on

Former NC State ACC Player of the Year T.J. Warren isn’t ready to go for the start of the 2022-23 NBA season, and his foot will be re-evaluated in November.

“T.J. we’re going to assess again in November. He’s doing great, he’s building up. We knew this going in. We also don’t want to take big risks with T.J. He’s been out for two years, so it’s a process that we want to be very confident in and make a firm decision as an organization not to rush him.” – Nets Head Coach Steve Nash (Link)

Warren has been plagued with a foot injury (2 stress fractures in his left foot) that has limited him to only playing 4 games over the past two seasons.

Prior to the the injuries as of late, Tony Buckets averaged a career high 19.8 points, while shooting an impressive 52.9% from the field and 40.3% from three.

The Nets signed Warren to a 1-year “prove it” deal worth $2.63 million. Warren has made $58.23 million through his first 8 seasons, prior to signing this contract.

Warren’s career scoring average of 15.5 points per game is the second highest by a former NC State basketball player, trailing only the legendary David Thompson (22.7).
