Nets’ Ben Simmons out on Tuesday vs. Bulls due to left knee soreness

The Chicago Bulls hit the road on Tuesday to take on Kevin Durant and the Brooklyn Nets, who will be without one of their stars.

On Tuesday, the Nets announced that Ben Simmons would miss his second-straight game due to left knee soreness.

Simmons missed Brooklyn’s game on Sunday against the Indiana Pacers, getting their second victory of the season, 116-109.

Without Simmons, that eliminates the prime defender on DeMar DeRozan for Tuesday’s matchup, which could open up an opportunity for Deebo to have a big game in Brooklyn.

Tuesday’s game tips off at 7:30 PM ET on TNT.
