Ben Simmons (back) targeting Game 4 on Monday for Nets debut

Brooklyn Nets forward Ben Simmons (back) has a realistic chance to play in Game 4 on Monday against the Philadelphia 76ers, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

What It Means:

Wojnarowski adds that Game 3 is still on the table for Simmons to make his Nets debut, but Game 4 seems more plausible. Nets head coach Steve Nash hasn't indicated whether or not Simmons will immediately enter the starting lineup, but he will likely be on some sort of minutes restriction once he gets cleared.

Simmons is averaging 1.21 FanDuel points per minute for his career and he averaged 1.15 FanDuel points per minute across 12 playoff games last year.
