REPORT: Game 4 Return Set As 'Realistic Target' For Ben Simmons' Return

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, Game 4 of the Nets-Celtics first-round series has been set as Ben Simmons’ “realistic target” for returning to an NBA court.

If Simmons does indeed play next Monday, it will also be Simmons’ Nets debut and first game since the Philadephia 76ers Game 7 loss to the Atlanta Hawks in last year’s semifinals.

Simmons hasn’t played due to a holdout he had with Sixers management, a battle with mental health, and a lower back injury he’s been dealing with since being traded from Philly at the trade deadline. The announcement of Simmon’s impending return follows the news that he was cleared for contact after playing some 4-on-4 drills on Monday
