Ben Simmons' status for Wednesday night's game against the Washington Wizards has yet to be determined.
The 76ers point guard is listed as questionable with a sprained right ankle. He suffered the injury while landing awkwardly in the fourth quarter of Monday's loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers. The injury occurred after contesting a Kyle Korver pass underneath the Cavs' basket with 5 minutes, 9 seconds remaining. Simmons fell to the court on the play. After getting up, he immediately jogged to the locker room.
Monday's X-ray was negative. The Sixers didn't have a formal practice on Tuesday. However, Simmons at was the practice facility receiving treatment on his ankle.
The Sixers (11-8) won't have a morning shootaround on Wednesday, but Simmons will receive more treatment in the morning. He'll see how his ankle feels during the team's closed 4:30 p.m. walk-through at the arena before determining his status.
