Pinson is listed as active for Saturday's game against Atlanta, Brian Lewis of the New York Post reports.
Although Pinson has seen minimal run recently, he could see some minutes against the Hawks due to Shabazz Napier (personal) being ruled out. In 12 appearances this year, the rookie guard's averaging 4.9 points, 2.5 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 14.1 minutes.
Pinson finished with 28 points (10-18 FG, 7-12 3Pt, 1-2 FT), nine rebounds, three assists and a steal in 35 minutes Sunday against the Hustle.
Pinson's team-high 28 points led the Nets to a 137-132 victory. He evidently was feeling it from beyond the arc, as he successfully converted on seven of 12 attempts on the day. The North Carolina product has been playing at a high level throughout this season in the G League, posting averages of 20.6 points, 6.0 rebounds, 6.2 assists and 1.0 steal in 28 starts. If Pinson keeps it up, there's little doubt he'll get a shot with an NBA team at some point.
For the third time in the Nets' past six games, Pinson cracked 20 minutes and flirted with a double-double off the bench. Pinson's recent surge in production has given him some short-term value in very deep formats, but he'll likely be out of the rotation and back in the G League once the Nets reclaim some health on the wing. Joe Harris (hip) is day and day and could be back in action Wednesday against the Nuggets, while both Allen Crabbe (knee) and Caris LeVert (foot) could return from long-term absences to play at some point before the All-Star break.
Pinson will be sent to the G League for Friday's game and then be recalled ahead of Brooklyn's contest against the Magic on Saturday, Brian Lewis of the New York Post reports.
Pinson has gotten some spot run for the Nets, and has totaled 41 points, 19 rebounds, 15 assists and three steals in 124 total minutes across nine appearances. Still, he'll presumably continue spending most of his time in the G League.
Pinson led the Nets to a win with career highs in scoring and rebounding in just his eighth NBA game, receiving extra playing time with Allen Crabbe (knee) and Spencer Dinwiddie (thumb) out. The strong performance and front court injuries may lead to more NBA action for Pinson, but it's unlikely he becomes a consistent contributor this season.
