Ben Simmons announced via a video on Tuesday that he has been cleared for 5-on-5 work for the Philadelphia 76ers.
The Australian point forward had a scan two months ago that showed his right foot had not healed enough. Tuesday’s scan apparently went much better.
The 2016 No. 1 overall pick reportedly won’t see time at Summer League, which will probably disappoint some Sixers fans while others will be happy the team is taking their time.
Simmons will apparently handle some point guard duties for Bret Brown next season, and at apparently 7-feet tall, we all can’t wait to see that.
At least we’re getting some injury news out of Philadelphia that’s positive.
