Sixers All-Star point guard Ben Simmons will be our for at least another three weeks.

According to the Athletic Simmons is making progress on his lower back nerve impingement, and he needs more time to recover.

Back issues are no joke, and this means the Sixers are hoping to have Simmons healthy for the post season at this point.

This is a big blow for fantasy owners with playoffs starting next week in most leagues.

Continue to expect Shake Milton and Tobias Harris to take on more ball handling roles.

The upside is that big man Joel Embiid is back from his shoulder injury tonight against the Pistons.
