Ben Simmons News
Brooklyn Nets guard/forward Ben Simmons (knee) is out for Wednesday's meeting with the Boston Celtics. After Simmons collected five points, eight assists, and six boards in 24 minutes during Tuesday's defeat to the Celtics, a left knee effusion will cost him the second leg of a two-game home and away set against Boston. In all likelihood, Simmons will be back on the hardwood for Brooklyn's first outing post-All-Star break on Feb. 22 against the Toronto Raptors. Cameron Johnson (thigh) will return for the Nets on Wednesday following a four-game absence, representing the most likely candidate to replace Simmons in the starting five. The Celts rank first against forwards this season, per DraftKings scoring, so while Johnson is fine to deploy in head-to-head season-long fantasy leagues, he's only a contrarian DFS option in a nightmarish situation.
Brooklyn Nets guard/forward Ben Simmons (back) isn't seen on the team's injury report ahead of Tuesday's contest versus the Dallas Mavericks. Simmons has alternated appearances for the Nets since returning on Jan. 29 from a nerve impingement in his lower back, but he'll suit up on Tuesday. In 32 combined minutes across his last two games, the 27-year-old former No. 1 overall pick has totaled 10 points, 17 rebounds, 16 assists, two steals, and two blocks. Dallas has struggled to defend opposing backcourt members this season, so while Simmons carries DFS risk due to uncertain playing time and a probable bench role, he should be deployed in most season-long fantasy settings.
Brooklyn Nets guard/forward Ben Simmons (back) won't play on Monday against Golden State. He has just returned from a lengthy absence, and the team is closely monitoring Simmons' workload. It's the first game of a back-to-back, and Simmons will likely return to the lineup Tuesday versus Dallas. The three-time All-Star hasn't played much since making his comeback, but he's still been productive, averaging 5.0 points, 8.5 rebounds, and 8.0 assists in 17.0 minutes in the two games he's featured in since returning. With Simmons unavailable, Lonnie Walker IV and Dennis Smith Jr. could get a few extra minutes on the court off the Brooklyn bench.
Brooklyn Nets guard/forward Ben Simmons (knee) is on track to return to the lineup for Saturday's matchup against Philadelphia. The team has listed Simmons as probable for the clash against his former team. Simmons returned from a nearly three-month absence against Utah on Monday but hurt his left knee and was forced to sit out another game on Wednesday versus Phoenix. The enigmatic Australian played only 18 minutes against the Jazz, but he put his talents on full display by amassing 10 points, eight rebounds, and 11 assists.
