When Bobby Simmons rushed home last weekend, the Nets would only say it was a personal matter. Now, with things getting better, he's willing to talk about it. His mother had taken ill and Simmons went to her side. He'll be back home Saturday for the Nets vs. the Bulls and his mom is home from the hospital as well. For Simmons, one of the few Nets playing well lately, it's still been a tough week.
