Article Summary:

The team has offered their support and resources to the former first overall pick out of LSU. The Melbourne native was reportedly dealing with back tightness as well, an issue that has mostly resolved after treatment with team staff.

Per ESPN:

“The Sixers remain eager to help Simmons address his mental readiness so he can return to the team. There’s uncertainty whether he’s progressing with that same objective, sources said.

Sources close to Simmons told ESPN they expect to provide the team with updates on his progress once he is comfortable doing so. Then Ben confided to team leadership and teammates he was not mentally ready to play and so the team stopped fining him. Simmons continued to seek help away from the team but hasn’t provided details on that process; at least not to a degree the team feels comfortable with.
