The Brooklyn Nets will get Caris LeVert, Jarrett Allen and Joe Harris back for the team’s final “seeding game” against the Portland Trail Blazers on Aug. 13.

The three players sat out the team’s last game against the Orlando Magic on Aug. 11.

LeVert sat out with a bruised thigh, Allen with a left ankle injury and Harris with a groin injury, but it was really a rest day for them.

Despite returning to play, all three could have their minutes limited against the Trail Blazers, as the Nets are locked into the No. 7 seed in the Eastern Conference.

The Nets have exceeded expectations in the “bubble” so far, as they are 5-2 with notable wins over the Los Angeles Clippers and Milwaukee Bucks.

In the NBA restart, LeVert is averaging 22.6 points, 4.6 rebounds and 6.2 assists per game, Allen is averaging 16.0 points, 11.0 rebounds and 4.2 assists per game and Harris is averaging 20.2 points, 4.6 rebounds and 0.6 assists per game.
