PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Ben Simmons will miss another three weeks to rehab his lower back injury, the Sixers announced Wednesday. Simmons suffered a lower back nerve impingement Feb. 22 in the first quarter against the Milwaukee Bucks.
The Sixers says Simmons is receiving treatment and gradually increasing his activity through strength and conditioning.
3 weeks from today puts us at April 1st for another Simmons update. Only 7 regular season games left at that point.
