Is Ben Simmons playing tonight vs. 76ers? Injury update for Nets’ 2022 NBA preseason game

The last time we saw Ben Simmons on an NBA court was Game 7 of the 2021 Eastern Conference Semifinals.

There was hope that he would suit up at some point in the 2021-22 season, but the three-time All-Star ended up missing all 82 games for a number of reasons. The good news for the Nets is that Simmons has been cleared to play after undergoing back surgery and recently told JJ Redick that he’s in a much better place mentally.

Does that mean Simmons will play in the team’s preseason opener on Monday? Here’s what we know about his status.

Is Ben Simmons playing vs. 76ers tonight?

Simmons is not listed on Brooklyn’s injury report for its preseason matchup with Philadelphia, setting the stage for him to make his Nets debut.

The No. 1 pick in the 2016 NBA Draft, Simmons has career averages of 15.9 points, 8.1 rebounds, 7.7 assists and 1.7 steals per game. In addition to three All-Star selections, he’s earned two All-Defensive First Team selections and one All-NBA Third team selection.

Simmons spent the first five seasons of his career in Philadelphia. The 76ers traded him to the Nets at the trade deadline of the 2021-22 season in a deal for 10-time All-Star James Harden.
