The Brooklyn Nets are expected to get back injured forward Yuta Watanabe by the end of this week, according to the team’s head coach Jacque Vaughn.

“Hopefully. We’re trending in that direction,” Vaughn said on Sunday. “Neither one has had a setback, so they’re still progressing. So hopefully, that does happen.”

Watanabe sat out his fourth straight game with a tight right hamstring.
