There is a decent chance Ben Simmons hears from the NBA about this play in the near future.

During the second quarter of Thursday's Game 3 between the 76ers and Raptors, Simmons found himself tangled up with fellow All-Star Kyle Lowry.

Simmons ended up on the ground after jumping for a rebound while Lowry boxed him out, and then he threw his left elbow into Lowry's groin.

Simmons was not called for anything on the play, although the ESPN broadcast booth predicted he will likely be given a flagrant foul by the league retroactively.

Last season, Simmons and Lowry got into it in Philadelphia during a January game and both were ejected. After that contest, Lowry told reporters he went to the back hallway to confront Simmons.

However, following Thursday's playoff game, Lowry said, "It's nothing," when talking about the elbow to the groin, according to Josh Lewenberg of TSN.

"He said he didn't mean to do it. I'm not gonna dwell on something that wasn't called. It is what it is. It's not a big deal."

Lowry added that Simmons apologized at halftime for the low blow.

The Sixers have a 2-1 series lead after defeating the Raptors in Game 3. Game 4 will be played on Sunday.
