The already short-handed Nets will have an even tougher time trying to get back into their series with the Raptors. Joe Harris has left the Disney World campus to deal with a non-medical personal matter, tweets Shams Charania of The Athletic.
Harris played 39 minutes in today’s Game 2 loss, scoring 14 points and pulling down 15 rebounds. The status of his return will be updated later, according to Brian Lewis of The New York Post (Twitter link). However, because Harris would have to quarantine for at least four days upon returning, it won’t matter unless Brooklyn can significantly extend the series.
ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski suggests that Harris’ quarantine period might be even longer than four days, tweeting that the Nets will have to extend the series to six or seven games for the 28-year-old to play again, based on “the circumstances of his departure.”
