Charania: Ben Simmons (back) plans to play in Brooklyn's Monday Game 4 matchup
According to Shams Charania, Brooklyn Nets forward Ben Simmons (back) is planning to play in Monday's Game 4 contest against the Boston Celtics.
After recent contact practice including 4-on-4 work, Simmons appears finally on track to make his season debut on Monday. In a tough spot against a Boston unit allowing a 115.1 defensive rating this postseason, expect Simmons to play a restricted role on Monday if he is active.
In 412 postseason minutes last season, Simmons averaged 1.15 FanDuel points per minute.
