Rondae Hollis-Jefferson returned to the Brooklyn Nets Wednesday after missing seven straight games with a hip injury and didn’t get a lot of burn.
Coach Kenny Atkinson had said before the game that RHJ would be on a minutes limit (h/t Brian Lewis, New York Post), but did not specify what it was.
Hollis-Jefferson was active on the glass during his brief stints in the first and third quarters, but was still a bit out of sorts trying to get to the rim, with a pair of very awkward attempts that were well off-target.
Defensively, he also seemed a bit stiff — not unexpected for a guy who hadn’t played in more than two weeks.
Ed Davis, human after all. It’s a bit of a shocker, but Davis put up a bit of a clunker on Wednesday, picking up three quick fouls and spending most of his time on the sidelines.
It worked out for the Nets, as Jarrett Allen had a career night, and Davis has been too reliable for too long in his career to be too concerned about one poor game.
