Sixers medical update from… the Sixers:

I’m not a doctor, but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night, and a “subluxation” is when the knee cap pops out of the groove and then slides back in. Sounds painful.

Brett Brown did not give a timeline for Simmons’ return, which is not surprising, but also not assuring.

“This one stings, for sure.” said Brown a short time ago, explaining that he was “numb” to the latest injury blow to his team.

A brief Googling suggests that Patellar Subluxation is not typically treated with surgery, but instead with a combination of rest/ice/compression/elevation (RICE), plus medication, physical therapy, and crutches or a cane to take weight off the knee.

All we really know right now is that Simmons is listed as OUT.
