According to the Philadelphia Inquirer’s Sarah Todd, Ben Simmons has been listed as questionable for tomorrow’s game against the Detroit Pistons:
Ben Simmons is questionable for tomorrow’s game (lower back tightness) after not practicing today. #Sixers— Sarah Todd (@NBASarah) October 22, 2018
Ben played just seven minutes in the Sixers’ 116-115 win over the Orlando Magic. Simmons had been having some pre-game back tightness before the Magic game, but it had cleared enough for Ben to feel comfortable playing. However, the tightness flared up over the early course of the game and he would leave without returning.
Hopefully this is nothing more than his body re-adjusting to the NBA grind.
