Brooklyn Nets guard Cam Thomas will be out for the next two weeks due to a left ankle sprain. The injury occurred during the third quarter of the Nets’ recent win over the Los Angeles Clippers. Thomas ended his outing with 14 points before exiting the game. Lonnie Walker IV will replace him in the lineup during his absence.
While it’s disappointing to lose Thomas for a couple of weeks, Walker has shown his capabilities as a replacement. In the game against the Clippers, Walker led the team in scoring with 21 points. He spoke about his improved performance, citing self-confidence and the effort he puts into the game.
However, the Brooklyn Nets will undoubtedly miss Thomas during his absence. The young guard has been a standout player for the team so far this season, averaging a team-high 26.9 points. His impressive performance was highlighted by a season-high 45 points in a recent game against the Milwaukee Bucks. Despite this setback, the Nets will need to bring their best performance as they face the Boston Celtics in their upcoming matchup. Both teams are 1-0 so far in the In-Season Tournament, and the Celtics are currently considered a 9-point favorite according to NBA sportsbooks.
