It was previously reported that the Brooklyn Nets are hoping to get Ben Simmons back towards the latter part of their first-round playoff matchup against the Boston Celtics. Based on the most recent comments of coach Steve Nash, however, it sounds like the team isn’t very optimistic about this at the moment.

Nash spoke to reporters on Friday and when he was asked about Simmons’ progress in practice, the Nets shot-caller wasn’t exactly enthused:

“He hasn’t been able to do anything yet, so no,” Nash said, via Kristian Winfield of the New York Daily News.

That definitely does not sound like optimism to me. On the bright side, the Nets reportedly expect to get Simmons back anytime between Games 4 and 7 of the Celtics series, so the former Rookie of the Year still has at least more than one week to get his body right.

Since making his move from the Sixers last February, Simmons has yet to make his Brooklyn Nets debut. The three-time All-Star has been dealing with a lingering back injury that has prevented him from suiting up for his new team. The Nets are hoping that he gets to ramp up his workload in practice in the coming days as they look to bring him into the fold as soon as possible.
