“We just gotta do the best we can and manage his health the rest of the way and hopefully he can maintain a level of comfort playing through some discomfort…. it’s not where it’s debilitating.”

Steve Nash says the team doesn’t have the luxury to rest Seth Curry when it might be ideal to. They’ll need to manage his health moving forwards given the ongoing ankle issue. – 5:50 PM

Daniel Gafford just threw down a huge dunk before Wizards-Warriors and I almost got Deni Avdija’s windmill which has become a white whale for me.

Wayne Cole @waynec0le
Pregame I asked Coach Wes Unseld Jr what he likes when Rui Hachimura and Kristaps Porzingis are on the floor together.
“Balance” Rui is able to be aggressive on defense because he knows KP is behind him he also wants to see that emotion from Rui which he displayed v #Pistons4:43 PM

📅 On this day in 1962, the @Golden State Warriors Wilt Chamberlain had 42 points and 37 rebounds in a 113-106 win over the Celtics in Game 2 of the Eastern Division Finals.
Chamberlain is the only player in NBA postseason history to record at least 40p/30r in a game. He did so six times. pic.twitter.com/fFAdXqlRlR3:01 PM

Nets status report for tonight’s game. LaMarcus Aldridge isn’t on it and appears available to play: Dragic (left knee soreness) – PROBABLE
Curry (left ankle sprain) – QUESTIONABLE
Harris (left ankle surgery) – OUT
Simmons (return to competition reconditioning/back soreness) – OUT – 1:38 PM

Justin Kubatko @jkubatko
📅 On this day in 2019, the @Phoenix Suns Devin Booker had 50 points and 10 rebounds in a loss to the Wizards.
Booker became the youngest player in NBA history to record consecutive 50-point games.
He and Amar’e Stoudemire are the only players in team history to record a 50p/10r game. pic.twitter.com/3PHwYtoYSo1:01 PM

Warriors center James Wiseman will miss the remainder of the regular season and playoffs to continue rehabbing his right knee injury. warriorswire.usatoday.com/2022/03/26/inj…1:00 PM

Chuck Swirsky @ctsbulls
Growing up in Bellevue, Washington there was a cul- de-sac where we would play street hockey with frozen tennis balls and had a blast. I idolized Bobby Orr …I later met him in Toronto and a picture of the two of us is displayed in the office. Orr revolutionized the game . pic.twitter.com/S56Zm9LKNs12:49 PM

Kendra Andrews @kendra__andrews
Andre Iguodala will not play tonight against the Wizards. Yesterday he was considered questionable. – 12:47 PM

Brian Mahoney @briancmahoney
First time this season, the Nets’ notes for a home game don’t have Kyrie Irving listed here.
STATUS UPDATES: Goran Dragić (left knee soreness) is PROBABLE. Seth Curry (left ankle sprain) is QUESTIONABLE. Joe Harris (left ankle surgery) and Ben Simmons (back soreness) are OUT. – 12:44 PM

Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed
Goran Dragic is probable and Seth Curry is questionable for tonight’s game against the Hornets. This is particularly encouraging for Dragic* because it’s the second game of a back to back. Curry said his ankle situation will linger for the rest of the season. – 12:40 PM
