76ers announce that All-Star Ben Simmons needs knee surgery

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) All-Star Ben Simmons will have surgery on his left knee, a big blow for the Philadelphia 76ers and their hopes of making a deep run in this season's playoffs.

The 76ers announced Saturday that Simmons will be leaving the NBA's season-restart bubble at Walt Disney World. There was no immediate timeframe for his return, and it's likely that no firm timetable on his recovery will be set until after the surgery.

Simmons left Philadelphia's game against Washington on Wednesday midway through the third quarter because of injury, officially diagnosed as a subluxation of the left patella. A subluxation is a partial and temporary dislocation; the patella is the kneecap.
