Update: Hollis-Jefferson turned in 10.4 points, 6.6 rebounds, and 2.2 assists per game over the course of five Las Vegas Summer League contests.
Analysis: Last season, as a rookie, Hollis-Jefferson proved to be a bright spot on an otherwise bleak Brooklyn roster. As he enters Year 2, the 21-year-old is now expected to be one of the Nets' most valuable players on both sides of the ball. One of the biggest hopes for Hollis-Jefferson was that he would spend the summer developing his perimeter game, and if the Las Vegas summer league was any indication, the former Arizona star still has ways to go before he becomes any sort of a true threat from outside. Over the five game span, Hollis-Jefferson shot just 25 percent from beyond-the-arc. If he can refine his game away from the basket, the 6-foot-7 guard may be poised for a strong sophomore season.
Hollis-Jefferson will have surgery later this week to repair a broken ankle.
The Nets said Monday that the swingman was diagnosed with a non-displaced fracture of the posterior talus in his right ankle and that a timetable for his return would be established after the procedure.
