Welp. Just when you thought things couldn’t get worse for the Sixers, this happens:
ESPN Sources: Sixers star Ben Simmons is still undergoing treatment and evaluation on his back and there’s expected to be a course of action decided upon soon. This isn’t a day-to-day injury; Simmons will miss time. How much time? That’s still unclear.

This isn’t a day-to-day injury. Great. Swell. Glad the team opted to play Ben Simmons in a nationally-televised game, one in which he was reported to undergo treatment during breaks in his playing time.
The Sixers are 1.5 games behind Miami for the fourth seed in the East. They’ll need Joel Embiid to live up to his self-proclaimed billing as “The Best Player in the World” to avoid starting the postseason on the road.
