Ben Simmons is Questionable for Tomorrow’s Game vs Pistons
After leaving the Sixers win on Saturday night against the Orlando Magic with back tightness, point guard Ben Simmons did not practice on today, and is listed as questionable for tomorrow's match-up in Detroit against the Pistons.
Per NBC Philly Sixers reporter Serena Winters on Twitter:
If Simmons misses the game, Sxiers coach Brett Brown said it is likely that Markelle Fultz would run the point, and J.J. Redick would enter the starting lineup.
Simmons has averaged 12 points, 9.3 rebounds, and 7.7 assists in 28.3 minutes in three games, for the Sixers this season.
Additionally, the Sixers llok like they will be without wing Wilson Chandler who is out because of a hamstring strain and will be reevaluated on Saturday before the game against the Hornets. He has missed the first three games of the season.
Mike Muscala was a full participant at practice today and is questionable for tomorrow’s game in Detroit.
The Sixers-Pistons game can be heard on 97.3 ESPN. Pregame starts at 7pm on Tuesday.
