One night after missing a game due to back tightness, Ben Simmons could be in the lineup Wednesday night against the Milwaukee Bucks. As Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports revealed, the star point guard plans to return to action.
Previous statements from Brett Brown hinted that the rest was precautionary, so the news isn’t all that surprising. If he is indeed able to play, Simmons will be vital in containing the backcourt duo of Eric Bledsoe and 2017 Rookie of the Year Malcolm Brogdon. Considering the Sixers are coming off a tough overtime game in Detroit, they can use all the fresh bodies they have.
