Ben Simmons is progressing through rehab with a lower back nerve impingement and will be re-evaluated in three weeks.
Not the best news in the world but it shouldn’t surprise anyone.
Assuming that the report is accurate and everything goes as planned – this would mean Ben Simmons will be back roughly a week before the NBA Playoffs start on April 18th.
With Joel Embiid and Josh Richardson returning this week – the 76ers are in desperate need of a run to finish out the remaining 18 games this season.
It’s time to handle business until we are back at full strength for the playoffs. As I have always said – you don’t want to face a healthy 76ers team in the playoffs, no matter the seed.
