Ben Simmons missed four consecutive games from Oct. 31 through Nov. 5 with swelling in that left knee. The injury also cost him the Nov. 13 loss at the Lakers. It remains to be seen how long he’ll miss with this flare up. #Nets4:56 PM

Nets coach Jacque Vaughn said Simmons was having some discomfort in the knee and asked to come out. He doesn’t think Simmons will need another MRI but the team will see how he’s feeling on Tuesday and is listing him as day-to-day for now. “We’ll check him day by day, see how he responds with a little treatment,” he said, “see what it looks like (Tuesday).” -via ESPN / November 29, 2022
Vaughn does not think Simmons’ latest knee setback is related to his back surgery over the summer. “No, I think more so than anything the accumulation of games,” Vaughn said. “He hasn’t had this amount of accumulation of games over a period of a long time. Talked to the performance team about that. We were warned about that just as these games start to add up. “His cumulative load as that begins to add up, it’s really stretching him sometimes the amount of games we’ve just had with the minutes that he’s played pretty high going into tonight’s game.” -via ESPN / November 29, 2022
