Ben Simmons News
Brooklyn Nets forward Ben Simmons (calf) remains out for Wednesday's game against Charlotte. The 26-year-old has been sidelined by a strained left calf. However, there appears to be light at the end of the tunnel, as Simmons is hoping he can return on Friday versus the Atlanta Hawks. That said, until he finds his way back to the floor, Joe Harris, who had 13 points, six rebounds, and two steals while shooting 3-for-5 from deep in Sunday's meeting with Boston, may remain in the starting lineup.
Frustration builds as the Brooklyn Nets struggle to keep their best defensive player on the court. Ben Simmons will miss multiple contests due to a strained leg. Missing five games so early plays as an omen for what to expect for the duration of the season. Fantasy managers should be cautious as Simmons continues to suffer from various injuries. While Simmons stands as the assists and steals leader in per-game categories for the woeful Nets, there are healthier options on the waiver wire.
Brooklyn Nets point guard Ben Simmons played only 11 minutes against Orlando Monday, leaving the game with left knee soreness. He went scoreless in the game, missing three shots from the field, and collected four rebounds and three assists with two turnovers. Joe Harris and Seth Curry picked up the slack, with the former even ending up logging 36 minutes in the game. Simmons had just found some momentum, so it's very unfortunate that he has picked up another injury. The team hasn't yet said if he will miss any time but it seems likely. In addition to Harris and Curry, Edmond Sumner might also get a boost with Simmons out of the picture, although he logged only seven minutes Monday and hasn't really used his minutes well all season.
Brooklyn Nets forward Ben Simmons built off of a very strong game with an even better game on Sunday against the Memphis Grizzlies. The 26-year-old point forward posted 22 points, eight rebounds, five assists, and one steal. The most impressive part of his game was that he made 11 of his 13 shots. He may have also turned the ball over five times, but if he keeps posting all-around stats like this, those turnovers can be tolerated in many different formats and team builds.
