One word to describe his season: Electrifying

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson was the bright spot. He has been electrifying, with a killer game on the court and a similar personality off of it. On a team that severely lacks talented youth — and any sort of hope for that matter — Rondae provided that. On a team that lacks good defense, Rondae provided that. The season had been rough, but there was hope, and it was almost entirely because of Rondae.

And then he got hurt.

On Saturday December 6th, Hollis-Jefferson suffered a broken ankle in practice, and is expected to be out 8-10 weeks following surgery.

It’s a very tough blow for the 20-year-old and for the Nets. Hollis-Jefferson had cemented himself in the starting lineup, and guarding the opposing team’s best player nightly. He leaves a big void to fill in the Nets’ lineup. Bojan Bogdanovic and Markel Brown will be called upon to fill his spot, and the Nets hope they can fill in admirably. Hopefully, Rondae can fully recover and return to the lineup this season.
