      Nets' Markel Brown: Starts against Memphis on Saturday

      Brown will start at shooting guard Saturday against the Grizzlies, Andy Vasquez of The Record reports. Brown takes over for Wayne Ellington even though Brown saw just a total of 17 minutes through the first two games of the season. Ellington has only averaged 15.0 minutes per game, so Brown's promotion to the starting five may not actually come with much of a bump in playing time.

      Nets' Markel Brown: Returns to non-contact practice Wednesday

      Brown (oblique) was able to participate in the non-contact portions of Wednesday's practice, Andy Vasquez of The Record reports. Brown has dealt with his oblique injury throughout the preseason and his availability for the season opener against the Bulls on Oct. 28 stills remains questionable. Although, he's in line for limited minutes at the guard positions and his potential absence won't necessarily create unexpected playing time for his fellow teammates.

      Oblique strain will cost Nets guard Markel Brown rest of preseason

      Nets guard Markel Brown, who has been dealing with a left oblique strain for almost a week, will miss the remainder of the Nets' preseason games. Originally, Brown's oblique injury wasn't expected to threaten his availability for the start of the regular season, but his status will be updated following the preseason as his timetable for return is currently somewhat unclear. Upon Brown's eventual return to the court, he'll battle for minutes behind fellow guards Jarrett Jack and Shane Larkin as the regular season gets underway.
