The Nets are looking to rebound after a disappointing loss in game three against the Bucks on Thursday night, but they will once again be without one of their stars in game four.
Head coach Steve Nash told reporters on Saturday that James Harden has been ruled out for Sunday’s game in Milwaukee, though he is “progressing well” as he looks to work his way back from a hamstring injury.
Harden missed roughly a month down the stretch of the regular season with a hamstring strain, and left the opening game of Brooklyn’s second-round series in the first minute with hamstring tightness. He was averaging 23.2 points and 8.8 assists per game this postseason, while shooting 55.6 percent from the field.
The Nets had better news when it came to Jeff Green, who has been upgraded to questionable for game four. Green has been battling plantar fasciitis since game two of the first round against the Celtics.
Brooklyn goes for a 3-1 series lead on Sunday in Milwaukee at 3 p.m. Sunday.
