With just one game left in the Sixers season, they finally got some good news on the injury front – Ben Simmons’ foot has reportedly fully healed and he’s been cleared for 5-on-5 work.

Simmons announced via this video from UNINTERRUPTED on Twitter that after his foot scan, he was given the green check.

While the rookie will not play in the season finale, he is ready to begin full contact workouts.

Sixers coach Brett Brown has indicated that he thinks it “would be good” for Simmons to play in the summer league. However, it looks doubtful that he will play in the Sixers summer league games this year, meaning he won’t step on a NBA court until next year’s preseason.

The 6-foot-10, 250, first overall pick is expected to play point guard for the 76ers next season. He averaged 8.0 points, 7.5 rebounds and 5.5 assists in two Salt Lake City Summer League games. In in four Las Vegas summer league games, Simmons averaged 12.3 points, 7.7 rebounds and 5.5 assists.
