Greetings. I did not make the trip to Toronto. Travel too much to get there. Anyway, Nets-Raptors round two tips shortly. No Drummond, but Cam Thomas is playing. Let’s see how this goes. – 7:37 PM

Standing O for Fred VanVleet, who’s introduced as an all-star for the first time in front of a full(ish) home crowd. He’s inactive tonight but his kids just presented him with an all-star jersey at halfcourt. – 7:36 PM

Slow arriving crowd but I’m told the Raptors are expecting something close to a sellout tonight. First game with more than a few hundred people at Scotiabank Arena since Dec. 28 and first game at more than half capacity since Dec. 13 pic.twitter.com/zFARHLnm4B7:30 PM

Aaron Rose @AaronBenRose
I did a lap of the arena looking for any Goran Dragic Raptors jerseys and unfortunately came up empty. Wonder how many they sold. – 7:24 PM

“Nothing serious, just precautionary on our part, especially with the back-to-back. Just being safe, precautionary for the long haul.”
-Jacque Vaughn on Andre Drummond’s knee soreness and why he’s OUT vs. Raps. – 7:20 PM

still pretty empty here at sba as the raptors players make their way to the court – 7:18 PM

Brian Lewis @NYPost_Lewis
Steve Nash could clear health & safety protocols after two negative tests 24 hours apart. The #Nets host the #Heat Thursday and then start a three-game trip Sunday at the #Celtics. – 7:09 PM

Brian Lewis @NYPost_Lewis
The #Nets will start Mills, Curry, Brown, Johnson and Aldridge tonight at the #Raptors. This is Brooklyn’s 35th different starting lineup of the season. #NBA7:07 PM

Nurse as clear as he has been on L’Affaire Dragic: “I think the biggest characterization of it all is we probably wanted to focus on our younger guys.” With that in mind, obviously there was less incentive to keep him around. – 6:25 PM

Jacque Vaughn says Steve Nash – who is in health and safety protocols – feels good, and he wasn’t aware of Nash feeling any symptoms. #Nets6:10 PM

Brian Lewis @NYPost_Lewis
Jacque Vaughn reiterates Kevin Durant is still on track to come back either Thursday vs. the #Heat or Sunday at the #Celtics. #Nets6:09 PM

Doug Smith @SmithRaps
Raptors sticking with what they know — Flynn, Trent, Barnes, Siakam, Birch
And no Andre Drummond for Nets – 6:08 PM

Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed
Jacque Vaughn says Kevin Durant is still on track to return either Thursday against the Heat or Sunday against the Boston Celtics. Says nothing has changed with KD since Steve Nash’s last update. – 6:07 PM

Dave Early @DavidEarly
Jacque Vaughn (with a huge grin) defers all talk of how Ben Simmons will be deployed to Steve Nash, reminding us he should be be back soon. – 6:06 PM

Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed
Jacque Vaughn told me to save my questions about Ben Simmons fitting in offensively for when Steve Nash clears the health and safety protocols. 💀 – 6:06 PM

Dave Early @DavidEarly
Jacque Vaughn says they’re holding out Andre Drummond for precautionary reasons (left knee soreness) with the back to back. – 6:05 PM

Brian Lewis @NYPost_Lewis
Jacque Vaughn said #Nets are being precautionary with Andre Drummond and that the knee injury isn’t serious. – 6:03 PM

Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer

Jacque Vaughn says the Nets are holding Andre Drummond (left knee soreness) out as a precautionary measure with the back-to-back tonight. – 6:03 PM

Doug Smith @SmithRaps
No Anunoby, no VanVleet, no Wilson for the Raptors tonight. OG is coming along, could have been playing with the finger issue for weeks, no one is sure. Specialist said it’s close to fully healed – 6:01 PM

Aaron Rose @AaronBenRose
Andre Dummond is out tonight for the Nets – 6:00 PM

Josh Lewenberg @JLew1050
Nick Nurse, asked what kind of reception he expects Goran Dragic will get from a packed house at Scotiabank Arena tonight: “I don’t know. I don’t know if there will be much of one. I would say if there is one it probably won’t be great.” – 5:59 PM

Andre Drummond leads the #Nets in plus-minus (+22), Net Rating (7.8) offensive, defensive and total rebounds since debuting Feb. 14. He’s second in blocks and steals. – 5:55 PM

Josh Lewenberg @JLew1050
The hand specialist Anunoby saw in LA yesterday said his fractured finger is healing and should be fully healed within the next 2 weeks. He could be back sooner though. The team is trying to determine whether he’s able to play through the injury. He’s still experiencing pain. – 5:55 PM

Michael Grange @michaelgrange
VanVleet and DJ Wilson are both out vs. Nets (knee in each case). – 5:52 PM

Eric Koreen @ekoreen
No news from specialist for Anunoby. Specialist thinks it is nearly healed. Within two weeks it will be fully healed if he does not play in that time, Nurse thinks. He is not playing tonight. VanVleet is out, as is D.J. Wilson. – 5:52 PM

Josh Lewenberg @JLew1050
VanVleet, Anunoby and DJ Wilson are all out tonight. – 5:52 PM

Aaron Rose @AaronBenRose
Fred VanVleet and DJ Wilson are both out tonight as well – 5:52 PM

Michael Grange @michaelgrange
“There’s a slight fracture … he’s been playing with it for quite sometime.” – Nurse on OG. He is out for game vs. Nets. Says he could return to play, but could fully heal in two weeks, so might wait for that. It’s all under discussion. – 5:51 PM

Aaron Rose @AaronBenRose
Update on OG Anunoby is “nothing new. Nothing we didn’t already know.” The specialist thought it was nearly healed. He’s able to play on it and he’ll be fully healthy in 2 weeks. Status is still TBD. He’s out tonight – 5:50 PM

Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer
Nets say Cam Thomas (right hand strain) is available tonight against Toronto while Andre Drummond (left knee soreness) is out. – 5:50 PM

Terrible photo, but nothing but smiles and laughs for Goran with Raptors folks as he comes out to shoot at Scotiabank Arena. Fans might be booing; old teammates will be dapping. There were never hard feelings: pic.twitter.com/BPdxaitefx5:38 PM

One time I said that the Nets being in the play-in would be funny and then a Nets fan DM’d me to ask if I was an idiot. Currently two games ahead of 9th in the East.
I’m such an idiot. – 4:13 PM

Andre Drummond (left knee soreness) and Cam Thomas (left hand sprain) are both questionable for the #Nets tonight. Kevin Durant (left knee – MCL sprain), Joe Harris (left ankle surgery), Ben Simmons (return to competition reconditioning) and Kyrie Irving are out at the #Raptors. – 3:46 PM

Justin Kubatko @jkubatko
📅 On this day in 1978, the @Jaryd Wilson John Drew committed 14 turnovers in a loss to the Nets.
Since the NBA started tracking individual turnovers in 1977-78, Drew’s single-game mark has been matched (Jason Kidd on Nov. 17, 2000) but never surpassed. pic.twitter.com/qbK6qbMjKD3:01 PM

The Nets’ blame game should start and end with Kyrie Irving nydailynews.com/sports/basketb…2:44 PM

Eric Koreen @ekoreen
Along with Fred VanVleet and D.J. Wilson, who both have knee ailments, OG Anunoby is questionable for tonight’s game with his ring finger fracture. Whether he plays or not, that is good news for the long term for Anunoby, who has missed the last three games. – 2:20 PM

Justin Kubatko @jkubatko
📅 On this day in 2009, the @Dallas Mavericks Jason Kidd dished out 15 assists in a win over the Raptors, surpassing 10,000 career assists in the process.
Kidd became just the fourth player in NBA history to reach that mark, joining John Stockton, Mark Jackson, and Magic Johnson. pic.twitter.com/eAphGZ3OAO2:01 PM

Dave Early @DavidEarly
From Nets PR:
No change to Ben Simmons’ status
Drummond (left knee soreness) – QUESTIONABLE
Thomas (left hand sprain) – QUESTIONABLE
Durant (left knee – MCL sprain) – OUT
Harris (left ankle surgery) – OUT
Simmons (return to competition reconditioning) – OUT
Irving – OUT – 1:50 PM
