Jahlil Okafor is out with the flu and Nets’ coach Kenny Atkinson expects him to rejoin the team Sunday.
Brooklyn has still not tried out Okafor in heavy minutes to see if his potential is there at all. There’s no doubt Okafor has good offensive skills, but with his lack of shooting, defense and play-making it has been hard for him to carve out a role so far in his career. Okafor can be left on the waiver wire unless the Nets decide they want to start giving him extended looks.
