Greetings from Milwaukee. It’s cold. Nets-Bucks tip shortly. Goran Dragić makes his debut tonight off the bench. Second unit has him with Patty Mills and LaMarcus Aldridge, a hint of the rotation come full strength. Is this the Nets’ last game before KD come back? Updates comin’. – 8:27 PM Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed

Steve Nash on Ben Simmons: “It’s not like an injury. It’s just as he’s returning to play his back’s flared up a little bit.

And then, he finishes with:

“But it’s not a long-term thing.” – 7:23 PM Dave Early @DavidEarly

Steve Nash confirmed Ben Simmons is dealing with “a little back soreness.”

Adds “Yeah, he hasn’t played a game since June, so that’s just part of his process of trying to play…as you ramp up you’re subject to certain things as you would be with muscle soreness.”

#NetsWorld – 7:10 PM Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed

Steve Nash says “there was no incident” after Kevin Durant’s second high-intensity workout this morning. Durant must clear one more without incident to clear Brooklyn’s return-to-play benchmarks. #Nets – 7:05 PM Dave Early @DavidEarly

Steve Nash likened Ben Simmons issue to the type of muscle soreness any player might get ramping up from a long layoff spanning back to June.

Didn’t seem like he’s very concerned Simmons sustained a new, significant injury during reconditioning. – 7:03 PM Brian Lewis @NYPost_Lewis

Steve Nash said Ben Simmons is dealing with some back soreness, but nothing beyond what would be expected for somebody who hasn’t played since June. #nets – 7:03 PM Mark Deeks @MarkDeeksNBA

Ben Simmons has mental illness and a sore back? Looks like I’ve found my new most relatable player. – 7:02 PM Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer

Steve Nash confirms @Shams Charania report on Ben Simmons, says he has “a little back soreness.” Doesn’t consider it an injury, just something that has come up as he gets back into form. – 7:02 PM Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed

Steve Nash categorizes Ben Simmons’ back issue as “just a little soreness.” #Nets – 7:01 PM Shams Charania @ShamsCharania

Sources: Nets star Ben Simmons is dealing with back soreness in reconditioning process that requires further strengthening of the area over a period of time before return to action. – 6:39 PM CBS NBA @CBSSportsNBA

Goran Dragic ia available tonight for the Nets

So is Kyrie

No KD, Ben Simmons or Joe Harris – 1:55 PM Brian Lewis @NYPost_Lewis

Steve Nash says KD should play in the next week. #nets – 12:24 PM Barbara Barker @meanbarb

Goran Dragic makes Nets debut at Bucks tonight. Nash says KD could be back in next week. – 12:11 PM Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer

Steve Nash has no updates on Joe Harris. Adds Kevin Durant will return within the next week. – 12:05 PM Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer

Steve Nash says Ben Simmons has yet to partake in a high intensity workout, which is a big barometer for his return. He’s doing skill work, physio and individual work. – 12:04 PM Nick Friedell @NickFriedell

Nash says that KD is out tonight — but he is confident he’ll be back within the next week. Nash says he’s getting better every day. – 11:58 AM Gery Woelfel @GeryWoelfel

Tonight’s Nets-Bucks game:

No Durant.

No Simmons.

No Harris.

Kind of reminds of an Eastern Conference playoff series last season. – 10:57 AM Brian Lewis @NYPost_Lewis

More on this storyline

Nets head coach Steve Nash said Kevin Durant is getting closer to returning from his knee sprain. “Every day closer,” Nash said, via ESPN’s Nick Friedell. “We’ll see. I expect in the next week he’ll be back for sure. It could be quick; it could be the whole week barring any setbacks.” -via Sports Illustrated / February 26, 2022 “I think with Kevin he’s been a great healer throughout his career,” Nash said. “So the No. 1 thing is to get him back healthy and feeling secure in his health and his body so he can move and be free. When he’s back, obviously he adds a ton to our team on both ends of the floor…one of the greatest scorers of all time. And we also know he helps us defensively; he gives us more size and length. So he’s a big miss for us, and whenever he gets back, he’ll impact our team.” -via Sports Illustrated / February 26, 2022 Brian Lewis: Kevin Durant went through a second high intensity workout today. If he comes through this and then a third OK, he could be cleared to play. #Nets #NBA -via Twitter @NYPost_Lewis / February 26, 2022
