Nets' Rondae Hollis-Jefferson: Returns to action after ankle injury, plays limited minutes
Hollis-Jefferson (ankle) scored seven points (3-7 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 1-2 FT) and added two rebounds, two blocks, one assist, and one steal in 17 minutes off the bench during Thursday's 111-93 loss to the Bucks.
Hollis-Jefferson saw limited action in his return from an ankle sprain. It seems as though they are easing him back gradually, as he did not not start Thursday, and he did not play despite being technically available Tuesday. Other than the game when he sustained his sprained ankle, which caused him to leave early, Thursday marked the fewest minute Hollis-Jefferson has played all season. When he returns to full duty, he is likely to return to his starting role that saw him averaging 25.5 minutes per game during the first 13 games of the season.
