Ben Simmons was forced to leave the game against the Washington Wizards, due to a knee injury.

The superstar of the Philadelphia 76ers appeared to be walking gingerly on his left leg, as trainers escorted him to the locker room with just under six minutes to play in the third quarter.

Simmons did not return to the game and the Sixers said he sustained a left knee injury.
