Brooklyn Nets guard Rondae Hollis-Jefferson told the media on Monday he may be shut down for the remainder of the season. In a strange turn of events, he was shortly thereafter listed as probable for Tuesday's game against Charlotte, according to Brian Lewis of the NY Post.

Hollis-Jefferson, 21, has missed 50 games this season after suffering a fractured posterior talus in his right ankle on Dec. 5.

The Nets rookie is preparing himself for either decision that will come down from the Brooklyn front office.

Brooklyn Nets guard Rondae Hollis-Jefferson does not have a set timeframe for his return from an ankle injury, according to the New York Post's Brian Lewis.

Hollis-Jefferson underwent surgery from an ankle injury on Dec. 9 and has progressed well, however Lewis said there is no update for when the rookie is expected to return to the court.

"I'm not sure when [his return's] going to be, but he's putting in the work and he's obviously trying to get himself in better conditioning so that we can put him out there on the floor," interim coach Tony Brown told Lewis. "But he's doing all the necessary work. Even though he hasn't played in the games, he's doing all the work to get himself ready.

NEW YORK (AP) -- Stephen Curry scored 16 of his 28 points in the third quarter and the Golden State Warriors ran their NBA-record start to 22-0 by beating the Brooklyn Nets 114-98 on Sunday night.

Draymond Green added 22 points, nine rebounds and seven assists. Klay Thompson scored 21 for the Warriors, who won their 26th in a row overall in the regular season, one behind the 2012-13 Miami Heat for the second-longest streak in NBA history.

Coming off consecutive 40-point games, Curry was having a relatively quiet and even puzzling night - he missed his first three free throws - before helping the Warriors regain control against a team that nearly beat them this season and looked capable of finishing the job this time.
