Simmons-less Sixers set for desperate Blazers

The Philadelphia 76ers are reeling from Ben Simmons' knee injury but are aware that nobody is going to feel sorry for their plight.

Simmons will soon undergo knee surgery that will likely be season-ending, but the 76ers aim to stretch their winning streak to four games when they battle the Portland Trail Blazers on Sunday night near Orlando.

Simmons suffered a dislocated left kneecap during Wednesday's victory over the Washington Wizards, and Philadelphia announced Saturday that the two-time All-Star will undergo a procedure to remove a loose body from the knee.
