BEN Simmons and his Philadelphia 76ers are still undermanned after their trade for Jimmy Butler, but basketball doesn’t wait.
The 76ers’ new acquisition doesn’t arrive for a few more days, which means they’ll have to continue to compete with a weakened roster.
Wilson Chandler and JJ Redick were inserted into the starting lineup for this game, with Simmons, Joel Embiid, and Markelle Fultz remaining in that group.
The Australian point guard is averaging 15 points, 9.6 rebounds, and 7.8 assists per game, with his 76ers sitting on an 8-6 record entering today’s game.
They’ll face the Miami Heat, who are coming off two straight losses, and will once again be without Dwyane Wade.
Josh Richardson has led the way for the Heat, averaging 20.8 points and 4.0 rebounds a game.
