Nets' Edmond Sumner: Questionable Wednesday
Sumner is considered questionable to suit up for Wednesday's contest versus the Hornets due to a right glute contusion.
The fact that Sumner is questionable for Wednesday is a good sign after he was immediately ruled out from the previous contest. If he's available, Sumner should return to a contributing role off the bench.... See More ... See Less
Nets' Yuta Watanabe: Could return Friday or Saturday
Watanabe (hamstring) is doing three-on-three work and is hopeful to play Friday against the Hawks or Saturday against the Pacers, Nick Friedell of ESPN.com reports.
The forward hasn't played since Nov. 20 but is on the verge of a return. When available, he's been a stable force for Brooklyn, mainly due to his career-best efficiency from the field (60.9 percent) and three (57.1). Expect him to be eased back into the rotation when he's cleared to play.... See More ... See Less
Nets' Ben Simmons: Plans to return Friday
Simmons (knee) is planning to return for Friday's game against the Hawks, Chris Milholen of NetsDaily.com reports.
Simmons will miss a fourth straight game Wednesday against the Hornets but should be back Friday against the Hawks. He may be on a minutes limit in his first game back, which may include coming off the bench. Simmons' return will presumably mean fewer minutes for Edmond Sumner, Joe Harris, Cam Thomas and others. Yuta Watanabe (hamstring) may also return Friday. Despite some early-season struggles, Simmons is ranked in the top 100 in eight-category leagues on a per-game basis. He's shooting a career-high 61.4 percent from the field.... See More ... See Less
Nets' Day'Ron Sharpe: Sent to G League
Brooklyn assigned Sharpe to the G League's Long Island Nets on Monday, Chris Milholen of NetsDaily.com reports.
Sharpe had been battling an illness but returned to action Friday against Boston, totaling three points and three rebounds in two minutes. Long Island plays Delaware on Monday night, so expect Sharpe to garner a sizable role during that contest.... See More ... See Less
Nets' Kessler Edwards: Sent back to G League
Edwards was assigned to the G League's Long Island Nets on Monday, Chris Milholen of NetsDaily.com reports.
Edwards was called up by Brooklyn on Friday, but he played just two minutes during his time with the parent club. He'll be available for Long Island's game against Delaware on Monday and should see more run in the G League.... See More ... See Less
Nets' Nicolas Claxton: Grabs 14 rebounds in loss
Claxton provided nine points (4-5 FG, 1-6 FT), 14 rebounds, one assist, two blocks and one steal over 38 minutes during Sunday's 103-92 loss to the Celtics.
Claxton pulled down 14 rebounds Sunday, matching his highest total in a game this season. While he just missed a double-double Sunday, he's averaging one over his last seven games, as he's scored 12.3 points and grabbed 10.6 boards per game in that span. He missed five of his six free-throw attempts Sunday and has now made just 43.1 percent of his tries this year.... See More ... See Less
Nets' Kevin Durant: Team-high 31 points Sunday
Durant closed with 31 points (13-24 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 4-5 FT), seven rebounds, five assists, two blocks and two steals over 40 minutes during Sunday's 103-92 loss to the Celtics.
Durant led the Nets in scoring again Sunday and was the only player to score more than 18 points. He logged 12 of his 31 points in the third quarter as Brooklyn cut a 12-point halftime deficit down to six points. The 34-year-old has scored at least 30 points in five of his last six games and is averaging 33.2 points per contest while making 60.5 percent of his shot attempts in that span.... See More ...

Nets' Edmond Sumner: Out Sunday
Sumner (glute) will not take the floor Sunday against the Celtics, Chris Milholen of NetsDaily.com reports.
Sumner suffered a right glute contusion in Wednesday's game, causing him to exit the contest prematurely and remain out Sunday. Patty Mills and Cam Thomas will likely see larger workloads in his absence. Sumner's next opportunity to play will come Wednesday against the Hornets.... See More ... See Less
Nets' Seth Curry: Struggles with turnovers again
Curry closed Friday's 114-105 victory over the Raptors with four points (1-5 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), one rebound and five assists over 20 minutes.
Curry has gone ice cold. He's 2-for-13 from the field and 1-for-6 from deep over the past three games while combining for eight turnovers -- a terrible mark for a primarily catch-and-shoot player. Joe Harris has looked much better during this three-game stretch -- 16.0 points on 55/52/100 shooting -- and coach Jacque Vaughn may end up rolling with who's hot in any given game.... See More ...

Nets' T.J. Warren: Makes first appearance since 2020
Warren (foot) logged 17 minutes off the bench and recorded 10 points (5-11 FG, 0-2 3Pt), four rebounds and one steal in Friday's 114-105 win over the Raptors.
Playing in his first NBA game in nearly two years, Warren was on a playing-time restriction Friday, but he might not see his minutes push much higher anyway on the occasions Kevin Durant, Ben Simmons (knee) and Nicolas Claxton are available in the frontcourt. The Nets will look to Warren to provide a scoring boost off the second unit, a role he filled effectively Friday during his limited time on the court.... See More ... See Less
Nets' Kyrie Irving: Strong start to December
Irving contributed 27 points (10-17 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 5-7 FT), five rebounds, five assists and two steals in 39 minutes during Friday's 114-105 win over the Raptors.
Irving hit the 20-point mark for the seventh straight game, and he shot efficiently from the field. He also contributed across the board, producing slightly above his season average in rebounds (4.1) and assists (4.3). Kevin Durant and Iriving continue to serve as a dangerous scoring duo for this Nets team, and the latter is averaging 24.8 points through 16 contests to go along with Durant's 29.8 points per game....

Nets' Royce O'Neale: Does damage from three
O'Neale finished with 11 points (4-9 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 0-2 FT), eight rebounds, four assists and one steal in 32 minutes during Friday's 114-105 win over Toronto.
O'Neale scored in double figures for the first time since Nov. 23, scoring nine of his 11 points from downtown. Friday's shooting performance was a welcome sight for fantasy managers, as O'Neale had struggled to 2-for-12 shooting from three in his previous three matchups. O'Neale is averaging 9.8 points, 5.3 rebounds, 4.7 assists and 1.2 steals in 24 contests this season.... See More ... See Less
Nets' Nicolas Claxton: Falls just shy of double-double
Claxton closed Friday's 114-105 win over the Raptors with 15 points (7-9 FG, 1-2 FT), nine rebounds, one assist and three blocks over 31 minutes.
Claxton enjoyed an excellent shooting night and nearly registered his second double-double in three games. The Georgia product has attempted 10 or more field goals in only one of his last eight matchups, but he typically makes the most of his scoring chances, finishing in double figures in seven of those contests. Claxton has also been making his presence known on the defensive end of late, averaging 2.6 blocks over this eight-game stretch.... See More ... See Less
Nets' Joe Harris: Remains locked in
Harris totaled 17 points (6-8 FG, 5-7 3Pt), five rebounds and four assists over 25 minutes before fouling out of Friday's 114-105 win over the Raptors.
Harris scored in double figures for the third straight contest and also secured five rebounds for the second consecutive game. He scored 15 of his 17 points from beyond the arc, as three-point shooting continues to be one of the key strengths of his game. While Harris has struggled at times from deep in November, he's knocked down 11 of his last 21 tries from downtown in his last three games.... See More ... See Less
