Ben Simmons To Undergo Surgery On Left Knee 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Sat Aug 8, 2020 6:10 pm

Ben Simmons will have surgery on his left knee to remove "loose body," reported Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.


Simmons will leave the bubble for the surgery.


Simmons was previously diagnosed with a subluxation of his left knee cap.

lol, not ruled out for the season? If they care anything about this kid of his future they wouldn't risk having him play high volume minutes in the playoffs coming off knee surgery.

I read somewhere that their gonna play Embiid and Horford together now. I think they should instead go with 4 shooters around Embiid instead honestly.

It's time for Philly to experiment, their playing with house money now.

I don't understand your comment. I don't want him to rush back and possibly get hurt in the playoffs. On top of that they have a very short turn around before next season starts. I wouldn't risk his long term health for a sprint finish in the bubble.
