Claxton (COVID-19 health and safety protocols) recorded two rebounds and no other statistics in five minutes off the bench during Tuesday's 124-118 loss to the Bucks.

Per Malika Andrews of ESPN.com, Nets head coach Steve Nash said prior to Tuesday's contest that Claxton would likely be used sparingly while needing more time to ramp up from his recent COVID-19-related absence, but the second-year center surprisingly picked up some run in a competitive contest. That said, Claxton was only on the court for a brief stint, and his minutes are expected to remain low while he gets his conditioning in order after having not played in any of the previous eight contests. The Nets appear comfortable proceeding with Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan as their primary options at center for the time being.
