“A quick update about Ben Simmons, he’s doing really, really well,” Brand opened with.
“Ben is already a 2-time All-Star, a dynamic player on both ends, we’re going to encourage him to shoot and when he unlocks that part of his game, it’s going to open up for his growth, become even more unstoppable, and help our team,” added Brand. “Where he is as a player, he is very dominant, very hyper-focused on both ends to help us win, and he wants to make the right play. At times, he feels like that might not be the right play, but he’s going to grow into that.”
Whenever the season does resume, eyes will continue to be on the All-Star point guard in an effort to see how he does respond to the injury and whether he does return with a jump shot.
