The Nets could be down to 10 healthy players Wednesday vs. Miami.  The Nets have announced that Markel Brown (right ankle) and Alan Anderson (tailbone) are both doubtful.  Both traveled to Miami with the team.  Sergey Karasev, whose right knee gave out in the fourth, is out and not even in Florida.  He was last seen hobbling out of the Nets locker room on crutches Tuesday night.

With Mirza Teletovic still recovering from blood clots, that means only 10 players are completely healthy.  Of the three injuries, Karasev's is decidedly the worst.  He was diagnosed with a sprained knee after going down, but the Nets said they would subject Karasev's knee to more tests, presumably an MRI, Wednesday.  No indication yet what those tests showed.

IF Brown and Anderson are out, expect Bojan Bogdanovic to get a lot of time in the Nets backcourt.  He's played well lately, shooting 52.6 percent overall this month including 50 percent -- 9-of-18 -- from deep.
