The 24-year-old recovered from a nerve impingement in his lower back during the suspension of play, but he felt strong and explosive heading into the season restart at Orlando.
Between Al Horford, Matisse Thybulle, Furkan Korkmaz and Glenn Robinson III, who have all started games this season, one of them will have to step into the starting line-up in case Simmons missed and extended period of time.
The 6'10 guard has been one of the best defensive players in the league this year. Offensively he has remained producing, averaging 16.6 points, 7.8 rebounds and 8.1 assists per game.
Brett Brown's team will have to do some serious work in the game left before the playoffs start, otherwise they'd be force to face the Boston Celtics in the first round of the Eastern Conference.
"We don't know. I'm sure the club will make some announcement," Brown told reporters. "But as far as knowing more than that, I don't. Obviously I'm very curious."
