The Nets on Wednesday tweeted out an update on the injury Rondae Hollis-Jefferson suffered while playing in Jeremy Lin’s “Hoop for Hope” charity game in Shenzhen, China, this weekend.
Rondae Hollis-Jefferson has been diagnosed with a left adductor strain after sustaining the injury while playing in an exhibition game in China. Hollis-Jefferson will begin rehabilitation immediately.— Brooklyn Nets (@BrooklynNets) August 9, 2018
An adductor strain, basically a strained hip muscle, is a common sport injury and rehab can take from a few weeks to six weeks. Nets training camp opens September 26 which is seven weeks away.
The Nets forward hurt himself on a dunk attempt prior to the game which also featured Spencer Dinwiddie and Joe Tsai, the Nets new minority owner. NetsDaily first reported the injury. Here’s video of what happened...
He did not return to the floor and didn’t appear for the post-game photo. The Nets flew RHJ back to New York where he underwent tests.
