All-Star guard Ben Simmons was dealing with a nagging injury and it was a bit of a surprise that it was ruled that he would play in the game considering that it was just a regular-season game.
“That, for me, was as disturbing a memory as it relates to a player that I can think of,” Brown said. “He’s lying on his back, he’s vomiting primarily because of pain and trying to get him back on the plane and build him back up to some level of health where he can play basketball again with us and that timeline was always an interesting one.”
In terms of his rehab, the team gave him a medical pass to get into the team’s facility so he can continue to rehab from the injury.
