Nets' Nicolas Claxton: Undergoes shoulder surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Claxton will miss the resumption of the 2019-20 season after undergoing arthroscopic labrum repair surgery on his left shoulder Wednesday, Anthony Puccio of reports.

The 21-year-old appeared in one of Brooklyn's final 19 games prior to the shutdown, spending most of his time in the G League. Still, the injury hurts the team's frontcourt depth as it looks to secure its place in the playoffs. Claxton is expected to be fully recovered by the start of training camp for the 2020-21 campaign.

Nets' Nicolas Claxton: Recalled by parent club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Claxton will join Brooklyn ahead of Monday's game against the Lakers.

Claxton will rejoin the Nets after an extended stretch in the G League. He's unlikely to play too large a role, considering that he's averaged just 12.5 minutes across 15 appearances at the NBA level this year; moreover, the Nets' frontcourt is relatively injury-free at the moment.

Nets' Nicolas Claxton: Drops 34 in G League
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Claxton produced 34 points (10-16 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 6-7 FT), nine rebounds and four assists in 28 minutes during Wednesday's game against Delaware.

Claxton had a fantastic outing, scoring at will from all areas of the floor and barely missing out on a double-double. Across six G League games, Claxton's averaging 14.2 points, 7.0 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 1.7 blocks in just 18.0 minutes per contest. Given his superb play, there's a good chance that Claxton could rejoin his NBA parent club in the near future.

Nets' Nicolas Claxton: Leads way off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Claxton generated 19 points (8-9 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 1-1 FT), seven rebounds and four blocks in 22 minutes during Monday's win over Greensboro.

Claxton has been electric coming out of the All-Star break, scoring 40 points on 16-of-19 shooting over the past two contests. While he recently has lost his rotation spot in Brooklyn, he's more than proved his talent against his ill-equipped G League opponents. Across five G League games, Claxton's averaging 15.0 points, 6.6 rebounds and 1.8 blocks in just 16.6 minutes.

Nets' Nicolas Claxton: Double-doubles in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Claxton generated 21 points (8-10 FG, 3-4 FT), 12 rebounds, three blocks, two steals and one assist in 19 minutes during Friday's win over Lakeland.

Claxton dominated during his 19 minutes of run, finishing with a plus-34 net rating on the night. Although he's struggled to find minutes on the NBA level, Claxton appears to be head and shoulder above other G League players. In four games with Long Island, he's posting 14.0 points, 6.5 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 1.3 blocks in just 15.2 minutes per contest.

Nets' Nicolas Claxton: Heads to G League
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Brooklyn assigned Claxton to the G League's Long Island Nets on Wednesday, Alex Schiffer of The Athletic reports.

The rookie is expected to be in line for a brief stint at Long Island, as the organization just wants to give him the chance to pick up some extra reps following the NBA All-Star break. With both Jarrett Allen and DeAndre Jordan healthy heading into the second half, Claxton isn't expected to have a regular spot in coach Kenny Atkinson's rotation once he returns to Brooklyn.

Nets' Nicolas Claxton: Left out of rotation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Claxton (coach's decision) didn't see the court during Monday's 119-97 win over the Suns.

Claxton was a healthy scratch for the fourth straight contest. With DeAndre Jordan back from his brief injury absence and splitting the center minutes with Jarrett Allen, Claxton has become an afterthought in the rotation.

Nets' Nicolas Claxton: Available Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Claxton (shoulder) is good to go for Saturday's game against the Pistons.

Claxton will wind up missing just one game with a shoulder bruise. With DeAndre Jordan (finger) ruled out, Claxton lines up as the primary backup center behind Jarrett Allen.

Nets' Nicolas Claxton: Questionable against Pistons
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Claxton (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Saturday's game in Detroit, Greg Logan of Newsday reports.

Claxton bruised his shoulder Monday against the Sixers and wound up missing Thursday's game against the Lakers. With DeAndre Jordan (finger) also questionable Saturday, the Nets' center rotation behind Jarrett Allen remains unclear.

Nets' Nicolas Claxton: Unavailable Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Claxton (shoulder) has been ruled out Thursday against the Lakers.

Claxton injured his shoulder during Monday's loss to the Sixers and will miss at least one game as he recovers. With DeAndre Jordan (finger) also unavailable, the Nets will be thin at center behind Jarrett Allen.

January 22, 2020 05:16 PM
Nets' Nicolas Claxton: Downgraded to doubtful
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Claxton (shoulder) is doubtful for Thursday's game against the Lakers.

Claxton is trending towards missing Thursday's game after suffering a left shoulder contusion on a hard fall during Monday's loss to the 76ers. His status should clear up closer to tip-off. The Nets could be thin at center if Claxton and DeAndre Jordan, who is questionable with a dislocated finger, are both unable to play.

Nets' Nicolas Claxton: Added to injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Claxton (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Lakers.

Claxton landed hard on his shoulder during Monday's loss to the Sixers, and though he was able to play through the issue, the big man is now dealing with some residual soreness. Brooklyn figures to wait and see how Claxton is feeling during warmups before confirming his availability for Thursday's tilt. The rookie is averaging 14.5 points, 5.0 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 1.5 blocks across 18.0 minutes over his past two games, both of which came with DeAndre Jordan (finger) sidelined.

Nets' Nicolas Claxton: Steps up again in Jordan's absence
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Claxton put up 15 points (6-8 FG, 1-2 3Pt, 2-3 FT), four rebounds and two assists in 17 minutes Monday in the Nets' 117-111 loss to the 76ers.

With DeAndre Jordan (finger) sidelined, Claxton held down backup center duties and reached double figures on efficient shooting for the second game in a row. Notably, the three-point bucket was the first of Claxton's career, and if he's able to maintain effective from distance in his subsequent opportunities, he may have a shot at sticking around in the rotation as an option at power forward once Jordan is back in action. Jordan isn't expected back for Thursday's game against the Lakers, so at the very least, Claxton should get one more chance to serve as Jarrett Allen's understudy.

Nets' Nicolas Claxton: Scores 14 points in 19 minutes
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Claxton had 14 points (7-12 FG), six rebounds, three blocks and one assist in 19 minutes off the bench during Saturday's 117-97 loss to the Bucks.

After recently getting over a hamstring injury that sidelined him for multiple weeks, Claxton made just his second appearance of the month Saturday, with his previous work with the Nets coming in garbage time of a 101-89 loss to Orlando back on Jan. 6. The absence of DeAndre Jordan (finger) opened up a more extended opportunity for Claxton, who turned in a stellar all-around showing as a member of the Nets' second unit. Expect him to operate as Jarrett Allen's top backup so long as Jordan is sidelined, but the rookie will presumably drop back out of the rotation once Brooklyn is back at full strength.

Nets' Nicolas Claxton: Sent to G League
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Claxton was assigned to the G League on Friday. Alex Schiffer of The Athletic reports.

Claxton was cleared of the hamstring injury at the start of the week but saw garbage-time action in his two games with the team. The 20-year-old will have a much better chance to get reacclimated to game speed with the Long Island Nets.

Nets' Nicolas Claxton: Plays garbage time in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Claxton (hamstring) played the final 1:32 of Monday's 101-89 loss to the Magic, missing his only field-goal attempt and accruing no other statistics.

Orlando had the game well in hand as the clock winded down in the fourth quarter, allowing Nets coach Kenny Atkinson to empty the bench and give Claxton some run in garbage time. The brief appearance was Claxton's first since Nov. 27 after a hamstring injury had sidelined him for more than a month. With Jarrett Allen and DeAndre Jordan both healthy and entrenched as the top two centers on the depth chart, Claxton isn't expected to see much action in competitive games in what remains of his rookie campaign.

Nets' Nicolas Claxton: Active Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Claxton (hamstring) is active for Monday's contest against Orlando, Brian Lewis of the New York Post reports.

It'll be the first time that the rookie will be available since logging 18 minutes against Boston on Nov. 27, as the forward has been dealing with a hampering hamstring injury. Claxton is currently posting 3.0 points and 2.4 rebounds through nine appearances with the Nets this year.

January 5, 2020 04:52 PM
Nets' Nicolas Claxton: Likely back Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Claxton (hamstring) is probable for Monday's game against the Magic, Greg Logan of Newsday reports.

The 20-year-old missed the last 16 games with the lingering hamstring injury, but he's primed to make his return Monday in Orlando. Claxton averaged 13.2 minutes in nine NBA appearances prior to the injury, so any minutes restriction is unlikely to limit his opportunities.

Nets' Nicolas Claxton: Could return next week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Claxton's lingering hamstring injury isn't considered serious, and the Nets are hopeful he can return to game action in a week or two, Alex Schiffer of The Athletic reports.

Brooklyn has already ruled Claxton out in advance of Thursday's game in Dallas, and Schiffer's report suggests the rookie won't be an option for Saturday's home tilt with the Raptors either. Considering Claxton hasn't appeared in a game at any level in more than a month and was a fringe rotation option for Brooklyn when healthy, he'll likely be eased back into competitive action with the G League's Long Island Nets.

Nets' Nicolas Claxton: Won't play Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Claxton (hamstring) has been ruled out for Thursday's game at Dallas, Alex Schiffer of The Athletic reports.

Claxton will miss his 15th straight game with the left hamstring injury. The 20-year-old remains without an official timeline for his return.
