What Ben Simmons Said On Friday Before Game 3

The Brooklyn Nets are hosting the Boston Celtics for Game 3 of their first-round playoff series

For the game, Ben Simmons remains ruled out, but he did meet with the media on Friday

Ben Simmons says it's "reasonable" to expect him to play in Game 4, but he can't commit to it fully

"It's literally day-to-day, I can't tell you definitely Game 4. If I could play right now, I'd be on the court."

"It's literally day-to-day," Simmons said of his status. "I've had plenty of great days, which has been great for me."

Simmons has yet to play in a game so far this season

"I'm very hopeful," Simmons said.

The All-Star also spoke about what it will be like playing with Kyrie Irving, Kevin Durant and Seth Curry

The Nets currently trail the Celtics 2-0 in the series

Simmons began his career with the Philadelphia 76ers as the first overall pick out of LSU in 2016

The Nets sent the 76ers James Harden and Paul Milsap for Simmons
