Simmons out for home opener, still not ready to join 76ers

PHILADELPHIA (AP) Ben Simmons sat out the Philadelphia 76ers' home opener on Friday night for personal reasons and the franchise does not know when the three-time All-Star guard will return.

Simmons was suspended for the first game of the season for conduct detrimental to the team after coach Doc Rivers threw him out of practice for refusing to participate in a drill. He returned Friday and addressed the team before the shootaround for the opener against Brooklyn. Rivers said it was a "productive day" and hoped the meeting was a start toward bringing Simmons back into the fold.

"It still doesn't mean things will work out perfect, or it could," Rivers said. "I've always believed that. I've never wavered from that."
