Ben Simmons (back) reportedly out for 76ers at least 2 more weeks

Philadelphia 76ers forward Ben Simmons will be re-evaluated in approximately 2 weeks, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic.

What It Means:

Simmons is dealing with a nerve impingement in his lower back that he suffered during Saturday's game against the Milwaukee Bucks. He will undergo daily treatment and rehab but isn't expected to return in two weeks, per ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. Joel Embiid, Tobias Harris, and Josh Richardson will pick up the slack on offense amongst the 76ers' starters. Raul Neto, Shake Milton, and Alec Burks figure to form a committee at point guard.

Simmons is averaging 43.0 FanDuel points per game this season. Embiid scored a career-high 49 points without Simmons on Sunday, finishing with a season-high 78.3 FanDuel points.
