Rondae Hollis-Jefferson sprains ankle


Nets rookie guard Rondae Hollis-Jefferson sprained his right ankle during the team’s practice Saturday, the team announced, leaving his status for Sunday night’s game against the Golden State Warriors in doubt.

The right ankle is the same ankle Hollis-Jefferson sprained during preseason on October 10th.

Hollis-Jefferson has started the last 14 games for the Nets, averaging 5.2 points, 6.1 rebounds, 1.4 assists, and 1.4 steals in 22.1 minutes per game. Before Friday night’s blowout loss to the Knicks, Brooklyn’s starting lineup had been one of the league’s best in terms of on-off court numbers.

Andrea Bargnani (tight left hamstring) and Sergey Karasev (sprained left ankle) did not practice for the Nets.
