According to reports, Ben Simmons is questionable to play against the Brooklyn Nets in their first-game back from the All-Star break with lower back tightness. The team will give an update prior to tip-off.

Simmons is currently averaging 16.9 points, 7.9 rebounds, and 8.3 assists on the season. Brett Brown would have to make another adjustment to the rotation if he is not available.

Also, the Brooklyn Nets will be without Kyrie Irving. He is out indefinitely since injuring his shoulder again which already costed him time earlier this season.
