Ben Simmons May Be Ready After All-Star Game

Sixers rookie Ben Simmons could be ready for his first NBA game right after the All-Star break, according to Chris Haynes of

A source tells Haynes that the No. 1 pick in the 2016 draft has a chance to be on the court by late February if there are no more setbacks in his rehab from foot surgery. Simmons fractured the fifth metatarsal bone in his right foot in training camp, and the Sixers are being careful about rushing his recovery. Sources say Simmons’ foot has completely healed, but there is still a chance he could be held out for the rest of the season as a precaution.

At this stage of rehab, Simmons is working on his conditioning and stamina. He participated in five-on-five drills for the first time last week, and the Sixers are handling his eventual return in a “cautionary, delicate fashion,” according to Haynes.

    Embiid is looking like a bonafide superstar. He’s also the funniest guy in pro sports. He was worth the wait. Other top picks – Noel

    okafor or Noel have to kick be moved. If cheap send them to the Lakers, preferably Noel

    Send Okafor to Chicago. We will give you Dougie McDermott. He is also a porocess so he will fit right in.
