Nets Announce Ben Simmons Will Undergo Back Surgery

The Brooklyn Nets revealed that Ben Simmons would go through back surgical treatment on Tuesday.

According to Nick Friedell of ESPN, the surgical treatment is a “microdiscectomy procedure” that will “alleviate pain caused by the herniated disc” in his back. Simmons will supposedly take 3-4 months to recuperate completely, per NBA expert Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

Simmons’ back injury was initially reported soon after the 76ers traded him to the Nets for James Harden at the trade due date. Simmons remained the whole 2021-22 season and playoffs due to a season-long fight with psychological health and the previously mentioned lower back injury that avoided him from a possible Game 4 return in the Nets’ first-round series versus the Celtics.
