Ben Simmons has yet to play since before the All-Star break as he's dealing with both back and knee issues.

Simmons has now missed 24 games this season and his eighth straight.

“We want Ben back when he’s capable of being back for us,” Jacque Vaughn said. “The day-to-day thing, that’s just for me to say some term to you guys. When the back gets better, and when the knee gets better, then he’ll be with us.”

Simmons has $78 million owed over the next two seasons.
