Ben Simmons took a spot in the Philadelphia 76ers locker room instead of the starting lineup on opening night. Simmons, the 2016 No. 1 overall draft pick, hoped to return at some point this season from a broken bone in his right foot and said he was never involved in any discussion about sitting out the season. “I’ll come back when I’m ready,” Simmons said. Simmons was expected to become the franchise player for a forlorn Sixers team coming off a 10-72 season. Simmons instead attended the season opener on Wednesday in street clothes and was set to watch the game against Oklahoma City from the locker room. Simmons was injured last month during a training camp scrimmage. The Australian forward played at LSU last season. “As soon as I get out there, I’d love to play,” he said.
