Article Summary:

Recently the 76ers started fining Simmons again until he worked with a team recommended specialist on his mental health issues and took part in other basketball-related obligations. Simmons complied with part of that and did meet with a team recommended mental health professional he is still not around the team in a meaningful way.

That led the 76ers to fine Simmons for not joining the team on its current six-game road trip, even if he wasn’t going to play, reports Shams Charania of The Athletic.

Philadelphia wants to see Simmons working toward a return to the court, meeting with their mental health people and taking steps that would have him playing again as soon as possible.
