The Brooklyn Nets star guard Ben Simmons will be out for his third straight game on Wednesday with knee soreness. Team head coach Jacque Vaughn said on Monday he has not recently talked about workload specifics with the player, who was struggling prior to the injury.

“I think our conversations will be real and what can we handle from a management and load perspective, cumulative loads across the board over the course of games,” Vaughn said. “So all those questions will be on the table in order for us to keep our group healthy and whole as we trend toward the end of the year.”
