Brooklyn Nets guard Tyler Johnson will start in place of Joe Harris for the team’s Game 3 against the Toronto Raptors.
Harris left the NBA campus in Orlando after Game 2 due to a non-medical personal matter.
Given that Harris would likely require a four-day quarantine upon returning, he will miss Game 4 on Aug. 23 and potentially Game 5 (if necessary) on Aug. 25.
In the first two games off the bench against the Raptors, Johnson is averaging 9.5 points, 1.5 rebounds and 2.5 assists per game in 19.5 minutes per game.
Without Harris, the 28-year-old will be more involved going forward.
