According to various reporters, the Nets will play at full strength with their regular starting lineup tonight, but will only play their starters 18-24 minutes:
“I’m pretty sure everybody’s okay, they all went through shootaround and unless somebody comes up lame, I plan on playing everybody,” Carlesimo said after shootaround at PNY Center. “They’ll definitely get a sweat, they haven’t played since Sunday (at the Toronto Raptors) and we still might not play until Sunday, so they’ll definitely get some good runs. Maybe they’ll start the first and start the third, we’ll see how long they go.”
The Nets rested Deron Williams, Joe Johnson, Reggie Evans, Brook Lopez, Keith Bogans, and Jerry Stackhouse Monday night, but Carlesimo said after that game that they’d “definitely” play today if healthy to shake off rust before the playoffs.
