Simmons had three points (1-1 FG, 1-1 FT), two assists, and one rebound in three minutes during Sunday's 143-120 win over the Lakers.
Simmons (abdomen) missed Friday's game against the Nuggets but made his 76ers debut in this one. However, the team boasts solid depth along the wing and Simmons isn't much of an outside shooter, so his fit with Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons is questionable at best. As a result, the newly-acquired Simmons shouldn't be expected to log anywhere near as many minutes as he was averaging for the Magic.
Simmons (abdomen) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Lakers.
Even if Simmons gets the green light to play Sunday, it's hardly guaranteed that he'll be summoned from the bench in his 76ers debut. The swingman had struggled to hold down a rotation role with the Magic of late prior to suffering the abdominal injury and getting shipped to Philadelphia on Thursday.
Simmons (abdomen) will not play Friday against the Nuggets, Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Simmons will have to wait at least one more game to make his 76ers debut, as the Houston product, who has missed the last three contests, has been dealing with an abdomen strain for the past week now. Once healthy, Simmons will presumably come off the bench at either the shooting-guard or small-forward positions due to an already stacked 76ers' roster.
Simmons is currently working his way back from an abdominal strain, but once healthy, he should provide the 76ers with much needed depth on the wing. The change of scenery figures to do little for his fantasy value, as the 29-year-old was averaging just 6.9 points, 2.4 rebounds and 2.3 assists in 20.6 minutes prior to being traded.
Simmons (abdomen) is listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Timberwolves.
Simmons has been sidelined for the past three games with an abdominal strain, but the Magic will presumably see what he's able to do at morning shootaround before deciding on his fate for Thursday's contest. Even if he gains clearance to dress for the contest, there's still a chance Simmons doesn't end up playing, as he's a candidate to get dealt to another team prior to Thursday's 3 p.m. EST trade deadline.
