Ben Simmons has fully recovered from his back injury suffered on Feb. 22nd.
"He's good to go. He's put in a tremendous amount of work for me to be able to confidently say that," Brett Brown said on a conference call with reporters Wednesday afternoon.
"As you search for silver linings with this pandemic and the way things have shaped up, it would be hard-pressed for me to find something more obvious than this: It's enabled Ben to reclaim his health. He's good to go, and we look forward to watching him with what I'm told is effectively 100 percent health."
It was unclear when Simmons would have been cleared to return had the season not been suspended.
