The Brooklyn Nets star guard Ben Simmons, who has missed the past three games, expects to sit on Wednesday against the Charlotte Hornets but believes he will return on Friday against the Atlanta Hawks.

“I think we’re definitely going to look at [workload] a lot differently,” Simmons said on Tuesday, after a day of light activities at the Nets’ practice facility. “Maybe not [playing] back-to-backs or whatever it is. I think that’s going to be a joint thing with the training staff and with myself.”
