"I tried to go out there and not [make] too many mistakes," Teletovic said. "I guess I made some. I realize that when you come back after three months everything is new to you."
Teletovic was sidelined for three months after being diagnosed with blood clots. Coach Lionel Hollins said he wasn't on the court enough Wednesday to make an impact either way.
"There was nothing to evaluate," Hollins said. "If he’d made two shots, I would say he made two shots that really helped us. But he wasn’t out there long enough to do anything else."
Teletovic averaged 8.5 points and 4.8 rebounds during the regular season. He'll likely be in line for limited action in Game 3 against the Hawks Saturday.
Teletovic hasn't played since January due to blood clots in his lungs, and he expects his stamina to need some adjustment once he enters Wednesday's game.
"I'm 100 percent sure it's going to be tough," Teletovic said, per Newsday. "The first three, four minutes is going to be a hell of a ride."
Teletovic played 40 games during the regular season, averaging 8.5 points and 4.8 rebounds.
Teletovic has not played since late January after he was diagnosed with blood clots in his lungs. He has been on blood thinners, but he was able to practice Monday.
The Nets are 9 1/2-point underdogs for Wednesday's game at Atlanta.
Teletovic has been out since late January due to blood clots that developed in his lungs. He's been on blood thinners, though recent blood analysis came back as normal. He's been cleared for basketball activities.
"I feel pretty good," Teletovic said, via NorthJersey.com. "I mean, people think that I’ve been sitting the last three months. I didn’t really. Like after the first three weeks I was out I started working out and I’m in pretty good shape for now."
It still seems unlikely he'll be able to play against the Hawks in Game 2 on Wednesday.
“Now it’s more up to coaches,” Teletovic said. “Because they have the team they play for the last three months and they’ve been functioning pretty good and now if they don’t me to be lagging kind of behind or something like that. So, i mean, it’s their decision. I think they know what they’re doing.”
Teletovic has been on blood thinners, and doctors said, "follow-up testing has met our expectations. The most recent bloodwork was normal," per NBA.com.
The Nets still intend to list Teletovic as "out" for their playoff games for the forseeable future.
