Brooklyn Nets forward Mirza Teletovic’s status has upgraded above OUT for the first time since January 22nd, Lionel Hollins announced following Nets practice Tuesday afternoon.

Hollins was reticent about Teletovic’s chances at playing.  “Probable means that he’s getting further along to playing in a game, because he’s been practicing, it doesn’t mean he’s going to get in a game,” Hollins said.

“It doesn’t matter what I need to see, it matters what I feel like- that I feel confident he can play.”

Teletovic was diagnosed with bilateral pulmonary embolus (blood clots in his lungs) after leaving a game against the Los Angeles Clippers with shortness of breath. He was expected to be out three to six months. If he plays Wednesday, it will be exactly three months since the initial diagnosis.
