NBA Injury Report: March 10
Portland Trail Blazers vs. Philadelphia 76ers
Anfernee Simons (ankle) - available
Update - Simons is available to play and will start for the Trail Blazers.
Simons could be back after aggravating his ankle injury, but the Blazers will be cautious given how his last return went. If everything checks out, Simons will take some shots away from Damian Lillard and Jerami Grant.

After sitting on the second night of a back-to-back earlier in the week, Harden is back in for the 76ers.
