Ben Simmons is out indefinitely after suffering a knee injury during Wednesday’s game between the Sixers and Wizards. Philadelphia has already clinched a playoff berth, but if Simmons is unavailable to play in the first round, a season that began with championship aspirations may end earlier than expected.
The injury appeared to occur after Simmons grabbed an offensive rebound during the third quarter of the Sixers’ win over the Wizards.
How long will Ben Simmons be out?
The 76ers are evaluating medical options for Simmons, and they hope to avoid a season-ending scope on his knee, according to Wojnarowski.
