Nets expecting key wings Yuta Watanabe, T.J. Warren back by end of week

The Nets are expected to get back injured forwards Yuta Watanabe and T.J.

Warren by the end of this week, according to coach Jacque Vaughn.

Hopefully. We’re trending in that direction,” Vaughn said Sunday.

“Neither one has had a setback, so they’re still progressing. So hopefully, that does happen.”

When they’re both healthy, the Nets could have an enviable numbers crunch.

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

He’d scored in double figures in a career-high four straight and is leading the league in corner 3-point percentage.

His absence has forced Vaughn to overuse Royce O’Neale (more than 38 minutes in three of those four) and struggling Joe Harris.
