Brooklyn Nets forward Rondae Hollis–Jefferson, who suffered an injury while playing in a charity event sponsored by Atlanta Hawks guard Jeremy Lin Saturday night in Shenzhen, China, has been diagnosed with a left adductor strain — the team announced.
Hollis-Jefferson went up for a dunk and landed awkwardly. He spoke to Lin, then headed directly to the locker room. The 23-year-old did not return to the game and didn’t appear for the postgame team photo.
Hollis-Jefferson will begin rehabilitation immediately. Nets training camp begins the third week of September.
In 68 games this past season, Hollis-Jefferson averaged 13.9 points, 6.8 rebounds and 2.5 assists, shooting 47.2 percent from the field and 24.1 percent from three.
