According to reports, Ben Simmons is available for the prime-time match up in Milwaukee against the Bucks. He did not play in their first game back from the All-Star break due to lower back tightness.

Prior to the game against the Brooklyn Nets, Brett Brown talked about how this injury occurred in practice.

The 76ers found a way to grind out a win against the Nets thanks to Joel Embiid's 39 points and dominating effort. Alec Burks was a key contributor as well, but it was obvious the team missed their versatile point guard, Ben Simmons.

This tilt against the Bucks will be a test to see what this squad is really made of. They have clearly struggled on the road with a painful 9-19 record so this is an opportunity to prove they can win in a hostile environment against an extremely talented team.
