Benjamin David Simmons is a 24-year old Australian professional basketball player for the Philadelphia 76ers of the National Basketball Association.
The Philadelphia 76ers are an American professional basketball team based in the Philadelphia metropolitan area. The 76ers compete in the National Basketball Association as a member of the league’s Eastern Conference Atlantic Division and play at Wells Fargo Center.
The Philadelphia 76ers would have wanted everything to be right in the NBA’s Orlando bubble if they dreamed of winning the title of the tournament. But things aren’t much looking in their hands from their first three games in the tournament till now.
Moreover, despite a 107-98 win over the Washington Wizards on the 6th of August, things got even worse for them. The reason is Ben Simmons’ left knee injury in the third quarter after grabbing an offensive rebound.
Benjamin’s MRI report came clean, and he is expected to be on track very soon.
Benjamin also went through a back injury a while back in the season. He finished with only eight points, four assists, and six rebounds in the whole 22 minutes.
There are only five games left for the Philadelphia 76ers before playoffs begin. It will be tougher for them now to improve their already tumbling team chemistry, with Benjamin’s knee injury as an added disadvantage.
Philadelphia lost their very first game to the Indiana Pacers by the score 127-121 in Orlando. After that, they defeated San Antonio Spurs in a close encounter by the score 132-130. In the game, Benjamin Simmons fouled out. In front of Washington Wizards, the match ended much closer than it was expected. The score was 98-107 when the Philadelphia 76ers defeated Washington Wizards in a close call.
