Simmons underwent surgery on April 24 to repair a torn ligament in his right (shooting) wrist and remains in recovery, Josh Robbins or the Orlando Sentinel reports.
This is the first mention of Simmons undergoing surgery, which occurred roughly two weeks after the end of the regular season. The injury prevented him from playing in the team's final 12 games, though it was simply labeled a contusion at the time. It's unclear when Simmons will be able to resume basketball activities, as Robbins notes that "Magic officials typically don't provide expected timelines for players' returns." Simmons, who started 50 of the 69 games he appeared in, averaged 13.9 points, 3.5 rebounds and 2.5 assists across 29.4 minutes during his first year with Orlando after playing two seasons for the Spurs. It's unclear if he'll retain a similar role moving forward, as the Magic appear committed to building a youthful rotation, and Simmons will turn 29 next season.
Simmons (wrist) is out for Wednesday's season finale against Washington, Zach Rosen of the Wizards official website reports.
Simmons will miss his 12th straight tilt Wednesday, which will also end his season. During his first season with Orlando after spending his first two years with the Spurs, Simmons averaged 13.9 points, 3.5 rebounds and 2.5 assists in 29.4 minutes.
Simmons (wrist) will be held out of Monday's game against the Bucks, Matt Velazquez of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
Simmons will be missing an 11th straight outing and with just Wednesday's finale against the Wizards left on the schedule following Monday's contest, it appears his season is likely over. With Jonathan Isaac (ankle), Evan Fournier (knee) and Terrence Ross (rest) out as well, look for Wesley Iwundu, Mario Hezonja and Jamel Artis to see big minutes on the wing.
Simmons (wrist) will remain sidelined for Sunday's matchup with the Raptors, Josh Robbins of the Orlando Sentinel reports.
Simmons is set to miss his tenth consecutive game due to a bruised wrist. He will only have two more potential games to suit up for before the season comes to a close, so the Magic could opt to just err on the side of caution. Still, consider him day-to-day heading into Monday's game against the Bucks.
Simmons (wrist) is listed as out for Friday's game against the Hornets.
Things continue to look bleak for Simmons, who is now on track to miss his ninth straight contest and remains without any sort of timetable for a return. With just four games remaining and there being no indication that Simmons has come anywhere close to practicing, it's likely that he is going to be inactive for the remainder of the season. However, with no official report, he'll continue to be evaluated on a game-to-game basis.
