Ben Simmons have been doing in on-court drills and working out to get his feet back ready. If I were the 76ers management, I woukd be cautioned about this injury. The 76ers have nothing to win for at this point, being 5.5 games back from a playoff spot.
The 76ers have been struggling with injuries from their past top draft picks. Joel Embiid suffered a foot injury that caused him to sit his whole rookie season. Nerlens Noel, Torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee and Jahlil Okafor torn his cartilage (meniscus) in right knee.
The 76ers have to be cautioned about Ben Simmons return, there’s nothing to lose.
