  • Nets' Ben Simmons: Pedestrian numbers in return

    Simmons (knee) posted two points (1-2 FG, 0-1 FT), six assists, four rebounds, one steal and one block across 26 minutes in Tuesday's 116-112 loss to the Suns.

    Though he wasn't fully turned loose in his return from a five-game absence due to knee soreness, Simmons' production was disappointing nonetheless considering the role he held and the minutes he received. In the aftermath of Kyrie Irving being dealt to the Mavericks, Simmons stepped in as the Nets' starting point guard, but he could shift over to power forward with new acquisition Spencer Dinwiddie likely ready to debut Thursday versus the Bulls.

  • Nets' Ben Simmons: Available Tuesday

    Simmons (knee) is available for Tuesday's game against the Suns, Alec Sturm of NetsDaily.com reports.

    After five missed games due to left knee soreness, Simmons will return to a new-look Nets team without Kyrie Irving, who was shipped off to Dallas. Spencer Dinwiddie and Dorian Finney-Smith will not debut Tuesday, so it will still be a bit of a skeleton crew for Simmons' return. In January, he averaged 5.7 points, 7.7 assists, 6.3 rebounds and 1.7 steals in 27.8 minutes.

  • Nets' Ben Simmons: Says he'll play Tuesday

    Simmons (knee) confirmed that he will suit up for Tuesday's contest against the Suns, Brian Lewis of the New York Post reports.

    Simmons is set to make his return to Brooklyn's lineup after missing the team's past four contests due to a knee injury. With Kevin Durant (knee) still sidelined and the team potentially shorthanded due to the Kyrie Irving trade, Simmons may be in line to see increased usage during Tuesday's contest. While Simmons told reporters that he'll be playing, fantasy managers planning on activating him Tuesday will want to make sure the team confirms that the 26-year-old will suit up. Simmons is averaging 7.4 points, 6.5 rebounds, 6.4 assists and 1.4 steals across 27.3 minutes over his first 37 appearances this season.

  • Nets' Ben Simmons: Iffy for Monday's contest

    Simmons (knee) is questionable for Monday's matchup against the Clippers, Meghan Triplett of GrindCityMedia.com reports.

    Simmons has missed four straight games due to lingering knee pain. Head coach Jacque Vaughn said the 6-foot-11 point guard would be partaking in on-court work Saturday and Sunday, so it appears he's making good progress and could return to action soon.

  • Nets' Ben Simmons: Remains out Saturday

    Simmons (knee) is out for Saturday's matchup against the Wizards, Nick Friedell of ESPN.com reports.

    Simmons will miss a fourth straight game with left knee soreness, with his next chance to play arriving Monday against the Clippers. The bigger news is Kyrie Irving being listed out with right calf soreness one day after requesting a trade from the Nets.

  • Nets' Ben Simmons: Officially questionable Saturday

    Simmons (knee) is officially labeled as questionable for Saturday's game versus the Wizards, Christian Arnold of Associated Press reports.

    Head coach Jacque Vaughn indicated earlier in the day Friday that Simmons isn't expected to play in the contest, so it's fair to consider Simmons more doubtful to take the floor than his official questionable designation. Assuming he sits as expected, Simmons' next opportunity to suit up arrives Monday versus the Clippers. With T.J. Warren (lower leg) in line to sit again as well, Seth Curry presumably will make another start.

  • Nets' Ben Simmons: Unlikely to play Saturday

    Coach Jacque Vaughn said Friday that he doesn't expect Simmons (knee) to return Saturday against Washington, Alex Schiffer of The Athletic reports.

    Simmons has been back at practice recently, and Vaughn recently expressed hope that the 26-year-old would be able to suit up against the Wizards. However, Simmons will likely be forced to miss a fourth consecutive matchup, but it's possible he'll return to game action at some point next week.

  • Nets' Ben Simmons: Hopeful for Saturday

    Simmons (knee) remains out for Wednesday's game against the Celtics, but head coach Jacque Vaughn said before the matchup against Boston that he hopes to have the versatile point guard back for Saturday's matchup against the Wizards, Alex Schiffer of The Athletic reports.

    Simmons will miss his third straight game Wednesday with some soreness in his left knee, but it sounds like there's a chance he could be back in action Saturday. While he's out, Seth Curry should continue to start, and there will be more minutes available for Day'Ron Sharpe in the second unit.

    Simmons (knee) is out for Wednesday's game versus the Celtics, Alex Schiffer of The Athletic reports.

    Simmons will miss his third straight game Wednesday due to left knee soreness. His ongoing absence should continue to afford Day'Ron Sharpe more minutes as the primary backup to starting center Nic Claxton, while Seth Curry is likely to maintain a starting role in Simmons' stead. Simmons' next opportunity to suit up is Saturday's matchup with Washington.
