Simons (ankle) will play Monday against the Magic, Casey Holdahl of the Trail Blazers' official site reports.
As expected, Simons is good to go Monday after getting through warmups with no issues. Over his last five games, he's averaging 7.6 points, 1.6 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 1.0 steal in 20.8 minutes. With Damian Lillard (groin) expected back Wednesday, Simons could see his role diminish following Monday's tilt.
Simons (ankle) is probable for Monday's game against the Magic.
While an official confirmation regarding his availability likely won't come until closer to tipoff, it sounds like Simons is trending towards taking the court. If he plays, Simons should see steady minutes off the bench with Damian Lillard (groin) sidelined.
Simons (ankle) said that his status for Monday's game against Orlando will hinge on his ability to go through pregame warmups, Jamie Hudson of NBC Sports Northwest reports.
Simons stated that he's "leaning towards playing," indicating that he'll try to give it a go against the Magic. That said, the team has yet to make an official call either way and will likely hold off until after warmups.

Simons (ankle) is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Magic, Jamie Goldberg of The Oregonian reports.
Simons exited Saturday night's game against Atlanta with a sprained left ankle, so the Blazers will wait to see how he progresses overnight before reevaluating him at shootaround. The injury limited Simons to 16 minutes of action Saturday, as he finished with 10 points on 3-of-8 shooting.
Simons won't return to Saturday's game in Atlanta after suffering a left ankle sprain, Casey Holdahl of the Trail Blazers' official site reports.
Simons had 10 points (3-8 FT, 2-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and one rebound in 16 minutes before going down with the injury. The 20-year-old should be considered questionable for Monday's game at Orlando until the team updates his status.
Simons finished with nine points (3-11 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-2 FT), three assists, one rebound and one steal in 21 minutes during Tuesday's 118-106 loss to Boston.
Simons has been unable to make the most of what could have been a favorable situation. Despite Damian Lillard (groin) continuing to miss time, Simons has scored in double digits just once in his past five games. He is well outside the top 200 over that period, and those in standard formats should view him only as a potential streaming option, and an unreliable one at that.
Simons supplied 22 points (7-12 FG, 6-7 3Pt, 2-2 FT), seven rebounds and one assist in 28 minutes during Wednesday's 111-104 loss to the Grizzlies.
Simons finished with season highs in scoring and threes, stepping up in just his second game back from his recent concussion. If Damian Lillard (groin) isn't able to give it a go during next Friday's matchup versus the Pelicans, Simons could draw the start and make for a quality option in daily fantasy formats.
Simons (concussion) contributed nine points (2-6 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 4-4 FT), four assists and two rebounds in 19 minutes off the bench during Tuesday's 138-117 loss at New Orleans.
Simons has cracked the 20-minute mark just twice in his last eight outings, and he hasn't been able to top the 10-point plateau in nine straight games. Even if he's healthy moving forward, Simons shouldn't provide much off the bench for the Blazers outside 14-team leagues or dynasty formats.
Simons (concussion) will play in Tuesday's contest against New Orleans, Jamie Hudson of NBC Sports Northwest reports.
Simons missed Sunday's win over the Heat due to a concussion he suffered in Friday's loss against the Jazz. The second-year guard will reportedly be back and ready to take the floor Tuesday which could likely diminish teammate Gary Trent's role moving forward.
Simons (concussion) is probable for Tuesday's contest against New Orleans, Casey Holdahl of the Trail Blazers' official site reports.
Simons suffered a concussion during Friday's loss against Utah and was unable to give it a go in Sunday's win over Miami. Barring any major setbacks however, the guard appears destined to play in Tuesday's matchup with the Pelicans, as Simons is officially deemed probable.
Simons (concussion) is officially listed as out for Sunday's game against the Heat, Sean Highkin reports.
After initially being hit with the doubtful tag, it does not come as much of a surprise that Simons will be forced to sit out Sunday night's tilt against the Heat. Considering the 20-year-old does not have a clear timetable, be sure to monitor his status ahead of his next opportunity to play, which will come Tuesday against the Pelicans.
Simons (concussion) is doubtful for Sunday's matchup against the Heat, Jamie Goldberg of The Oregonian reports.
Simons suffered a concussion during Friday's loss to the Jazz, and he will likely miss his first game of the season as a result. In his stead, Gary Trent should see extra run.
Simons suffered a concussion in Friday's game against the Jazz and will not return, Jamie Hudson of NBC Sports Northwest reports.
Simons' exit and Trevor Ariza's ejection leaves the Trail Blazers with just seven healthy players in the contest. He will need to clear concussion protocol before Sunday's matchup with the heat in order to have a chance or playing.
Simons finished with four points (1-5 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT) and one assist across 15 minutes Sunday in the Trail Blazers' 139-129 win over the Pacers.
Simons' three-game run as the Blazers' starting shooting guard came to an end with C.J. McCollum (ankle) back in action. The move to the bench unsurprisingly came with a downturn in minutes, but even while he was a member of the top unit, Simons returned little value to fantasy owners who scooped him up on speculation. Over his three starts, Simons averaged just 10.7 points, 2.0 rebounds and 2.0 assists in 34.7 minutes while shooting a grisly 32.4 percent from the field.
Simons chipped in five points (2-7 FG, 1-3 3Pt), two assists, a rebound and a block in 23 minutes during the Trail Blazers' 133-125 Thursday night loss to the Mavericks.
Simons failed to reach double-digit scoring for the first time during his spell as an interim starting. C.J. McCollum reportedly went through a full assortment of drills on Wednesday, signaling that he is nearing a return. Once he does, any borderline fantasy value Simons provides will be zapped.
Simons finished with 15 points (5-16 FG, 1-9 3Pt, 4-4 FT), three assists, two blocks and two rebounds across 46 minutes Monday in the Trail Blazers' 129-124 overtime win over the Warriors.
Simons replaced the injured C.J. McCollum (ankle) in the starting five for a second straight game and was able to produce his best scoring total in nearly three weeks, but the output was somewhat disappointing, given the huge minutes he handled and high number of shots he put up. Rather than Simons or reserve wing Gary Trent -- who went off for 30 points two nights earlier -- it was Damian Lillard who capitalized the most on McCollum's absence, pouring in a franchise-record 61 points on a season-high 37 shot attempts in the win.
Simons had 12 points (4-11 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 3-3 FT), three rebounds and one assist in 35 minutes during Saturday's 119-106 loss at Oklahoma City.
Simons got the start due to C.J. McCollum's ankle injury and while he scored in double digits for the first time in his last six games, the second-year guard was badly outplayed by Gary Trent, who ended with 30 points off the bench. Simons may remain a starter if McCollum is forced to miss additional time, but he must produce at a higher level and take advantage of the opportunity if he wants to see an uptick in his value moving forward.
Simons will start Saturday's game against the Thunder, Jason Quick of The Athletic reports.
With C.J. McCollum (ankle) out, Simons will make his second start of the season. In the five games that he's seen 30-plus minutes this season, he's averaged 14.0 points, 3.4 rebounds and 3.4 assists.
Simons collected 19 points (8-15 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 1-1 FT), four rebounds and four assists in 34 minutes during Sunday's 122-111 loss to the Heat.
Simons saw extended run with C.J. McCollum (illness) sidelined and made the most of it, reaching double figures in scoring for the fourth time in his last six appearances. Simons had combined for five points across the last two contests, so this qualified as a bounce back performance for the streaky sophomore. He'll look to build on this effort during Tuesday's matchup versus the Raptors.
