Nets’ F Mirza Teletovic has been pronounced out for the duration of the season with blood clots in his lungs.
With Teletovic out, the Nets’ lose an offensive force off of the bench. On the season Teletovic has been averaging 8.5 points per game and 4.9 rebounds per game while shooting 32% from behind the three point line.
Rookie Cory Jefferson will likely be called upon to play bigger minutes to replace Teletovic’s minutes at the four. Bojan Bogdanovic and Sergey Karasev’s offensive production also needs to improve to cope with the loss of Teletovic.
The Nets cannot apply for a Disable Players Exception as the deadline for applying was January 15. The Bosnian is a restricted free agent at the season’s end.
Everyone at NY Sports Hub wishes Mirza Teletovic a speedy and safe recovery
