Nets sitting Durant, Irving, pretty much everyone you can name vs. Pacers
Friday night at home against Atlanta, Brooklyn played its regular rotation picking up the 120-116 win behind a combined 77 points from Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant.
Most of those players are taking Saturday night off in Indiana. The list of Nets players out against the Pacers:
• Kevin Durant (injury management)
• Kyrie Irving (left adductor tightness)
• Ben Simmons (injury management)
• Seth Curry (injury management)
• Joe Harris (injury management)
• T.J. Warren (injury management)
• Royce O’Neale (personal reasons)
• Nic Claxton (right hamstring tightness)
“Injury management” is another way of saying load management or rest.
That means Jacque Vaughn has to construct lineups out of a combination of Cam Thomas, Patty Mills, Markieff Morris, Kessler Edwards, David Duke Jr., Day’Ron Sharpe, Edmond Sumner and Yuta Watanabe.
The Pacers also are on a back-to-back, having beaten the Wizards Friday night. Indiana will be without Chris Duarte (left ankle sprain), while Tyrese Haliburton is questionable with left groin soreness.
