Due to swelling in his left elbow, which the Sixers say is not serious, Ben Simmons will miss his first game of the 2017-2018 season tomorrow night against the Orlando Magic. According to Kyle Neubeck, the Sixers say Simmons hurt his elbow at this point of Wednesday’s Trailblazers game:

Thought the view is partially obstructed, it looks like Simmons bangs his elbow when he does his turn around move. After calling for a foul, Simmons seems to be keeping his arm bent before grabbing it in a show of at least discomfort.

The Sixers say Simmons will be re-evaluated on Sunday.
