Philadelphia 76ers Ben Simmons Likely Out For Season Due To Knee Surgery

Philadelphia 76ers All-Star Ben Simmons will undergo arthroscopic surgery on his left knee and is likely to miss the rest of the season. The procedure is expected to take place outside of the Disney campus in the coming days, and the Sixers are preparing now for a postseason run that will come without Simmons.

Simmons will have a loose body removed from his left knee; the loose body was a result of a left patella subluxation suffered in Wednesday’s victory over the Washington Wizards. A subluxation of the patella means that the kneecap popped out of place but returned on its own.
