Ben Simmons (knee) probable for 76ers Tuesday

Philadelphia 76ers forward Ben Simmons (left knee) is probable to play Tuesday versus the Miami Heat.

What It Means:

Simmons is expected to return from his two-game absence and Joel Embiid (back) is also probable for the second leg of the 76ers' back-to-back. Simmons' return will likely lead to less usage for Tyrese Maxey and Isaiah Joe. The 76ers will be without Tobias Harris, Seth Curry, Shake Milton, and others Tuesday due to health and safety protocols.

numberFire's models project Simmons for 14.3 points, 7.7 rebounds, 7.1 assists, and 1.7 steals on Tuesday versus the Heat.
