Sheffield Sharks shooting guard Jeremie Simmons is out of tonight’s BBL Championship match at Newcastle Eagles.
Simmons has a fractured wrist and is having an MRI scan today to determine any ligament damage.
The American is a crucial player in the Sharks rotation and is likely to be replaced by the in-form Nick Lewis in the starting line up.
Sharks and Newcastle are tied in second place in the BBL behind league leaders Worcester Wolves.
Tonight’s match tips-off at 7.30pm at Sport Central in Newcastle.
