Sixers’ Ben Simmons Participates in 5-on-0 Drills


Philadelphia 76ers prized rookie Ben Simmons was on the court and went through five-on-zero practice drills Tuesday for the first time since undergoing surgery to repair a fracture in his right foot in the preseason.

Sixers coach Brett Brown told reporters in Philadelphia that the top overall pick in the 2016 draft went through the scripted drills, described as very light and essentially a walk-through, at 80 percent. “The gym got a lift,” Brown told reporters, according to The Philadelphia Inquirer. “You could feel it.”
