Simmons to have surgery

Philadelphia 76ers All-Star Ben Simmons will have surgery on his left knee, multiple outlets reported on Saturday. The 24-year-old guard/forward will leave the NBA bubble for a procedure to remove a loose body from the knee, ESPN reported. A timetable for his recovery and information regarding his potential return for the playoffs were not available. Simmons sustained a partially dislocated left kneecap during Wednesday’s game against the Washington Wizards at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex near Orlando. The two-time All-Star got hurt midway through the third quarter. He was shown walking gingerly as he exited the arena shortly before the end of Philadelphia’s 107-98 triumph.
