Ben Simmons is back working out, undergoing treatment for his mental health and his ailing back.
TNT’s Allie LaForce cited the Sixers front office in confirming the latest on the crybaby point guard.
LaForce reported during last night’s Sixers game against the New York Knicks that Simmons worked out with this teammates as recently as Tuesday morning.
She also said that head coach Doc Rivers told her that Simmons “broke the ice” while speaking with his teammates on Friday, calling it “a huge moment” for the team.
“He has worked out at the facility in Camden with the team as recently as this morning,” LaForce said. “Members of the front office confirmed with me that he is receiving professional help for his mental health through the player’s union. He’s also undergoing regular treatment on his back.”
The 76ers also told LaForce that they plan to continue to pay him as long as he’s working toward getting better.
