Per ESPN, however, there's "little expectation" that Simmons will be ready to return that soon.
Simmons did not play Monday against the Hawks as a result of the back injury. He also missed the 76ers' first game after the All-Star break against the Nets. He returned on Saturday against the Bucks, but played just five minutes.
The Sixers are currently in a battle for the No. 4 seed in the Eastern Conference, sitting 1.5 games ahead of the Miami Heat for the fifth seed. They are just two games ahead of the Pacers for the No. 6 seed.
Simmons is averaging 16.7 points and 7.8 rebounds per game. He appeared in his second consecutive All-Star Game two weekends ago.
The 76ers are on the road Wednesday night to play the Cavaliers.
