Rondae Hollis-Jefferson ACTIVE, will play vs. Hornets


Rondae Hollis-Jefferson is available and will play against the Charlotte Hornets Tuesday night, Nets coach Tony Brown said prior to the game.

Hollis-Jefferson has not played in an NBA game since December 4th, missing 50 games with a broken bone and subsequent surgery in his left ankle. In 19 games (14 starts) prior to the injury, Hollis-Jefferson averaged 5.2 points and 6.1 rebounds per game.

Brown, who confirmed the decision was made by the medical staff and organization, said that Hollis-Jefferson would have a minutes limit and would not start the game. His minutes limit was yet to be determined at the time Brown spoke with the media.

As of Monday afternoon, Hollis-Jefferson wasn’t sure if he’d be shut down for the year, and said he had to go through “back to playing” tests — tests that even he didn’t know if he’d done already. But shortly after Monday’s practice, the team listed him as probable.

Sergey Karasev will be moved to the inactive list.
