When the Nets play the Timberwolves on Saturday night at 9 p.m., they will be without Rondae Hollis-Jefferson (groin) and D'Angelo Russell (rest), via Alex Labidou of the Nets.
Hollis-Jefferson is averaging 14.3 points on 47 percent shooting with 6.5 rebounds and 2.5 assists per game, all career highs.
Russell is averaging 17.3 points on 44 percent shooting with 3.7 rebounds and 4.7 assists per game. He's played in 16 games total this season, with his last four coming off the bench in his return from injury. He's averaging 16 minutes since his return.
The guard returned against the Heat on January 19 after missing 32 games with a knee injury. After the game, he said he was pleased with his return.
"That was the main test, so getting the opportunity to go out there and be with my teammates again was great," Russell said, via Brian Lewis of NY Post. "Limited minutes, but it was great, just being out there in general. All numbers aside, I don't know how you want to put it, but just being out there was really my main focus."
