The 26-year-old Ben Simmons won’t play again for the Brooklyn Nets this season, head coach Jacque Vaughn said Tuesday.

Star guard will start a rehab program for his ailing back.

Doctors haven’t recommended surgery and a procedure is “not in sight,” according to Vaughn.

“Our doctors and the specialists feel and think that he’ll have a full recovery,” Vaughn said, “so that starts now.”
