Ben Simmons was officially ruled out for the season, this morning.
To be honest, this isn't too surprising- the 76ers aren't exactly making a big run this year, and it would be risky to bring the young #1 draft pick back too early.
If the 76ers get a healthy Simmons next year, and Embiid continues to improve, they may become a team to be reckoned with.
Until then, let's just hope this isn't another injury-plagued rookie (the 76ers already had to wait on Embiid).
Will this cool down the prices on his rookies at all?
I kinda hope so, because the prices they are at are awfully risky for a guy we haven't seen anything but summer league play from.
Get well, Ben!
