Injured on the back since the end of February, we feared that a Ben Simmons not fully restored for the resumption of play in Orlando. No, the Australian said he was hot and ready to give everything he has in Florida. There’s joy in Pennsylvania!
Tobias Harris said, the Sixers have a great chance to redeem themselves. Philidelphia has had a more than complicated season, and finally… it is difficult to see which other team has benefited the most from this suspension. The Knicks? The Warriors? Hell is good when it stops a little eh. And good news to Philly! The workforce should be full for this recovery, since Shake Milton is currently the only one absent. And who says effective (almost) complete, says Ben Simmons is back. If Brett Brown was cautious about BS’s health, Australian’s back problems seem to be behind him. Injured against the Bucks last February, the extended break allowed number 25 to go to the physiotherapist and recover well. And obviously, he is fresh as a roach for this recovery in Florida, as reported NBC Sports.
“I feel better than at the start of the season. I’ve been working since my injury, and I’ve worked so far to be ready for anything that can happen wherever we go. ”
So it’s time to take out champagne for aficionados of Philadelphia. “Trust the process!” Ben Simmons has missed 11 games this season, 17 for Josh Richardson and 21 for friend Jojo Embiid, not easy to work in these conditions, especially when you are the most bipolar team in the NBA. At the Wells Fargo Center? Only two losses this season. But outside, the record of 10 wins and 24 losses is really not good to see. Combined with that, the problems with this fairly large starting five and the Harris-Horford equation. Result … the Sixers are only in sixth place in the East. While Embiid successfully passed his license, the Australian leader has certainly worked well on his preparation. Don’t worry Ben, we’ve also gone through the Rocky’s series during confinement. Problem, we look more like Paulie than Balboa.
Ben Simmons is visibly ready for the recovery. With this return, Philadelphia will have to find its eye of the tiger because the obstacle course will most likely begin … from the first round of the Playoffs.
