Shortly after the Nets heartbreaking loss to the Raptors in Orlando, the team announced that Joe Harris was leaving the team because of a “non-medical, personal reason”

The team statement was brief...

Joe Harris has left the NBA Campus in Orlando due to a non-medical personal matter. The status of his return will be updated as information becomes available.

Minutes later, Adrian Wojnarowski reported Harris’ return is improbable...

The Nets did not provide any details regarding Harris departure, including where he was headed. Players who leave the “bubble” can return following a quarantine that can last as little as four days up to a maximum of ten. He would have to test negative for the coronavirus multiple times during his quarantine before being permitted back on the court.

On Thursday, Jacque Vaughn and teammates confirmed it was a family issue. Vaughn said that Harris will not play in either Game 3 or 4.

In the Raptors game, Harris scored 14 points and grabbed 14 rebounds and was on the court at game’s end.
