More than a day in advance of their matchup against the Orlando Magic, the Philadelphia 76ers ruled out forward Ben Simmons with soreness in his left elbow. The team will examine Simmons elbow on Sunday and should provide a further update on his status and a timetable for when he can return from the lineup.
In Simmons' absence, guard T.J. McConnell should see extended minutes. The 25-year-old averages 24 minutes per night this season and with Simmons out, he should see upwards of 30 minutes against the Magic. He'll be someone to plug in as a value play in Saturday's NBA DFS slate on FanDuel and DraftKings.
