Nets' Ben Simmons Has No Timetable for Injury Return Despite Rumors, Steve Nash Says
after a report Sunday from Shams Charania of The Athletic and Stadium that there was "optimism" Brooklyn Nets power forward Ben Simmons might be able to return for the first round of the playoffs as he recovers from a back injury, head coach Steve Nash put a kibosh on such rumors.
"There's no timetable for his return right now," Nash told reporters. "He's clearly got some markers to hit."
Nash added that Simmons hasn't begun to run or condition in his recovery process yet.
Charania reported that "Simmons has been ramping up his workload and is expected to continue doing so," adding that he and the team were "managing his back issue and have been on the same page."
But Nash told reporters Simmons wasn't doing anything at full speed and all of his runnings were on an AlterG treadmill.
