The Brooklyn Nets left their injured trio of Kevin Durant, Ben Simmons and T.J. Warren home, not having them travel for Wednesday’s 139-96 loss to the Boston Celtics.

“Hopeful, man; keep hope alive,” Nets coach Jacque Vaughn said of Simmons and Warren.

“Yeah, it’s just the next day. They just weren’t ready yet. So the best thing was to leave them at home, they can get more treatment, and then remain hopeful for Saturday versus Washington. So that’s still part of the plan, hopefully.”
