On Saturday, Brooklyn assigned Graham to the Long Island Nets so he could participate in the G League team’s practice. The tweet announcing that Graham would practice with Long Island did not discuss when he’ll return to action.
Graham, 25, has been out since the third game of the season back in October. He strained his hamstring in the Nets game at the Garden October 19.
In tweeting out the announcement, the Nets didn’t suggest when Graham, who played for the Hornets last season, would be available.

The Nets see Graham as a 3-and-D guy who has a career three point shooting average of better than 40 percent and his athleticism and bulk give him an advantage over smaller player at swing positions.
There was a mini-controversy about the injury and Graham’s recovery time a few days after Graham went down. Shams Charania reported that Graham would be out for two months and that he had a hamstring tear. Kenny Atkinson countered by saying the Nets didn’t know how long Graham would be out and called the injury a hamstring strain.
“It’s a strain. That’s our vernacular,” said Atkinson. “They must have access to other information. It’s a strain.”
