Nets new aid Warren expected to return in November after two-year truce

According to ESPN's NBA insider Nick Friedel, the 29-year-old forward TJ Warren, newly acquired by the Brooklyn Nets in the offseason, still needs time to fully recover from a foot injury after a nearly two-year hiatus. Not yet ready for the new season.

Because Warren suffered a fractured left navicular bone, his last game was in the 2020-2021 season. He only represented the Indiana Pacers in 4 regular season games and was reimbursed for the season, averaging 29.2 minutes per game. Scored 15.5 points, 3.5 rebounds, and 1.2 assists while shooting 52.9 percent from the field.

He averaged 19.8 points, 4.2 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 1.2 steals and 0.5 blocks per game in the 2019-2020 season with the Pacers, playing an important role in helping the team win a winning streak.

However, Warren's fractured left navicular bone will take a long time to recover, and he has been reimbursed for last season, and he only participated in 4 games in the previous season. Even so, the Pacers did not abandon him, but waited for him to recover and return. But Warren is more interested in joining a strong team that can advance to the playoffs level, and signed a contract with the Nets in early July to officially join.

However, Warren's foot injury does not appear to be 100% healed and still needs to move forward on the road to recovery. Nets head coach Steve Nash said that this was expected, and that he has made good progress in his recovery and is expected to be able to make his debut with the new team in the early part of the regular season in November. As the No. 2 defense, Warren will help the Nets improve their overall defensive efficiency.
