Jeremy Lin Out 3-5 More Weeks due to Reinjured Hamstring during Rehab

Jeremy Lin Out 3-5 More Weeks due to Reinjured Hamstring during Rehab

The disappointing early season for Jeremy Lin and his fans will be extended 3-5 more weeks because he was reported to reinjure his hamstring during basketball drills on Jan 21, two days before it was announced on Jan 23. The 3rd injury was a recurrence of the second injury but not as severe. The earliest Lin might return is Feb. 15 in the Nets’ final game before the All-Star break, and his absence... »

G38 Brooklyn Nets (8-29) Hopes for New Orleans Pelicans (15-24) Minus ADavis

G38 Brooklyn Nets (8-29) Hopes for New Orleans Pelicans (15-24) Minus ADavis

COUNTDOWN CLOCK The Nets looked listless in the 20pt-loss vs the Hawks. Perhaps they are demoralized playing a team with similar motion offense system but much better execution that Kenny Atkinson helped to coach last season. Rebounding is certainly the #1 issue in Nets losses; they are 3-22 when getting outrebounded. The loss of Trevor Booker in the Hawks game contributed to the rebounding disadv... »

G37 Brooklyn Nets (8-28) Hosts the Formidable Atlanta Hawks (21-16)

G37 Brooklyn Nets (8-28) Hosts the Formidable Atlanta Hawks (21-16)

COUNTDOWN CLOCK   The struggle continues for the Brooklyn Nets as they failed to beat the 76ers. The Nets waived Anthony Bennet to end their experiment to develop the former #1 pick of 2013 class in order to sign Quincy Acy to 10-day contract who showed improved 3pt-shooting in the D-League to complement his rebounding and shot-blocking skills. The Nets clearly want to shore up their weakness... »

G36 Brooklyn Nets (8-27) Need A Win vs Philadelphia 76ers (9-25)

G36 Brooklyn Nets (8-27) Need A Win vs Philadelphia 76ers (9-25)

COUNTDOWN CLOCK The Nets desperately need a win to get closer to the 76ers record if they want to shed the label as the owner of the worst record in the NBA but it will not be easy to face Joel Embiid, Nerlens Noel and the 76ers. Embiid had his career-high 33 pts against the Nets at home on Dec 18 so the Nets would need a solid game-plan to slow down Embiid. The Nets would also need a huge game fr... »

FoxSports.com Game Preview article: The Brooklyn Nets will look to snap a four-game losing streak when they host the banged-up Cleveland Cavaliers.

G34 Brooklyn Nets Tough Road Challenge vs Indiana Pacers

G34 Brooklyn Nets Tough Road Challenge vs Indiana Pacers

COUNTDOWN CLOCK In what became a familiar pattern, the Nets played well for most game against the Jazz only to lose another close game. The encouraging improvement was the collective effort on defense following the players-only meeting. The Nets will also not have Rondae-Hollis Jefferson (hip) and Jeremy Lin (hamstring) for this game so it will be tougher to pull a win on the road against the Pace... »

G33 Brooklyn Nets (8-24) Opens 2017 vs Utah Jazz (21-13)

COUNTDOWN CLOCK   After a blowout loss against the Wizards on the road, the Nets held a player-only meeting to rehash their disagreement on-court about the lack of defensive assignments.
