"We don't know", head coach Brett Brown said after the game as he addressed Simmons' injury. "I feel numb to it".

Philadelphia fans were left pulling their hair out (or what's left of it) after star man Ben Simmons went down with a knee injury during the third quarter of the team's 107-98 victory over the Washington Wizards. At the next stoppage of play, he limped straight to the locker room.

Simmons will consider different treatment options.

"Some of the information is fluid, it's still moving", Brown said. "I'm sure the club will make some statement about his departure from the floor soon". But as far as knowing more than that, I don't.


Philadelphia have already clinched a playoff berth and entered Thursday's play a game back of the Indiana Pacers for the Eastern Conference's fifth seed.

For now, Simmons is being ruled as "out", with the 76ers' next game set to take place on Friday against Orlando.

Philadelphia 76ers forward Tobias Harris continued to be a steady contributor Wednesday night as his team remains in a fight for postseason seeding position in the upcoming National Basketball Association playoffs.

Simmons, 23, is in the midst of his second straight All-Star season with the 76ers, averaging 16.6 points, 8.1 assists and 7.6 rebounds.
