The Brooklyn Nets traveled to Orlando without 6 important rotational pieces, as the team will fight to remain in the 7th seed of the East.

According to Nets’ general manager Sean Marks, one of the replacement players will not be available for the first 5 games of the NBA restart.

In particular, Michael Beasley will serve a five-game drug-suspension. On the other hand, Tyler Johnson, another replacement player, will join the team in a few days, according to Newsday sportswriter Greg Logan.
