1 overall pick to make his debut at some point after the All-Star break, though an official timetable hasn't been outlined. Simmons has been limited to nothing more than five-on-zero work since undergoing surgery on his right foot in October, but if the results of the CT scan prove encouraging, the rookie could move on to the next phase of his recovery. Brown has previously stated that Simmons, who is expected to see most of his time at point guard once healthy, will need at least five five-on-five full scrimmages before the team would clear him to play, so once he's able to take contact, it would probably take at least a week or more after that before he makes his NBA debut.
