Bucks’ Simmons improving

Milwaukee, WI (Sports Network) – The Milwaukee Bucks announced that Bobby
Simmons’ injured right heel is improving, but the forward is still scheduled
to remain on the shelf for the time being.

Team physicians conducted a scheduled one-month evaluation of the injury and
indicated that Simmons will continue with rehabilitation. He is expected to
return to the court in the next three to four weeks.

The swingman originally suffered the injury in training camp and has been
sidelined since October 14.

The 26-yard old Simmons averaged 13.4 points and 4.4 rebounds in 2005-2006,
his first season with Milwaukee. In five career seasons, with the Bucks, Los
Angeles Clippers and Washington Wizards, Simmons has tallied 10.7 points and
4.3 rebounds per game.
