  • Nets' Dennis Schroder: Struggles off bench Thursday

    Schroder recorded four points (1-7 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 1-2 FT), two rebounds and two assists in 23 minutes during Thursday's 121-93 loss to Toronto.

    Schroder reprised his bench role Thursday with Ben Simmons returning to the starting lineup. Schroder struggled in the loss as he missed six of his seven field-goal attempts and finished the game tied with Mikal Bridges for the worst point differential of minus-30. Schroder is capable of producing more on the offensive side of the floor, but his opportunities will be limited in games in which he comes off the pine.

  • Nets' Mikal Bridges: Leads Brooklyn in scoring Thursday

    Bridges ended Thursday's 121-93 loss to the Raptors with 21 points (7-16 FG, 4-10 3Pt, 3-4 FT), four rebounds, one assist and one steal across 35 minutes.

    It was a tough scoring night for the Nets in their first game with interim head coach Kevin Ollie, especially from three as the team shot just 29.7 percent from beyond the arc. Bridges for his part contributed four of Brooklyn's 11 three-point makes as the young star out of Villanova paced the team in the scoring category. Over eight games in February, Bridges has averaged 20.3 points, 3.6 rebounds and 3.5 assists on 43.3 percent shooting, including 38.4 percent from three.

  • Nets' Ben Simmons: Does little in return

    Simmons notched two points (1-2 FG, 0-1 FT), four rebounds and four assists over 21 minutes during Thursday's 121-93 loss to the Raptors.

    Simmons missed the final game heading into the All-Star break to rest his knee, and he didn't do much in his return Thursday. He isn't a high-volume shooter but will typically contribute in other ways in the box score while taking a back seat in the scoring department. Simmons has scored in double digits just once since his return January 29.

  • Nets' Ben Simmons: Starting Thursday

    Simmons will return to the starting lineup for Thursday's game against the Raptors, Evan Barnes of Newsday reports.

    Simmons skipped Brooklyn's final game heading into the break to rest his left knee, but he'll be back in a starting role Thursday, replacing Dennis Schroder in the first unit. Head coach Kevin Ollie said he would be "mindful" of the players who were on a minutes restriction before the break, so it's unlikely Simmons will exceed minutes outside the mid-20s.

  • Nets' Dennis Schroder: Returns to bench

  • Nets' Ben Simmons: Not on injury report

    Simmons (knee) isn't on the injury report for Thursday's game against Toronto, Brian Lewis of the New York Post reports.

    Simmons missed the Nets' final game before the All-Star break due to left knee injury management, but he'll be back in action as the team returns from its layoff. Over his last four appearances, he's averaged 8.3 points, 5.5 assists, 4.8 rebounds and 1.3 steals in 21.5 minutes per game.

  • Nets' Jaylen Martin: Inks two-way deal with Nets

    Martin agreed to a two-way contract with the Nets on Tuesday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    After going undrafted in June, the 20-year-old Martin had opened the season as one of the Knicks' three two-way players, but he never got the chance to make his NBA debut before being waived in December. He had continued to stick around in the New York organization as a member of the G League's Westchester Knicks, averaging 12.3 points (on 48.7 percent shooting from the field), 3.8 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 1.2 three-pointers in 24.8 minutes per game over 31 appearances. The 6-foot-6 wing is projected to see most of his playing time in the G League with the Long Island Nets for the rest of the season, though he'll be eligible to appear in contests for Brooklyn at the NBA level.

  • Nets' Trendon Watford: Leading scorer off bench Wednesday

    Watford closed Wednesday's 136-86 loss to the Celtics with 15 points (5-7 FG, 2-2 3Pt, 3-3 FT), two rebounds and one assist over 26 minutes.

    Watford saw extended playing for the second time in three games as the Nets saw themselves down by as many as 56 points in Wednesday's loss. He and Mikal Bridges were the only two Brooklyn players to score in double digits. Watford is averaging 6.0 points across 12.1 minutes per game this season and doesn't figure to get more playing time following the All-Star break.
