Besides containing Davis if he plays, the Nets will attempt to return to their winning ways after a lost weekend in Charlotte and Milwaukee. Following a wild 134-132 double-overtime win over Charlotte, the Nets followed it up with a 13-point loss in Charlotte on Friday and a 129-115 loss in Milwaukee on Saturday in a game when they trailed by 26 in the third quarter.
The Nets rested D'Angelo Russell and reserve Ed Davis but lost Rondae Hollis-Jefferson to a strained groin in the first quarter. Hollis-Jefferson may sit out Wednesday but coach Kenny Atkinson said earlier this week that he did not think it was as bad as the left groin strain the forward sustained in a charity game in China in August.
"It's not a pull, it's not a tear, (it's) a strain. So that's good news," Atkinson said. "I can't give you a timetable, but it's not a huge, long process like he went through in the offseason. So I'd say the news is positive in that sense."
Jared Dudley started for Hollis-Jefferson earlier in the season and Kenneth Faried saw a bulk of the minutes Saturday by totaling 21 points and 10 rebounds in 27 minutes. >> Read More
