Ben Simmons hasn't suited up to play during the 2021-22 season, but it might. With the, a first round matchup is set against the Celtics, and with Boston's outstanding wing ability, Simmons' abilities as a defender would certainly be beneficial for the Nets, at least on paper.

ESPN's Brian Windhorst said on Thursday that Simmons will be Games 4-6 a reward, which even Windhorst seemed irritated by as he revealed his thoughts on Get Up!

Ben Simmons might make his Nets debut as early as game four against Boston, according to.

"For seven or eight weeks now I've heard nothing but pessimism on the Ben Simmons front, and that has changed dramatically in the last few days."

Shams Charania's claim was later confirmed, and it appears as though Simmons will face a substantial effort to take the court in the middle of this first round series.

Ben Simmons, a three-time All-Star, is aiming for a return in the Games 4-6 (April 25-29) of the first round series against the Celtics, according to sources.

Simmons might be suited up for his first game of the season in an elimination game, but it's possible that the Celtics will be up 3-1 ahead of Game 5 or 3-2 going into Game 6, which would create an even more exciting space for Simmons to parachute into.

If the Nets are up in the series at the time, would they want to mess with what's been working by adding Simmons to the mix. For a Brooklyn team that hasn't been short on drama all season, it appears they would add another layer to the mix for the playoffs right as they seemed to be getting a little bit of continuity.
