Ben Simmons (right foot) playing 5-on-5 for 76ers

Philadelphia 76ers forward Ben Simmons (right foot surgery) said during ESPN's telecast on Sunday that he's resumed playing 5-on-5.

What It Means:

Simmons is expected to be ready for opening night but head coach Brett Brown has already conceded that last year's top overall pick will be on a minute limit, so his fantasy appeal will be limited. He and Markelle Fultz, this year's first selection in the draft, will likely both see time running the point for Philadelphia.
