Trailblazers forward Cliff Alexander will be out for a couple of weeks with a bone bruise, coach Terry Stotts said Saturday, Joe Freeman of The Oregonian reports.
Alexander underwent an MRI on Friday, which revealed an aliment in his left knee. The undrafted, once top-5 recruit in the class of 2014 is looking to find a spot on the Blazers roster after having a disappointing freshman season at Kansas Jayhawks .
Alexander averaged 7.5 points, 6.4 rebounds, 1.2 blocks, 0.3 assists, and 0.1 steals in 23 minutes per game through 11 summer league games with the Brooklyn Nets , which was enough for the Blazers to offer him a contract.
He has reportedly played well thus far in training camp and very well could find his way on to a dismantled Portland team in need of some front-court depth after losing LaMarcus Aldridge , Robin Lopez , and Joel Freeland this offseason.
Brooklyn Nets guard Markel Brown strained his left oblique during practice Thursday, per Rob Boone of Newsday.
The injury could sideline Brown for a few days, but unless the Nets paint a more serious picture regarding the ailment, the guard should be ready to go for the start of the regular season.
Even with Deron Williams moving over to Dallas, however, Brown still finds himself as the low man on the depth chart at point guard.
Brooklyn Nets guard Sergey Karasev (knee) participated fully in Wednesday's practice, Newsday's Rob Boone reports.
The Nets gave Karasev a recovery day Thursday, but that was likely just a precaution with the swingman working his way back from the dislocated patella and torn MCL in his right knee that ended his 2014-15 campaign prematurely.
Karasev's participation in full practice demonstrates that his knee is fully healthy at this point, but that might not be enough to keep Karasav from plunging further down the Nets' depth chart on the wing this season. After the Nets added Wayne Ellington and Rondae Hollis-Jefferson to their roster in the offseason, Karasev could have difficulty replicating the 16.8 minutes per game he averaged a year ago.
Lionel Hollins called 2015-16 a "redshirt year" for Brooklyn Nets forward Chris McCullough (knee), per Josh Newman of the Asbury Park Press.
The rookie is still recovering from a torn ACL sustained in January and is not expected to be ready for full contact until after the first of the year. However, even once McCullough is healthy, Hollins' comments would seem to suggest that McCullough is not expected to play much of a role this season.
With Deron Williams now in Dallas, Jarrett Jack is positioned to start at point guard, while Bogdanovic and Johnson fill out the two starting spots on the wing.
Wayne Ellington and first-rounder Rondae Hollis-Jefferson will likely serve as the top reserves on the wing, but neither should represent serious threats to Bogdanovic's minutes load.
The 6-foot-8 Serbian saw his playing time pick up as the season wore on last season, finishing with 34.3 minutes per contest in the Nets' six-game first-round playoff loss to the Hawks.
Bogdanovic doesn't offer enough production in most categories to warrant a ton of fantasy intrigue, but if he's able to improve on last year's 35.5 percent shooting rate on 3-pointers, he could emerge as a double-digit scorer for the Nets.
