PHILADELPHIA (CBS/AP) — The Philadelphia 76ers will be without their All-Star point guard for another game. Ben Simmons will miss a second straight game Sunday against the Charlotte Hornets because of a sprained AC joint in his right shoulder.
Simmons was hurt Wednesday when he bumped into Royce O’Neale’s chest while posting up in the first quarter of a 106-104 loss to the Utah Jazz. He didn’t play Friday in a 100-97 loss to the Denver Nuggets.
76ers officials said Simmons would be re-evaluated Monday.
Simmons has played seven games this season and is averaging 13.1 points, 6.9 assists and 5.4 rebounds.
