Nets’ LeVert, Harris, Allen Won’t Play On Tuesday

The Nets will be without three of their key players on Tuesday, with head coach Jacque Vaughn announcing today that Caris LeVert (thigh contusion), Joe Harris (back tightness), and Jarrett Allen (rest) won’t play against Milwaukee (Twitter links via Alex Schiffer of The Athletic).

Tuesday’s game against the Bucks will be the first half of a back-to-back set for the Nets, which Vaughn noted today when announcing his inactives. Allen, at least, should be good to go on Wednesday vs. the Celtics after playing 38 minutes on Sunday vs. Washington — we’ll have to wait to find out if LeVert and/or Harris will be back for Wednesday’s game as well.

The Nets’ active roster on Tuesday will look almost nothing like the group that the team relied on for much of the season. Even with LeVert, Harris, and Allen in the lineup, Brooklyn entered the restart shorthanded, missing injured players like Kyrie Irving, Kevin Durant, and Nicolas Claxton, as well as Spencer Dinwiddie, Taurean Prince, DeAndre Jordan, and Wilson Chandler, all of whom either opted out of the restart or were ruled out following positive coronavirus tests.

On Tuesday, the Nets will be led by the likes of Tyler Johnson, Garrett Temple, Chris Chiozza, Rodions Kurucs, Lance Thomas, and Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot as they go up against the NBA’s best team.

    This could get ugly. I gather Jamal Crawford will be available for the game.

        As a wolves fan I’ve seen most of their moves towards to that end. They still need other bad teams to win games tho I think.

          Nets have beautiful chance to win first overall pick if miss playoffs
          Suns win more games than Nets?
          It’s known that Warriors or Nets win first overall pick
          Warriors have trade fake draft pick to Nets

            And if the Warriors or Nets don’t get the first overall pick, then what does that prove? Perhaps that a certain someone doesn’t know nearly as much as he thinks……

    The NBA’s “best team” lost on Sunday for just the 3rd time in the last 7 years when they had an 8-point lead (or better) in the last 3 minutes of a game. The best record doesn’t always equate to the best team.

    Might as well preserve your best players for the more winnable game. It’s not as though they had a shot against Milwaukee regardless…
