Ben Simmons suffers partial dislocated kneecap
Tough blow for the Philadelphia Sixers.
Ben Simmons hurt his knee during the Sixers-Wizards matchup on Wednesday (Thursday, Manila Time), and it appeared to be worse than the team initially thought.
According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, the MRI revealed that the two-time All-Star is out with a subluxation of the left knee cap.
Sublaxation means that his knee cap suffered a partial dislocation, and now Simmons is looking for treatment options.
The timetable recovery for the 2016 first overall pick remains uncertain, but the Sixers have yet to determine it as well.
Simmons is averaging 16.4 points, 8.0 assists, and 7.8 rebounds this season, and losing him would affect the Sixers’ playoff performance.
