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?
