The Nets are reportedly monitoring some swelling in Simmons left knee and as a precaution will let him further rest and recover from his injury, according to The Athletic's Shams Charania.  

Simmons, who missed the entirety of last season due to a back injury and mental health concerns, began his 2022-23 campaign in a slow start. He is averaging six points per game, seven assists, and shooting a woeful 46% from the charity stripe. 

The Nets are currently tied for the worst record in the NBA (1-5) and are looking turns things around by getting revenge tonight versus a Pacers club, who defeated them 125-116 this past Saturday.
