Billy Donovan confirmed Javonte Green tested positive for COVID-19 and returned home to Chicago late last night. He’ll remain in isolation until he can clear protocol.
Coby White is also still in isolation. – 6:42 PM
Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed
James Johnson is questionable tonight against the Bulls with left shoulder soreness. Johnson has emerged as a key role player in Brooklyn and his versatility off the bench has earned him a steady role in the front court. #Nets

Javonte Green tested positive for Covid -19 and has returned to Chicago according to Head Coach Billy Donovan. – 6:32 PM
Tim Bontemps @TimBontemps
Billy Donovan says Javonte Green tested positive for COVID-19, and is back in Chicago now. Says that the Bulls aren’t the only one dealing with this, but his team has handled it well. Bulls have had three players enter protocols recently, including Coby White earlier this week. – 6:31 PM

“He finds the most happiness on the basketball court — It’s a long season, we don’t want to overburden him.”
⁃Steve Nash on Kevin Durant possibly playing more minutes tonight. – 6:26 PM
Ohm Youngmisuk @NotoriousOHM
James Johnson (left shoulder soreness) is questionable tonight. If he can’t go, Steve Nash wasn’t sure if this would be a potential spot for Blake Griffin to fill in given how the Bulls can go small. Cam Thomas (quad) is available to play. – 6:24 PM
Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer
Steve Nash asked why the Nets haven’t swept a back-to-back this season. Said he’s something he’s thought about and doesn’t have one answer for. Could throw out a few options, but doesn’t feel strongly about one over the others. – 6:24 PM
Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer
Steve Nash doesn’t seem to expect Blake Griffin to take James Johnson’s minutes if he can’t go tonight. Johnson is questionable with left shoulder soreness. Nash pointed out that the Bulls don’t play a lot of bigs, which doesn’t make for a natural place for Griffin. – 6:20 PM
Ajayi Browne @ajayibrowne
Steve Nash confirms Blake Griffin may get minutes tonight amidst James Johnson being questionable. – 6:19 PM
KC Johnson @KCJHoop
Nets coach Steve Nash on Bulls: “They have a great spirit. Like the top teams in our league, they all seem to play for each other.” – 6:18 PM
Ajayi Browne @ajayibrowne
“We didn’t play great. I don’t think they played great for three quarters — No excuses though, they beat us.”
⁃Steve Nash on losing to the Chicago Bulls in the first meeting. – 6:17 PM
Micah Adams @MicahAdams13
DeMar DeRozan and Zach LaVine rank 1st and 3rd in 4th quarter scoring.
No teammates have ranked inside the top 5 since KG (4th) and Cassell (5th) in 2003-04.
That’s the only other time since 1996-97 that two teammates ranked inside the top 5 in 4th quarter scoring. – 5:55 PM
Brian Lewis @NYPost_Lewis
Can Thomas (left thigh contusion) will be available tonight vs the #Bulls. James Johnson (left shoulder soreness) is questionable for the #Nets. – 5:48 PM
Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer
Net say Cam Thomas is available tonight. He’s working out as I type this and looks fine. – 5:44 PM
Ajayi Browne @ajayibrowne
Cam Thomas has been upgraded to AVAILABLE, the team says. – 5:43 PM

RJ Barrett said during the Brooklyn game, he kept running back to the locker room throw up. “I was messed up,” he said. That’s why he had to come out at halftime. Says he feels better now. “I was good enough to play.” – 4:01 PM
Stefan Bondy @SBondyNYDN
RJ Barrett said he was running back to throw up during the Brooklyn game. Feels better now. Doesn’t know the illness. – 4:00 PM

Thaddeus Young joined me on my podcast and talked about being blindsided when the Bulls traded him, his limited playing time in San Antonio, his name surfacing in trade rumors again, the key to longevity in the NBA, the Spurs’ young core and more. LISTEN: podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/the…3:26 PM

And with 2 wins in the first 3 games of the road trip, the #Nuggets now have just 1 game left in this batch of games against a team with a winning record — Monday at Chicago. The trip finishes w/a game at New Orleans and 2 at San Antonio. – 3:17 PM

Fred Katz @FredKatz
Knicks defense looking all too much like the first half of the defense from the first half of the Bulls game. Breakdowns. Open 3s aplenty. A rough performance so far, and they’re down 44-28 to the shorthanded Nuggets. – 1:50 PM
Tim Bontemps @TimBontemps
Boos raining down on the Knicks here at Madison Square Garden as Denver jumps out to a 44-28 lead and forces Tom Thibodeau to call a timeout midway through the second. This game is looking reminiscent to what happened Thursday night vs. Chicago so far. – 1:48 PM
Adam Zagoria @AdamZagoria
The Nets are listing former @LSUBasketball star Cam Thomas (left thigh contusion) as probable tonight vs. the Bulls – 1:39 PM
