Nets list Mirza Teletovic as ‘probable’ for Game 2 vs. Hawks

The Nets ruled Mirza Teletovic out for the season back on Jan. 23, after he was diagnosed with bilateral pulmonary embolus (multiple blood clots in the lungs).

Perhaps they meant the regular season.

Teletovic was back on the court and went through a full practice with his team in advance of the Game 1 loss to the Hawks, but the Nets said at the time that he would continue to be listed as “out” for games, and that his status would be updated as appropriate.

The Nets announced that Teletovic is listed as “probable” now for Wednesday’s Game 2.

From Rod Boone of Newsday:

Hollins adds that doesn’t mean Mirza will get into the game. Just that he’s probable to be on the roster. Whatever that means.

Teletovic has proven to be a capable outside shooter at times, and against a Hawks team that toyed with them for the bulk of Game 1, the Nets will obviously take all the help they can get.

Teletovic appeared in 44 games for Brooklyn this season, and averaged 8.5 points and 4.9 rebounds in 22.3 minutes per contest.
