BROOKLYN — Patty Mills will be available for the Nets on Wednesday night at Barclays Center when they host the Golden State Warriors, Nets coach Jacque Vaughn said after Tuesday’s practice. 

Mills practiced with the team and took part in a pickup game with several coaches and players after practice wrapped up. The Aussie did not travel with the Nets to Canada for Friday’s win over Toronto nor did he play in Sunday’s win in Detroit while he dealt with a non-COVID illness.

“Yes, Patty’s good to go,” Vaughn said. “Get that bug out him a little bit, so it’s good to see him healthy back on the floor and back at practice.”

The Nets coach also added that everyone else is good to go as well for Wednesday’s game, which kicks off a stretch of some of the better teams in the league going up against Brooklyn.

Mills has had a bit of a down year averaging 5.5 points per game this season and shooting 38.1% from the three-point range.  He did not play in eight of the last nine games for the Nets, but did play nearly 34 minutes against the Indiana Pacers on Dec. 10.
