Sixers fine Simmons for missing last game, will continue to

ANALYSIS: The Sixers have been supportive of Simmons sitting out games due to his mental health, but a lack of cooperation on Simmons end to update the team of his progress has led to fines restarting.

The 76ers are 7-2, and a motivated Ben Simmons could help the team reach contender status through his own play or a trade.
