Sergey Karasev to make second career start


Little-used backup swingman Sergey Karasev will start over Bojan Bogdanovic in the team’s 8:00 P.M. Wednesday start against the Chicago Bulls, the Nets announced before the game.

Karasev will make his second career start, and first with the Nets. In his lone other start as a member of the Cleveland Cavaliers, Karasev played 15 minutes and scored one point.

Karasev has played in just 35 minutes over seven games this season, one minute fewer than Andrei Kirilenko, who hasn’t played since November 13th, hitting four of his eight shots.
