The decision was a no-brainer for Brooklyn, which will essentially pay Kilpatrick the minimum salary in 2017-18, an excellent deal for a player who appeared in 70 games last season. While Kilpatrick may not be in the team's long-term plans, he figures to again be a key bench piece as the Nets move forth with their lengthy rebuilding process.
Kilpatrick (hamstring) will sit out both Monday's game against the Celtics and Wednesday's game against the Bulls, Brian Lews of the New York Post reports.
Kilpatrick has missed the last two games with a left hamstring injury and with the Nets already eliminated from playoff contention, they'll shut down Kilpatrick for the remainder of the season. He finished the season playing in 70 games, including 24 starts, posting averages of 13.1 points, 4.0 rebounds and 2.2 assists across 25.1 minutes. Kilpatrick's $1.5 million contract for the 2017-18 is not guaranteed, so there's a chance he's not with the Nets next season.
Kilpatrick (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Celtics.
Kilpatrick has missed the last two contests already for the Nets, so his questionable designation heading into Monday brings him in danger of extending that streak. We should see his status update after the team's morning shootaround on Monday, but with the Nets already ruled out of playoff contention, they could take a cautious approach with Kilpatrick and shut him down for the final few games of the season.
Kilpatrick (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Saturday's game against the Bulls.
Kilpatrick ended up sitting out Thursday's game against the Magic due to the tight left hamstring, the same injury that had sidelined him for seven games in March. Given the recurring nature of the injury along with the fact that the Nets are playing out the string on another losing season, Kilpatrick likely won't be cleared to play Saturday unless he's deemed 100 percent healthy following the team's morning shootaround. Expect an official update on his status in the hours leading up to the 5:00 p.m. EST tip off.
Kilpatrick (hamstring) will be sidelined for Thursday's game against the Magic, Greg Logan of Newsday reports.
Kilpatrick is likely dealing with an aggravation of the same left hamstring injury that sidelined him for seven games earlier in March, and with little at stake for this late-season game between two non-playoff teams, it's not too surprising the reserve guard will be sidelined. Some combination of Isaiah Whitehead (ankle), Spencer Dinwiddie and Archie Goodwin figures to absorb Kilpatrick's workload.
