Ben Simmons did not take part in a scheduled individual workout at the Philadelphia 76ers’ practice facility Thursday, sources told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.
It is unclear whether Simmons, who was suspended by the 76ers for Wednesday’s season-opening, 117-97 win over the New Orleans Pelicans for conduct detrimental to the team, will play Friday against the Brooklyn Nets.
Sources told ESPN that Simmons arrived at and left the team’s practice facility Thursday without participating in the planned workout.

The 76ers did not practice Thursday, and Simmons has yet to fully engage in a team practice since reporting last week. The 76ers have fined Simmons more than $1.4 million for his absence from four preseason games and levied numerous fines for missed practices, on-court workouts and meetings, sources told Wojnarowski.
