Brett Brown, responding to a question about the health of Ben Simmons, says he is “good to go” for the restart in Orlando.

Simmons, 23, was dealing with a nerve impingement in his lower back in March.
However, the injury appears to be behind him now. The Sixers will need every bit of the All-Star once the season resumes.
The 6-foot-10 phenom is putting up 16.7 points, 8.2 assists and 7.8 boards per game this season. He is one of the best guards in the association.
The Sixers, though, haven’t experienced a ton of success this year. The team holds the No. 6 spot in the Eastern Conference standings.
The 2019-20 season is set to restart in late July in Orlando, Fla.
