Bryan Colangelo provided an update on the health of Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid, who are both currently out of action for the Philadelphia 76ers.
Simmons has been practicing a bit recently after being off the floor since breaking a foot in late September. Embiid has missed eight straight games because of a knee contusion.
"I do want everyone to understand: We're taking every precaution," Colangelo said. "We put the health and performance of our players ahead of everything. It's a long-term scenario with these guys, as opposed to rushing them back, and putting them in a position to fail."
Colangelo wants Simmons and Embiid to play together at some point this season.
"Obviously, when you see things in practice, you can talk about them all day long, but until you put it into practice and see it, it's going to be hard to know the ultimate outcome," he said. "We hope ... they're going to both be able to play together this year. That's the goal. That's the objective."
