The Associated Press

PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Philadelphia 76ers guard Ben Simmons will miss a second straight game Sunday against the Charlotte Hornets because of a sprained AC joint in his right shoulder.

Simmons was hurt Wednesday when he bumped into Royce O'Neale's chest while posting up in the first quarter of a 106-104 loss to the Utah Jazz. He didn't play Friday in a 100-97 loss to the Denver Nuggets.

76ers officials said Simmons would be re-evaluated Monday.
