There is promising news for Brooklyn Nets fans as ESPN NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski reports that Ben Simmons might make his return to the court as soon as Monday against the Utah Jazz.

Simmons, who has been sidelined since November 6 with a lower back nerve impingement, participated in practice with the Nets’ G League team over the weekend.

Simmons’ absence has been felt by the Nets, currently residing in the 11th place in the Eastern Conference with a record of 17 wins and 27 losses.

The three-time NBA All-Star has been averaging 6.5 points, 10.8 rebounds, and 6.7 assists in 31.8 minutes per game.
