Last time Nets-Sixers had real beef, Philly fans went in on @Jared Dudley for jabbing at Ben Simmons. Now it’s Simmons, on the Nets, who will be getting this treatment.

I’m surprised LeBron didn’t shoot that with a clear lane on that drive. He was almost assuredly getting a basket or free throws. Felt like he pulled a Ben Simmons on that one. Instead, it’s overtime. – 10:32 PM Tom Moore @TomMoorePhilly

I love Doc Rivers, but calling for a Ben Simmons tribute video? C’mon. The only major market a guy can put his own needs ahead of the team – no matter what team doctors say – and be applauded for it is Chicago. #DRose – 12:01 PM Anthony Puccio @APOOCH

Props to Ben Simmons for sitting on the bench in Philly and not hiding in the locker room. It’s gonna be a nasty atmosphere but, as Steve Nash said, it’s good to get it over with. – 3:26 PM Nick Friedell @NickFriedell

It remains unclear when Ben Simmons will make his Nets debut — but Steve Nash does expect him to be on the bench with them in Philly on Thursday.

espn.com/nba/story/_/id… – 12:45 PM Nick Friedell @NickFriedell

Is it good for Ben to go back to Philly right now?

Nash: “It’s great. He’s on our team, he needs to be with his teammates and get the whole Philly thing out of the way a little bit. Maybe it never goes away but the first time it’s always nice to kind of deal with it and move on” – 12:01 PM Nick Friedell @NickFriedell

Nash said LaMarcus Aldridge is back in Brooklyn and had an MRI on his hip. He will be out for at least the next two games. – 10:53 AM Nick Friedell @NickFriedell

Nash still isn’t sure when Simmons will be able to play again. He said that Simmons won’t be going 5-on-5 in practice immediately whenever he is cleared to return. The Nets next formal practice is scheduled for Saturday. – 10:48 AM Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer

Nash said it was discussed in the coaches meeting to call up Day’Ron Sharpe from Long Island, but decided against it for tonight. Could still happen for Thursday. – 10:48 AM Brian Lewis @NYPost_Lewis

Aldridge left the team to go back and get an MRI. Nash said the MRI came back pretty good, but he will still need time to recover. – 10:48 AM Nick Friedell @NickFriedell

Nash says that Simmons still isn’t with the Nets in Charlotte but he will be with them in Philly on the bench. “It is what it is. He’s a big boy. He’ll be fine … he wants to be there on the bench with his teammates.” – 10:47 AM Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer

Steve Nash said he’s open to conversation if Ben Simmons needs it ahead of his return to Philly. Thinks it’s good for him to get some of the heckling out of the way even though he’s not playing. – 10:46 AM Brian Lewis @NYPost_Lewis

Steve Nash said Ben Simmons is fully aware of the reaction he’ll get. Nash said it’ll be good for him to face, and the All-Star wants to be on the bench supporting his #Nets teammates. #Sixers – 10:46 AM Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer

Steve Nash said LaMarcus Aldridge is out for tonight and Thursday’s game in Philly. Cam Thomas is a game-time decision. Ben Simmons is not here. Will join them in Philly. – 10:43 AM Brian Lewis @NYPost_Lewis

More on this storyline

Veteran Nets guard Goran Dragic knows the atmosphere in Philadelphia will likely be intense, but he said he doesn’t think Simmons will have an issue with it. “It’s probably not going to be pleasant,” Dragic said. “The same as in Toronto [for me], but it is what it is. We’re all professional athletes. At the end of the day it’s only boos, so you just go out there and perform and try to do your best. But as long as it’s nothing serious, no throwing things and just be verbal, I don’t care.” -via ESPN / March 8, 2022 Nash was quick with his answer Tuesday when asked if he thought it would be good for Simmons to be in that environment in Philadelphia. “It’s great,” Nash said. “He’s on our team, he needs to be with his teammates and get the whole Philly thing out of the way a little bit. Maybe it never goes away, but the first time it’s always nice to kind of deal with it and move on.” -via ESPN / March 8, 2022 Shams Charania: Ben Simmons will not play in Thursday’s Nets-76ers – but is expected to make the return trip to Philadelphia and join team on bench inside Wells Fargo Center, sources say.
