Ben Simmons sat out Thursday night’s win over the Nets with lower back stiffness.  The Sixers guard, who played 29 minutes in Sunday’s All-Star Game, first reported the discomfort after Wednesday’s practice.

The good news is that Simmons is expected to be in the lineup on Saturday night when the Sixers take on the best team in the Eastern Conference, the Milwaukee Bucks.
