Report: 76ers fine Ben Simmons for not joining team on road trip

  Report: 76ers fine Ben Simmons for not joining team on road trip Simmons says he is not mentally ready to play. Recently the 76ers started fining Simmons again until he worked with a team recommended specialist on his mental health issues and took part in other basketball-related obligations. Simmons complied with part of that and did meet with a team recommended mental health professional, however, he is still not around the team in a meaningful way. That led the 76ers to fine Simmons for not joining the team on its current six-game road trip, even if he wasn’t going to play, reports Shams Charania of The Athletic.
