Ben Simmons finished with 57.1 percent shooting and three rebounds shy of a triple-double. He’s shot well in his last four games, connecting on 26 of his last 33 attempts.

The LSU product has also started his team’s last two games, and it appears he will continue to do so in the future.

Both Ben Simmons and Kevin Durant will be available for Wednesday’s game against the Raptors.

After winning two straight games, the Hawks were defeated 124-122 in overtime at Atlanta on Saturday. With a couple of days rest, the Raptors will try to avoid falling below.500 and avenge an early season loss to the Brooklyn Nets.

Pascal Siakam (groin) is expected to return to the Raptors lineup next week.

Siakam appears to be on the mend after suffering a groin injury in early November. Siakam is expected to be re-evaluated next week, at which point it should be clear when the star forward will be able to return to the court.

Scottie Barnes (left knee sprain) and Dalano Banton (ankle) have been listed as questionable for Wednesday’s game against the Nets.
