More on this storyline

Both Simmons and the Nets hoped the surgery would help him get back on the court, but the three-time All-Star was limited to 42 games (33 starts) last season due to injury. He missed the final six weeks of the season due to a nerve impingement in his back. But Simmons and the Nets feel optimism about their approach this offseason as Simmons enters the fourth year of his five-year extension. -via SportsNet New York / July 27, 2023
