Ben Simmons, who underwent surgery for his patella subluxation, will not play vs. the Blazers as expected.
Simmons' long-term health is a clear priority for the Blazers and his leaving the bubble all but guarantees that he will not be back in time to play in any of the Sixers' remaining seeding games in the Orlando NBA campus. Al Horford and Shake Milton should stand to benefit the most from this development.
