According to Yahoo! Sports’ Chris Haynes, Ben Simmons plans to play in tonight’s game vs. the Milwaukee Bucks:
Simmons, 22, is expected to go through a pregame workout before making a definitive decision, but the intention is for him to rejoin the starting lineup against the Bucks , sources said.
This is good news because without Simmons, the Sixers would be hard pressed to defeat the Bucks, as the Sixers already have a few things going against them:
- The Sixers are away
- The Sixers are on a back-to-back
- The first leg of the back-to-back (@ DET) went to overtime
- The Bucks have Giannis Antetokounmpo
- Ben Simmons is one of only two Sixers that can adequately defend Giannis
Call your bookie, tell them you didn’t mean to send that Bucks text earlier.
