Ben Simmons lost the last 8 games of the Philadelphia 76ers before the NBA put the season on hold due to the coronavirus crisis.

The Sixers’ superstar was really in pain, as the 76ers’ head coach Brett Brown revealed during an hour-long Zoom call on Friday.

Brett Brown said that Simmons was vomiting from being in so much pain during a Feb. 22 game against the Milwaukee Bucks, his last before ruled out at least for two weeks by the Sixers’ coaching staff.

Despite the setbacks, Simmons will be available for the Sixers, if the season resumes with him being valuable a member of his team.

The Australian averaged 16.7 points, 8.2 assists and 7.8 rebounds in almost 36 minutes per game for the sixth-seeded Philadelphia.
