Don’t expect to see Ben Simmons make his Philadelphia debut


We all know the Sixers will host the Brooklyn Nets next Thursday, March 10 at the Wells Fargo Center, but don’t expect to see Ben Simmons play in the game.

According to ESPN NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski, Simmons won’t be making his Philadelphia debut, but he could play there if he makes his debut before March 10.

“I know it won’t be Ben Simmons’ debut,” Woj explained. “They wouldn’t put him in this game as their first game.”

Woj explained that Simmons still hasn’t hit the throttle in practice, doing more individual drills since the Brooklyn trade.

While Nets general manager Sean Marks has said he hopes Simmons can return this week, it looks like that could be in jeopardy now. According to Shams Chania of AthleticismSimmons is now struggling with back pain that could prevent him from returning this week.

If Simmons isn’t able to return to the court in any of Brooklyn’s five games before March 10, that game in Philadelphia wouldn’t be his first game with his new team.
