Will we ever see Ben Simmons in an official NBA game this year? Maybe or maybe not, but the latest of the twists in Philly suggests we may see Simmons later rather than sooner.
But maybe he came back too soon.
The first overall pick in last summer’s draft is scheduled to visit the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York as early as Monday to determine if his right foot is fully healed, according to multiple sources.
Sources said that a foot scan on Jan. 23 showed that his foot was not fully healed.
A source reiterated that Simmons’ foot not being fully healed isn’t a result of the on-court drills in which he participates.
How does that even happen? It’s either they used a bogus scan the first time or they just forced the youngster way too soon. It’s either of those two or Ben Simmons is a space cadet.
