One team source confessed to me that the Sixers never expected to start so well given the Simmons saga that has hung over them since Day 1 of training camp on top of how shorthanded they’ve been.

#Sixers SG Seth Curry (foot contusion) is questionable for tonight’s game vs the #MilwaukeeBucks. Ben Simmons (mentally not ready to play), Joel Embiid (health and safety protocols), Tobias Harris (protocols), Isaiah Joe (protocols) & Matisse Thybulle (protocols) are out. #NBA2:29 PM

· Would the Celtics ever trade Jaylen Brown for Ben Simmons?
· Is Steph Curry the MVP favorite?
· And is a suspension coming for Nikola Jokic?

The Celtics are the latest interested suitor to enter the Ben Simmons trade conversation. For Boston, the pathway to landing Simmons is the same as any other team, except the Celtics have Jaylen Brown. More at @BR_NBA: bleacherreport.com/articles/29502…6:27 PM

More on this storyline

“We really fit,” Embiid said, attributing it to his comfort level with teammates. “We’ve got great chemistry.” Said Rivers: “It’s funny with us. We don’t know we have problems. We don’t talk about them, we don’t voice them. There’s no talk about all the stuff.” -via marcstein.substack.com / November 9, 2021

Adrian Wojnarowski: ESPN Sources: After initial reluctance, Sixers All-Star Ben Simmons has met with a team-recommended specialist to discuss mental health concerns. Among other issues, the organization had recently reinstituted fines for Simmons’ failure to agree to those meetings. -via Twitter @wojespn / November 8, 2021

Adrian Wojnarowski: Simmons is planning to continue meeting with his @NBPA-provided mental health specialist and working out regularly at the team practice facility, sources tell ESPN. Simmons has yet to play for the Sixers this season and there remains no timeline on a possible debut. -via Twitter @wojespn / November 8, 2021
