Musa finished the loss Friday with 34 points (11-22 FG, 5-10 3Pt, 7-8 FT), seven assists, six rebounds and a blocked shot.
Friday's performance set a season high for Musa with Long Island, as the forward has played in 33 games in the G League this season. The 20-year-old is averaging 18.9 points, 6.3 rebounds and 3.5 assists in the 2018-19 campaign.
Musa will practice with the G League on Thursday, Ben Nadeau of Basketball Insiders reports.
Musa hasn't appeared in a game since Feb. 4, and the organization will opt to get him some practice time in the G League. It's unclear if he'll be thrown into the rotation this season.
The transaction likely means that Musa will be available for Monday's game against the Spurs, though it's not expected the rookie will crack coach Kenny Atkinson's already-crowded rotation. Musa has suited up in just eight games at the NBA level in his inaugural campaign and has averaged just 4.3 minutes in those contests.
Musa registered 30 points (11-19 FG, 6-12 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 11 rebounds, six assists and two steals in 35 minutes Saturday against Westchester.
Musa put together a spectacular performance, knocking down six treys on the day while also notching a double-double. His team would suffer a 134-130 loss in double overtime despite outscoring the Knicks 38-29 in the first quarter. Musa has been a stud so far this season, averaging 19.8 points, 6.7 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 1.0 steal through 21 starts in the G League this year.
Long Island doesn't play until Thursday, so it's possible that Musa is merely heading to the affiliate for extra practice time before rejoining the NBA team ahead of its matchup Wednesday with the Nuggets. After missing more than a month with a dislocated left shoulder, Musa played eight minutes off the bench for the Nets in Monday's loss to the Bucks in what amounted to his first appearance at the NBA level since Dec. 1.
