Ben Simmons touted his versatility in an interview with host Rachel Nichols. And he couldn’t resist taking a shot at Gobert in the process. “I’m one of those guys who can guard one through five,” Simmons said. “Obviously, there’s a lot of respect for Rudy. I know what he’s capable of. I know he’s great down there in the paint. But he’s not guarding everybody, and that’s just what it is. He guarded me in Utah. I had 42. And apparently I’m not a scorer. It is what it is.”

Ohm Youngmisuk: Ty Lue says the hope is that Serge Ibaka will return at some point on this road trip and play in a couple games before the postseason. Patrick Beverley will also start at point guard tonight.
Casey Holdahl: Nassir Little is questionable for Wednesday’s game versus Jazz with back spasms. Carmelo Anthony, who missed the last two games with a sprained right ankle, is not on the injury report, so he should be available.
