|Ben Simmons: Not mentally ready to play|
Simmons met with the Sixers' medical staff Friday and informed the team he's not mentally ready to play, and his next steps will be determined by medical professionals after being further evaluated, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
The Scoop: Simmons is now officially on the same page with the team regarding the mental concerns, which should hopefully allow the two sides to move forward in finding possible solutions. The 25-year-old was already ruled out for Friday's matchup with the Nets, and he shouldn't be expected to see game action in the near future as he continues to be evaluated. Tyrese Maxey should continue to operate as the 76ers' top point guard in the meantime.
