Brooklyn Nets youngster Sergey Karasev was forced to leave Tuesday's game against the Miami Heat in the third quarter, and he didn't return.
Newsday's Rod Boone had the news:
Boone had more detail on Karasev's availability for Wednesday's game as well:
The second-year Russian entered the day averaging just 3.3 points in 11.7 minutes per contest, but he recently surpassed Bojan Bogdanovic on the depth chart, earning the starting job next to Joe Johnson on the wing.
His role has been growing significantly, and he had 11 points, three rebounds, three assists and a block in 22 minutes before leaving Tuesday's contest.
Should this injury keep him sidelined for any amount of time, Bogdanovic would likely re-enter the starting lineup, while Alan Anderson will see more minutes off the bench.
