Folks, it’s been a long time since Ben Simmons last played in an NBA game. He’s been with the Nets for nearly a full calendar year, but the last time he actually logged minutes on the floor came in Philadelphia with the 76ers.
After battling mental health issues and a back injury, Simmons recently declared himself “ready to go” for Brooklyn as Opening Night continues creeping closer. He shared that same sentiment while chatting with the media on Monday. Now, we have actual video evidence of Simmons participating in basketball activities on Tuesday during the Nets’ practice.
