WHO: Brooklyn Nets (16-21) at Cleveland Cavaliers (21-15)
WHEN: 2:00 PM ET
WHERE: YES Network (TV); NBA TV; WFAN-FM (Radio)
Injuries: Day’Ron Sharpe is out at least two weeks after hyperextending his knee in Sunday’s game. No Ben Simmons. He spoke to the assembled media on site, and we did a story about it. His agent, Bernie Lee, spoke to NetsDaily as well.
Darius Garland is out after fracturing his jaw. Evan Mobley is out after undergoing knee surgery. Ty Jerome is out with a right ankle sprain.
The Game: For Brooklyn, this game represents a great opportunity to bounce back and get on the good foot. Losing winnable games is always a bummer, and for a Nets team that has been in the dumps for the better part of a month, they can’t afford to take too many losses as we draw closer to the deadline. For a lot of the Nets players, the journey to this point has been long and winding. It’s a difficult road, but they’re sticking together and doing their best to support each other throughout this process.
