Ben Simmons out indefinitely with patella subluxation

A subluxation of the patella means that the kneecap popped out of place but returned on its own.
Brown said the Sixers should know within the next 24 hours what the next steps for Simmons will be. The team said in its statement Thursday that treatment options were being considered. Simmons has already been ruled out for Friday's game against the Orlando Magic.
The 76ers spot in the standings is not threatened as they're 9 games clear of Brooklyn or Orlando, but they had been in a position to get ahead of Miami or Indiana in case HCA ever became useful again. Not sure who they'd want to face early in the playoffs. Should be able to skip Bucks and Raptors in the first round, but Boston and Miami are likely opponents however things finish?

If they wanted Indiana, they'd need Miami to fall?

Simmons is a good player but probably regressed more into a role player each year. Might follow an arc like Bogut.

Interesting that they say indefinitely when these can often heal within 4-8weeks

Shams has said he's expected to be day-to-day.

Can't be compared to Bogut yet, Bogut is still the best talent this country produced. Injuries curtailed Boguts career was curtailed by injury but still has great nba, nbl and boomers record.
Hopefully Simmons can get and produce the same career goes forward.

Nostraballmus thinks Indiana would definitely prefer to get TJWarrensBigBabyBunnies the SeventySuxers in the first round.

Why do we have yet another misleading title? Simmons MAY be out for a while, possibly NOT a season ending injury.

Updated title. Indefinite implies unknown amount of time which is roughly what they were suggesting. Might be more alarming in this context so what about "day-to-day"?

Day to day is perfect. We have so many misleading titles here. PLayer X has signed with... No he hasn't there is talk that this may occur.

Simmons to have surgery. 76ers planning to be without him for playoffs.
