Ben Simmons (illness) has been cleared to play in Monday’s game against the Suns, while T.J. McConnell (shoulder) has been ruled out.
Simmons was always on track to play so it’s no surprise to see him given the green light. McConnell came in as questionable and was a game-time decision, but his shoulder must not be feeling great still so he’s a late scratch. Jerryd Bayless will pick up some minutes in his absence.
Update: T.J. McConnell should be back on Thursday according to coach Brett Brown.
Brett Brown thinks @TJMcConnell will be back on Thursday.
