Ben Simmons Ejected From Practice


 


Philadelphia 76ers coach Doc Rivers said the typical fun that surrounds opening day is muted with star point guard Ben Simmons back home under team suspension as his trade demand has kept the team dealing with drama.

"It's a predicament that we're in and that part is no fun. It really isn't," Rivers said Wednesday ahead of his team's first game against the New Orleans Pelicans. "We get to play right now and Ben is not. I want Ben to be playing. That's his job."

Rivers kicked Simmons out of practice this week. His first practice back since last years playoffs. 

"Obviously you don't want any of those things. You get a lot of texts, "great job" and all this stuff and it's not," Rivers said. "I don't think people understand ... you want all your players to do well. You cheer for your players. Even when they're in a tough spot, you want it to go well for them, you do. When you're put in positions like [Tuesday], it's no fun."

Rivers is hoping that he will be joining the team for their first home game of the season. A daunting experience, considering the drama surrounding Simmons lately. Simmons will be fined $330,000 for missing Wednesday's game, which will bring his fines for missed games including the preseason to more than $1.7 million.

"I don't like any player losing money. There's so many things about this that I don't like," Rivers said. "But that still doesn't mean you don't have to do your job."
