Rondae Hollis-Jefferson working on his shot with Coach David Nurse

New, comments

In the good news department for the Brooklyn Nets, rookie Rondae Hollis-Jefferson is back to getting work in at practice, and is currently working on his jump shot with the Nets new shooting coach, David Nurse.

Hollis-Jefferson has been out of action for the Nets since December 4, after he suffered a fracture in his ankle. The good news is that, as of earlier in the week, he's back at practice and getting in some work. There's no definitive timetable for his return, as of yet, but it seems to be getting closer.

And the better news seems to be that the Nets are looking toward developing their young players, seeing as they bought out both Andrea Bargnani and Joe Johnson in order to make minutes for some of the younger guys -- including players like Sean Kilpatrick, who is on his second 10-day contract with the Nets.

Hollis-Jefferson's return seems near, but don't expect the Nets to rush him. After all, he's a big part of their future, and they need to make sure that first and foremost they continue to find ways to develop his game.
