Ben Simmons Injury Update Has Philadelphia 76ers Fans Accusing Former Star of Running Scared

Recently acquired Ben Simmons hoped to make his Brooklyn Nets debut in time for a March 10 visit to face his old squad, the Philadelphia 76ers. But according to the Nets, that debut is delayed. The 25-year-old is dealing with back soreness during his ramp-up to game condition.

However, some in Philadelphia aren’t buying the whole “sore back” thing. When Simmons belatedly reported to the 76ers in October, he sought treatment for back soreness. The three-time All-Star last played in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference semifinals in June. It was an inglorious final appearance in a Philadelphia uniform and set off a months-long drama leading to the trade.
