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 Dave Early @DavidEarly

“Nothing serious, just precautionary on our part, especially with the back-to-back. Just being safe, precautionary for the long haul.”

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 Brooklyn Nets @BrooklynNets

Jacque Vaughn playfully pleads the fifth, deferring questions about how Ben Simmons’ unorthodox game will fit on #Nets to Steve Nash (COVID protocols) who should be back soon. pic.twitter.com/KLqzEeVmRY – 6:12 PM

Brian Lewis @NYPost_Lewis

Jacque Vaughn says Steve Nash – who is in health and safety protocols – feels good, and he wasn’t aware of Nash feeling any symptoms. #Nets – 6:10 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. #Nets – 6:09 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

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 Toronto Raptors @Raptors

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 Dave Early @DavidEarly

Nets say Andre Drummond (left knee soreness) is out tonight vs. Raptors. – 5:47 PM Michael Grange @michaelgrange

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/BPdxaitefx – 5:38 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/qbK6qbMjKD – 3:01 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/eAphGZ3OAO – 2:01 PM
