Brett Brown said that Ben Simmons is now doubtful for tonight’s game against the Pistons.
Simmons wasn’t able to participate in this morning’s shootaround while he also missed practice on Monday. There hasn’t been a medical update so it’s very likely that the Sixers are simply being cautious with their star. Coach Brown said that Markelle Fultz will get the start at point guard on Tuesday but it’s unclear who will join him in the backcourt. J.J. Redick and T.J. McConnell should get the majority of the minutes if Simmons indeed sits out tonight.
