    The Sixers got Joel Embiid back, but their other All-Star was forced to leave the game against the Jazz Wednesday.

    Ben Simmons is dealing with right shoulder soreness and will not return to the game in Utah. The injury appeared to occur with 11:04 remaining in the first. Simmons was jumping for a loose ball and was bumped which caused him to land awkwardly on his back.

    Simmons attempted to come back into the game in the second quarter, but then was subbed out shortly after and had to go back to the locker room.

    In his place, Raul Neto is seeing extended time against his former team.
