76ers' Ben Simmons: Efficient in Wednesday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simmons scored 18 points (9-12 FG) while adding eight rebounds and five assists in 35 minutes during Wednesday's 112-97 loss to the Magic.

With Joel Embiid (knee) sidelined, the Sixers' backcourt took on a bigger share of the scoring load than usual. Simmons has looked good in two games since returning from his own two-game absence due to a sore shoulder, but his inability to consistently hit three-pointers or free throws still puts a damper on his otherwise stellar fantasy contributions.

76ers' Ben Simmons: Fills up box score in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simmons (shoulder) tallied 15 points (7-9 FG, 1-3 FT), six assists, five rebounds, two steals and two blocks across 35 minutes Tuesday in the 76ers' 98-97 win over the Cavaliers.

Simmons didn't face any apparent restrictions in his return to action after missing the 76ers' prior two games with a sprained AC joint in his shoulder. The point guard brought his usual efficiency from the field and filled out the stat sheet nicely in the win, bringing his season averages to 13.4 points, 6.8 assists, 5.4 rebounds and 2.9 steals per game. The 76ers haven't indicated that Simmons will be rested during the second half of their back-to-back set Wednesday in Orlando, so the expectation is he'll start and take on a normal workload.

76ers' Ben Simmons: Cleared to play Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simmons (shoulder) will be available Tuesday against the Cavaliers, Kyle Neubeck of Philly Voice reports.

Simmons missed two games with a sprained AC joint, but he'll make his return to the floor Tuesday night as the Sixers seek their second straight win. This is the first game of a back-to-back, so keep an eye on Simmons' status for Wednesday's game against the Magic.

76ers' Ben Simmons: Likely a game-time call
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simmons (shoulder) remains questionable for Tuesday's game against Cleveland, Kyle Neubeck of Philly Voice reports.

Simmons has missed the last two games with a sprained AC joint, but he'll have a chance to make his return Tuesday on the first night of a home/road back-to-back. The Sixers will likely wait to see how Simmons' responds during warmups, so a final call may not come until close to the 7:00 PM ET tip.

76ers' Ben Simmons: Deemed questionable Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simmons (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Tuesday's contest against Cleveland, Serena Winters of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

Simmons was originally expected to miss Tuesday's matchup due to a right shoulder strain, but is now listed as questionable for the contest. The point guard appears to be progressing rapidly over the past few days and it's reported that the 2016 first-overall pick will be evaluated Tuesday morning to figure out his status against the Cavaliers.

76ers' Ben Simmons: Likely out three games
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simmons (shoulder) will likely miss the next three games with a Grade 1 AC joint sprain in his right shoulder, Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports reports.

An X-ray cleared Simmons of a potentially more serious injury, which is good news, though it sounds like he'll still miss a few games. The point guard has missed just four games in his career to date. In his absence, Raul Neto is a candidate to benefit from increased run, while the rest of the starters will probably absorb most of the usage.

76ers' Ben Simmons: Out Friday with sprained AC joint
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simmons (shoulder) will not play Friday against the Nuggets due to a Grade 1 AC joint sprain in his right shoulder, Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Simmons suffered the injury during Wednesday's game against the Jazz, and while X-rays came back clean, he will miss at least one game as a result. Per Pompey, the point guard will be reevaluated prior to Sunday's game against the Hornets. In the meantime, Raul Neto is a candidate to see increased minutes in his absence Friday.

76ers' Ben Simmons: Out Friday vs. Nuggets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simmons (shoulder) is out for Friday's game against the Nuggets, Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Simmons had an X-ray on his strained AC joint return negative, which was a positive sign. But upon further evaluation, it's been determined that he should sit out Friday's game. It will mark Simmons' first absence of the season and only the fifth missed game of his career. In his absence, Raul Neto is a strong candidate to see an uptick in minutes, while the rest of the starters will probably absorb most of the usage.

76ers' Ben Simmons: X-ray returns negative
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simmons underwent an X-ray on his injured right shoulder, which came back negative, Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports reports. He will undergo more evaluations Thursday.

While it's a good sign that Simmons has avoided any fractures, a timetable for his return remains unclear. More information may emerge after the team continues to evaluate the shoulder. If he has to miss any time, Josh Richardson, Trey Burke and Raul Neto could see expanded roles.

76ers' Ben Simmons: To be re-evaluated Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simmons strained his AC joint and will be re-evaluated Thursday, Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

The initial evaluation of Simmons' injury doesn't make it appear to be overly serious, which is a relief for the 76ers. That said, his status is still up in the air for Friday's tilt with Denver and will depend heavily on the results of tomorrow's evaluation. In the event he's held out, look for Raul Neto and Josh Richardson to share point guard duties with Trey Burke possibly factoring in off the bench.

76ers' Ben Simmons: Won't return Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simmons won't return to Wednesday's game against the Jazz due to soreness in his right shoulder, Derek Bodner of The Athletic reports.

Simmons left Wednesday's game against the Jazz midway through the second quarter in noticeable discomfort. As it stands, the star guard is simply experiencing soreness in his right shoulder, though a more detailed report has yet to be provided by the team. Once Philadelphia's able to conduct tests, a timeline regarding Simmons' return will likely be established. Until then, he can be considered questionable for Friday's tilt with Denver.

76ers' Ben Simmons: Fills stat sheet
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simmons had six points (2-8 FG, 2-2 FT), six assists, five rebounds and seven steals during Philadelphia's 114-109 loss at Phoenix on Monday night.

Simmons had his worst scoring effort of the season, and he hasn't topped the 20-point plateau since he had 24 points during the season opener against Boston. Even if his scoring totals have not been as high as expected, Simmons should retain high upside given his ability to impact the game and fill the stat sheet on both ends of the court. The Sixers will continue their road trip Wednesday at Utah.

76ers' Ben Simmons: Second double-double of 2019-20
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simmons compiled 18 points (7-16 FG, 4-5 FT), 11 rebounds, eight assists and two steals in 36 minutes Saturday in the 76ers' 129-128 win over the Trail Blazers.

Simmons converted a pair of clutch free throws to give the 76ers a one-point lead with 10 seconds left, but the Blazers' Anfernee Simons answered with a three-pointer with just over two seconds remaining to give Portland the lead. The 76ers would have the last laugh, however, as Simmons dished on the next possession to Furkan Korkmaz, who drilled the game-winning three-pointer with 0.4 seconds remaining. Simmons fell short of notching his first triple-double of the season, but upped his averages to 16.8 points, 8.0 assists and 6.4 rebounds with another impressive showing.

76ers' Ben Simmons: Avoids suspension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simmons was not suspended for his role in Wednesday's altercation between Karl-Anthony Towns and Joel Embiid, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

Both Towns and Embiid received two-game suspensions, while Simmons was able to escape punishment as he was viewed as a peacekeeper during the incident. The point guard is averaging 16.5 points, 8.0 assists, 5.3 rebounds and a combined 3.6 blocks/steals across 35.3 minutes per game this season and will look to keep things rolling Saturday in Portland.

76ers' Ben Simmons: Could face league discipline
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simmons scored 16 points (7-13 FG, 2-4 FT) while adding seven assists, three rebounds, three steals and two blocks in 33 minutes during Wednesday's 117-95 win over the Timberwolves.

Six turnovers aside, it was another strong statistical performance for Simmons, but all anyone will remember is his involvement in a third-quarter scuffle between Karl-Anthony Towns and Joel Embiid -- the point guard ended up on Towns' back at the bottom of a scrum, and while neither of them will be making their UFC debuts any time soon, social media did have fun with KAT's apparent "tap out" due to a Simmons chokehold. Unlike the two centers, Simmons remained in the game, but that doesn't guarantee he'll escape discipline from the league once it's reviewed the incident. The 23-year-old is averaging 16.5 points, 8.0 assists, 5.3 boards and 2.8 steals through four games.

76ers' Ben Simmons: Double-double against Detroit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simmons scored 13 points (5-13 FG, 3-7 FT) while adding 10 assists, seven steals and four rebounds in 35 minutes during Saturday's 117-111 win over the Pistons.

It was a typical effort from Simmons, who did everything extremely well except shoot the ball. Given how many established scoring options the Sixers have, even without Joel Embiid (ankle) on the court, the third-year point guard can get away with his occasional bricks if he keeps dishing to the likes of Tobias Harris and Al Horford.

76ers' Ben Simmons: Nears triple-double in opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simmons supplied 24 points (11-16 FG, 2-5 FT), nine assists, and eight rebounds in 35 minutes during Wednesday's 107-93 win over the Celtics.

Simmons was superb and spry, showing no signs of being slowed by the back injury that kept him out of the preseason finale. The third-year point guard carried a heavy load for the 76ers while Joel Embiid was limited by foul trouble (five) and was rested down the stretch given that the game was in hand. If Embiid isn't pushed as much during the regular season, Simmons could be in line to reap the benefits from a fantasy perspective.

76ers' Ben Simmons: Good to go for opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simmons (back) is starting at point guard Wednesday against the Celtics, Gary Washburn of The Boston Globe reports.

As expected, Simmons is good to go for Wednesday's regular-season opener after missing Philadelphia's final preseason game with a back injury. He tallied 39 points, 22 rebounds, 15 assists and five steals in 39 preseason minutes.

October 20, 2019 02:12 PM
76ers' Ben Simmons: Practices fully Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simmons (back) was a full participant in practice Sunday, Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

As expected, Simmons practiced fully Sunday. Simmons' back injury that kept him on the sidelines for the preseason finale doesn't appear to be too serious and he'll likely be good to go for the season opener Wednesday against Boston.

October 18, 2019 01:24 PM
76ers' Ben Simmons: Downgraded to out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Simmons (back) has been downgraded to out for Friday's preseason game against the Wizards, Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Simmons has been nursing some lower-back tightness over the past week and the 76ers will continue to exercise caution with their starting point guard. With that, the next time Simmons will take the court will be for the regular-season opener. For now, Josh Richardson, Shake Milton and Trey Burke are in line to handle point guard duties in Simmons' absence.
