About injury
Injury, also known as physical trauma, is damage to the body caused by external force. This may be caused by accidents, falls, hits, weapons, and other causes. Major trauma is injury that has the potential to cause prolonged disability or death.
In 2013, 4.8 million people world-wide died from injuries, up from 4.3 million in 1990. More than 30% of these deaths were transport-related injuries. In 2013, 367,000 children under the age of five died from injuries, down from 766,000 in 1990. Injuries are the cause of 9% of all deaths, and are the sixth-leading cause of death in the world.

Late in the third quarter, he grabbed an offensive rebound, dribbled out to the corner, and dumped the ball down to Al Horford in the post. Horford was called for an offensive foul on the play, and after the whistle, Simmons started flexing his leg, and checked out of the game. He then made his way to the locker room, followed by Sixers GM Elton Brand.

Simmons was able to walk off under his own power, and didn’t appear to do anything out of the ordinary, which are good signs as well. Back in February, prior to the league shutting down, Simmons was sidelined with nerve impingement in his lower back. At the time, it wasn’t clear when he was going to be able to return, but the four-plus months of no games gave him plenty of time to recover. Hopefully this knee issue will indeed prove to be nothing, and he won’t have to miss any more time.
