Sixers Announce Ben Simmons Will Miss Remainder Of The Season

Trade deadline looming, Sixers cherish what could be final day together

John Barchard of Sports Radio 94WIP said that the remainder of Simmons' season was "in doubt" before reporting this morning that Bryan Colangelo is going to sit the Austrailian for the rest of the year.

Simmons fractured his foot on September 30, the final day of pre-season training camp.

The Philadelphia 76ers announced Friday that rookie Ben Simmons - the No. 1 overall pick in last year's National Basketball Association draft - will not play this season.

"We've always anticipated that there would be an opportunity for him to play, hopefully this season", Colangelo said via ESPN.

Drug OD deaths almost tripled since 1999, CDC says
While all age groups saw increases in death, the 55-to-64 group saw the biggest increase, with a five-fold jump since 1999. The suicide rate is 13.4 deaths per 100,000 and the rate of deaths from auto accidents is 11.1 deaths per 100,000 people.

Simmons had begun practicing in December and competed in 5-on-0 drills for the first time in mid-January but a CT scan this week revealed that the injury is not fully healed. That's the bad news.

"I have always known that there was a desire to get him back on the court when healthy", Colangelo said.

The last top pick to miss his entire first season was Los Angeles Clippers star Blake Griffin in 2009-10. "It's not the way you want to start your career, but it happens". He underwent surgery in early October to fix what is termed an acute Jones fracture in his fifth metatarsal in his right foot. Embiid has been sidelined for almost a month with a knee injury, the 76ers traded forward Nerlens Noel in a move met with disapproval from many fans and reporters criticized Colangelo for a lack of transparency.
