The saga surrounding Ben Simmons and the Philadelphia 76ers continues on as the team does their best to try and keep him engaged and get him back with the team sooner rather than later.
Per ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne:
There’s been frustration mounting, according to people close to the situation, that Ben has not been accepting any of the help the team has offered him in terms of helping him with his mental readiness. He has been working with mental health professionals through the Players Association, but thus far I’m told he hasn’t really kept the team in the loop on that and there’s frustration mounting there that they want to know, okay, you need to get mentally ready to play, but so far he’s just an individual work with some of their position coaches. He hasn’t been back in with a team and he’s not providing the team with any updates on what he’s doing to get back and get himself back with the team and in participating in team activitythere’s no timeline.
