Simmons scored 11 points (5-9 FG, 0-1 3PT, 1-3 FT) to go along four rebounds, four assists and two steals across 21 minutes in Monday's loss to the Pistons. Simmons picked up two fouls within the first five minutes of game action and then immediately picked up a third foul after re-entering the game early in the second quarter. He was limited to a season-low 21 minutes as a result, the first time he has failed to play at least 30 minutes since Dec. 31. Positively, Simmons still managed a pair of steals, his fourth consecutive game with multiple swipes.
Simmons posted 20 points (5-7 FG, 10-12 FT), nine rebounds, seven assists, three steals and a block across 34 minutes in Saturday's 114-110 win over the Pistons. The versatile point guard provided value across the board with another complete performance, ending just one rebound and three assists shy of a triple-double. Simmons' 20-point performance was his season-high mark thus far, and it was aided by some unusually strong shooting from the free-throw line. The 24-year-old has gotten off to a disappointing start to 2020-21, but his season-long average of 12.9 points per game should gradually rise as his field-goal percentage (52.3 percent) aligns closer with his career rate (55.8 percent).
Simmons (undisclosed) is active and starting Saturday against the Pistons. Coach Doc Rivers said earlier in the day the 24-year-old's status was "up in the air" due to some unspecified minor injuries, but the point guard is available for Saturday's matchup with Detroit. Simmons had 15 points (7-10 FG, 1-3 FT), 11 assists, three rebounds, two steals and one block in 36 minutes during Friday's win over Boston.
Simmons is dealing with an undisclosed injury and coach Doc Rivers described his status as "a bit up in the air" ahead of Saturday's game against the Pistons, Kyle Neubeck of PhillyVoice.com reports. Simmons has some "knocks," which the 76ers failed to list on the injury report and that coach Rivers is surprisingly bringing up with an hour and half before tipoff. It's tough to know what to make of this situation, but Shake Milton would benefit if Simmons sits out.
Simmons recorded 15 points (7-10 FG, 1-3 FT), 11 assists, three rebounds, two steals and one block in a 122-110 win Friday versus Boston. The Sixers established a safe 91-80 lead after three quarters in which Simmons was rather quiet. He helped finish Boston off by recording 11 points (5-7 FG, 1-1 FT) and three assists during the final quarter. Simmons' production in this ongoing season has been rather underwhelming, but he should be fine if able to replicate his fourth-quarter magic Friday across an entire game.
