Yuta Watanabe coming off Nets' bench for Game 1 on Saturday
Brooklyn Nets forward Yuta Watanabe will play with the second unit Saturday in the team's game against the Philadelphia 76ers.
Dorian Finney-Smith sat out the regular season finale due to injury management purposes. Now, for Game 1 of the First Round of the Eastern Conference Playoffs, he's back in the mix. He'll immediately start, sending Watanabe back to a role off the bench.
In 58 games this season, Watanabe is averaging 5.6 points, 2.4 rebounds and 11.5 FanDuel points.
