Nets head coach Jacque Vaughn had been hopeful that Ben Simmons could be accessible for Wednesday’s recreation in Boston, however it seems that gained’t be the case. The Nets introduced on Tuesday that Simmons, alongside with T.J. Warren, could be out of the lineup.
It will likely be the third straight recreation that Simmons has missed due to left ankle soreness. The Nets star has been dealing with the problem since he left within the third quarter of Brooklyn’s loss to the Detroit Pistons.
It has raised questions for when Simmons does return, whether or not or not he’d play in back-to-back video games.
“I think our conversations (with Simmons) will be real and what can we handle from a management and load perspective, cumulative loads across the board over the course of games. So all those questions will be on the table in order for us to keep our group healthy and whole as we trend toward the end of the year,” Nets coach Jacque Vaughn mentioned.
T.J. Warren can even sit out of Wednesday’s recreation with a knee contusion. It’ll additionally mark the third consecutive recreation he has missed.
