With the Magic already struggling to score after losing guards Evan Fournier (knee sprain) and Terrence Ross (knee sprain), Simmons went down on March 19 when he collided with teammate Aaron Gordon in practice and badly bruised his right wrist. The wrist injury, one that has bothered Simmons off and on the past two years, forced him to miss an eighth straight game on Wednesday night when Orlando hosted Dallas. “It’s very disappointing to not be able to play because I love basketball and I want to be out there playing,’’ Simmons said. “My disappointment is about my love for the game and not wanting to let these (Magic) guys down under the circumstances. I’d love to be out there fighting with these guys and the most disappointing part is not being able to be out there with my teammates.’’
Storyline: Jonathon Simmons Injury
With the Spurs, he lost a total of just 36 regular-season games over two seasons. With the Magic, he’s already lost 47 games, with 15 more games to go, including a matchup Tuesday night against his former Spurs teammates at AT&T Center. “It’s difficult, but I love the game of basketball,” Simmons said. “That alone helps me get through this. It’s all a job. We go through ups and downs, so you just always have to keep the faith and hope everything gets better. But I love Orlando. I love this group of guys. So it’s just unfortunate how our season has went, but I keep the hope that something is going to change.”
