Brooklyn Nets star Ben Simmons appears to be doing well in terms of his rehab process from back surgery. At this point, it sounds like the former Rookie of the Year is on track to be ready for the start of the 2022-23 season.
NBA insider Shams Charania of The Athletic recently provided a fresh update on the injury status of Simmons. According to Shams, all appears to be going well at the moment:
“I'm told Ben Simmons is feeling a lot better, and the goal is for him to be playing basketball in the 2022/2023 season,” Shams said on a recent episode of the Pat McAfee Show. “… I think this will be a rehab process that will go anywhere from two to four months. And so the goal is again, as September comes around, that he's gonna be getting back and doing more basketball stuff.”

Based on all that has gone down over the past few months, this can be considered good news for the Nets. Right now, the best-case scenario for them is for Simmons to be ready to go once the new season starts. This appears to be where things are headed at the moment and we might finally see Simmons make his long-anticipated Nets debut when the 2022-23 season opens.
