Ben Simmons injured his shoulder yesterday.

His outlook?

Serena Winters of NBC Sports Philadelphia:

Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports:

By discussing Simmons’ absence in terms of games rather than weeks, this sounds like good news. The injury could’ve been worse.

Philadelphia’s upcoming schedule:

The 76ers have been relying on Josh Richardson at point guard when Simmons rests. That’s a lot on the plate of Richardson, who’s more of a wing.

Philadelphia also has Raul Neto and Trey Burke. It might be time to trust Neto with a bigger role and maybe even Burke will a role at all.
