Philadelphia 76ers: How far can the Sixers go without Ben Simmons?

After sitting out the first game following the All-Star break due to back tightness, Ben Simmons returned to the floor for the Philadelphia 76ers‘ prime time match up with the Milwaukee Bucks. Five minutes into the game, Simmons re-aggravated his back injury, went to the locker room and never returned.

A few days following the Bucks game, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reported the following news regarding Simmons’ injury.

There has been little optimism in Philadelphia surrounding Simmons’ return to the court due to an unclear timetable and reports of him being emotional following his X-ray.
