From our game preview...

Injuries: No Ben Simmons, Dennis Smith Jr. or Lonnie Walker IV. Two-ways Jalen Wilson and Armoni Brooks joined the Nets in Sacramento last night after playing for the Long Island Nets yesterday afternoon.

Malik Monk is questionable with an illness. Colby Jones is questionable with lower back soreness. Alex Len is out with a right high ankle sprain.

The Game: The test will begin at the center position. Domantas Sabonis has been magnificent ever since he came over from the Indiana Pacers. Sabonis has worked as the fulcrum of Mike Brown’s attack and his ability to make the right pass allows the Kings to hurt you in a bunch of ways. He’s also a bear on the glass and is seventh in offensive rebounding (fourth in total rebounding). This will make for a fun matchup against Nic Claxton. Clax continues to be excellent on both sides of the ball, and Brooklyn will count on him to patrol the paint and battle Sabonis all game long.
