Steve Nash admits it might be tricky getting Ben Simmons, a unique player, to fit without a ton of time. But because of all the things Ben does well, Nash doesn’t think it will be an overly mechanical process with square pegs and round holes.

“I would say time’s definitely not on our side, but we’re here and this is what we have, this is what we’re dealing with.”
18 games left. Kyrie can only play in 7. No clue when Ben Simmons will play & Joe is out for the season.
The goal stays the same.

Patty Mills has some ideas as to how Ben Simmons will fit into Brooklyn’s offense.
Mills gave a comprehensive update on Simmons, whom he is guiding from the bench during games.
“A bare minimum Ben Simmons makes this team a whole lot better.” #NetsWorld

Marks told YES Network that there is “no real timetable” for the 25-year-old to play before noting he remains day-by-day. Ben Simmons is expected to be re-evaluated in the next week. -via Sports Illustrated / March 3, 2022

“Unfortunately, his back stiffness has delayed his ability to get on the court with his teammates so he’s been rehabbing this last, sort of, week to 10 days and then now, he’ll progress throughout this week with some individual workouts,” Marks said. “Hopefully, by the end of next week, he’s getting more into the team environment and then we can really ramp up and start him getting into game shape and so forth.” -via Sports Illustrated / March 3, 2022
