Brooklyn Nets head coach Jacques Vaughn updated today on the injury of 26-year-old guard Ben Simmons, confirming that Simmons is excluded from the lineup for the rest of the season, which means Simmons will miss the basket. The Nets' next regular season and playoffs.
Simmons was the rookie No. 1 pick selected by the Philadelphia 76ers in the 2016 NBA draft. He became the best rookie in the NBA in 2018. During this period, he won the title of NBA steals king, was selected to the NBA's best third team and the 2nd NBA best Defensive first team, and also selected to the All-Star for three times from 2019 to 2021, the future prospects are very promising.
But after Simmons represented the 76ers in the 2020-2021 season and was eliminated in the Eastern Conference semifinals, his relationship with the team continued to deteriorate and he never played a game after that game. After that, he refused to participate in the 76ers' training and games due to mental illness and was fined and suspended by the team. After a dispute with the top management, the relationship was irreparable, and finally joined the Nets last season.
