Philadelphia 76ers head coach Doc Rivers kicked Ben Simmons out of practice on Tuesday, 10/19, for being a distraction and not being engaged. This was the third practice he attended since rejoining the team. The Sixers suspended him one game for conduct detrimental to the team. He will miss the season opener against the New Orleans Pelicans on Wednesday, 10/20. "I just thought he was a distraction today," Rivers said Tuesday after practice. "I didn't think he wanted to do what everybody else was doing. It was early. It wasn't a big deal. I just told him he should leave. We went on with practice." Simmons was expected to talk to reporters after practice, but was not available after being sent home. Joel Embiid did not mince words saying, "At this point, I don't care about that man, honestly, he does whatever he wants. You know, that's not my job." He said, "At the end of the day, our job is not to babysit somebody. We get paid to go out on the court, play hard, and win some games."

A Philadelphia teenager was shot and critically wounded in the basement of his friend's home on Tuesday night, 10/19. It happened just before 8 p.m. on the 6000 block of North American Street in Olney. The 17-year-old boy was visiting a 17-year-old boy and a 16-year-old girl. They were in the basement playing with two handguns when one went off. The visiting boy was shot in the abdomen. He was rushed to Einstein Hospital in critical condition. Everyone in the house is cooperating with police. No word on any charges.

UPDATE: 17-year-old Kyleek Williams died Wednesday morning, 10/20, in the hospital.

Two Philadelphia Water Department employees were involved in a car crash, fight, and road rage shooting in South Philadelphia on Tuesday morning, 10/19. A PWD vehicle and another car got into an accident around 9:40 a.m. at 24th Street and Passyunk Avenue. The drivers of both vehicles got out and began fighting. The passenger of the PWD vehicle pulled out a handgun and fired a shot at the other vehicle, hitting the driver's side mirror. The two employees fled in their vehicle. They were stopped by police on the 3000 block of South 61st Street and detained. Their identities have not been released. The crash is under investigation.

UPDATE: The two suspects have been identified as Rafael Thomas and William Stewart III.
