Lionel Hollins says Mirza Teletovic is 'probable' for Game 2 vs. Hawks

Tuesday April 21st, 2015

Brooklyn Nets coach Lionel Hollins said forward Mirza Teletovic is "probable" for Game 2 of the team's first round playoff series against the Atlanta Hawks, according to Rod Boone of Newsday.

The Nets announced last Friday that Teletovic was cleared to resume basketball-related activities. In January, Brooklyn said Teletovic would miss the remainder of the season after being diagnosed with bilateral pulmonary embolus, or multiple blood clots in the lungs.

Hollins added that Teletovic being probable does not mean he will enter the game, but that he's probable to be on the roster, according to Boone

Nets general manager Billy King said last week that Teletovic would be listed as out for games unless his status changed. 

Over 40 games this season, Teletovic averaged 8.5 points, 4.9 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 22.3 minutes.

The Hawks took Game 1 of the series 99-92. Game 2 will be in Atlanta on Wednesday.
