Nets full injury report for Friday matchup against Bulls

The Brooklyn Nets have won back-to-back games for the first time since the beginning of March when they beat the Atlanta Hawks on Mar. 2 for their second consecutive win over the Hawks in as many games. As they look to extend their winning streak in the hopes of passing 10th-seeded Atlanta, Brooklyn will be doing so while getting healthier.

In the Nets’ injury report for Friday’s matchup against the Chicago Bulls, Noah Clowney and Dennis Smith Jr. were listed as probable. After taking a hard fall on his backside in Wednesday’s 122-119 overtime win at the Washington Wizards, Clowney is dealing with a back contusion, but is more likely to play than not.

Smith is dealing with right hip synovitis and has missed the past two games as a result. Smith’s role this season has been as the backup point guard so in his absence, the Nets have been giving more minutes to starting point guard Dennis Schroder while slotting in some minutes for guard Cam Thomas to run the point as well.

Forward Cam Johnson remains out with his left big toe sprain that has caused him to miss the past two games. For now, Brooklyn will look to give the vacated minutes to players like Jalen Wilson, Trendon Watford and Noah Clowney.
