Reporters rushed him as he went into the Nets locker room. He cheered and rapped, “Look out Brooklyn, here I come… You can’t hide, you can’t run. I’m coming, baby!” He was great to the media and people around him. Personally, that same Arizona sophomore came into the locker room before a game in 2015. Noticing something off, Rondae asked if I was alright. He insisted to pull up a chair and talk about life – from his end to my end. He turned out to be the first real feature story I ever wrote, murmuring words that ring true for so many people facing adversity: There’s beauty in the struggle.
Though Atkinson would not put any expectations on when Hollis-Jefferson might be able to return, he was optimistic. “It’s not a pull, it’s not a tear, [it’s] a strain. So that’s good news,” Atkinson said. “I can’t give you a timetable, but it’s not a huge, long process like he went through in the offseason. So I’d say the news is positive in that sense.”

What are the chances we get to see you play 3×3 again? Rondae Hollis-Jefferson: I don’t know when it would happen but I would love to play 3×3 again. I really enjoyed playing in that kind of basketball and I learned a lot during my time playing 3×3. The Olympics are a great window of opportunity, but as I play in the NBA, I don’t know about it. Only the future will tell, but winning a gold medal with Team USA at the Olympics would be an amazing experience!
After spending more than two months recovering from a groin strain during an exhibition in China with former Net Jeremy Lin, forward Rondae Hollis-Jefferson finally is on the verge of returning just in time for the regular-season opener Wednesday night in Detroit. He missed all the preseason games but has been practicing fully and you can tell he’s back to his old self by the way he hit the floor hard twice in post-practice drills on Sunday and bounced right back up. “Whenever they give a green light, we’re good,” Hollis-Jefferson said. “Because I play so energetic and all over the place, it’s definitely good to be in control, understand how you play and get that natural feel back.”

Rondae Hollis-Jefferson has not only been ruled out of Monday’s preseason tilt at Detroit, but his status is up in the air for the regular-season opener Oct. 17 against those same Pistons. Keep an eye on Brooklyn’s power forward position this preseason — rest assured the Nets will be.

Word circulated around the NBA over the weekend that Brooklyn could get Butler in exchange for D’Angelo Russell (a close friend of Karl Anthony-Towns), Rondae Hollis-Jefferson and another player or two whose salaries would make the deal work under NBA rules. But there was conflicting information coming in to GetMoreSports about the accuracy of that chatter. Butler rumors have been whirling since Friday when he told management he wanted to be dealt, and teams outside of New York, Los Angeles and Miami were being cautious, knowing that Butler could end up being a one-season rental since he becomes an unrestricted free agent next summer.
The Nets didn’t have the results of Dzanan Musa’s MRI exam, but they were confident the first-round pick had avoided any catastrophic injury and will be ready for training camp. Considering earlier reports, it’s beyond best-case scenario. … The Musa scare came after forward Rondae Hollis-Jefferson suffered a left adductor strain playing in Jeremy Lin’s charity game in Shenzhen, China, last month — but both are expected to be ready for training camp, which opens next Tuesday. “Dzanan is currently getting an MRI. It’s to be determined. It’s not as serious as was posted out there, thankfully. All is well there,” Nets general manager Sean Marks said. “Both will be cleared and integrated into training camp.”

The Nets are aware of the injury but details so far are scarce, a situation hampered by a 12-hour time gap between Shenzhen and New York. According to an eyewitness at the “Hoop for Hope” event, Hollis-Jefferson went up for a dunk and on landing felt pain. He spoke to Lin, then headed directly to the locker room. He did not return and wasn’t in a post-game team photo either.
Bobby Marks: With the Dwight Howard trade, only Allen Crabbe will have a guaranteed contract for the Nets in 2019-20. The Nets could potentially have up to $60M+ in room next summer but will be contingent on the restricted free agency of D’Angelo Russell and Rondae Hollis-Jefferson.
Nets point guard Jeremy Lin responded quickly on social media, tweeting that he had all of his teammates over to his home last week for a barbecue. “Hmm Jalen much respect to you but no idea where this came from lol. I just had the whole team over for a fat bbq last week. These are my homies…even @IAmCHAP24 lol,” Lin tweeted, calling on teammate Rondae Hollis-Jefferson.
Question: What’s the biggest thing you’ve been proud of this season? Kenny Atkinson: Seeing guys improve…individually. Joe Harris, Spencer Dinwiddie…everybody. Caris LeVert is getting better, Rondae Hollis-Jefferson has made a huge jump. That’s when you get the trust is when those guys feel like [they are improving] when they come into work – that they are going to get better. I always joke with the guys if you didn’t get better today [in practice], I’ll give you a refund. Even DeMarre Carroll. He had some injuries in Toronto and it wasn’t perfect for him. He comes here [and gets better] – everyone always talks about development for the young guys – I want this to be a program where a guy comes here at 28 or 32 and is going to improve his game.
