Ben Simmons of the Brooklyn Nets is sidelined due to lower left-side nerve irritation, as confirmed by his agent Bernie Lee to The Athletic’s Shams Charania.

His absence comes after sitting out the last three games, and he’s expected to miss more time.

Simmons’ nonattendance has granted Dorian Finney-Smith a starting position, while Lonnie Walker IV and Royce O’Neale can anticipate sustained playing time. Typically, Brooklyn will compensate for its injuries using a collaborative strategy.
