Brooklyn Nets MarShon Brooks was expected to be out for seven-to-ten days but it is reported that he will play in tonight's game against the Boston Celtics. That means he cam back a couple of days earlier than predicted. He had been sidelined for tendinitis in his right foot. Earlier today, Tim Bontemps of the NY Post said that it is likely that MarShon Brooks plays today.
The second-year shooting guard, who has been out of action for a week with right foot tendinitis, will play in Thursday night’s nationally televised preseason game if he makes it through shootaround without any complications, Nets coach Avery Johnson said.It seems as if Brooks did not have any problems, as Nets beat writer Stefan Bondy tweeted that Brooks will play today.
MarShon Brooks will play his first game tonight, had been suffering from foot tendinitis.Brooks had a tremendous rookie season compared to where he was selected and will likely be the sixth man off the bench to start the season provided he is fully healthy. In his rookie season, Brooks averaged 12.6 points, 3.6 rebounds and 2.3 assists to go with 42.8% shooting from the field. He had a tendency to call isos, even as a rookie, which could be seen as a positive in terms of confidence. But with a real team around him, it will be interesting to see how he matures and adapts coming off the bench again after starting 47 out of the 56 games he played.
