Coach Kenny Atkinson said both Rondae Hollis-Jefferson and Caris LeVert will be out until after the NBA All-Star break, and then get reevaluated. After another listless, low-energy loss, the duo can’t come back fast enough.

The Nets lost 114-101 to the Clippers on Monday at Barclays Center and played sieve-like defense that underscored how much they missed Hollis-Jefferson.

“We miss his defense. We miss his rebounding, there’s no doubt about it, miss his versatility, those things,” Atkinson said. “He won’t be back. He’ll miss [Indiana on Wednesday]. And I’d throw Caris in there, too. He’ll miss [Indiana] and we’ll see after the All-Star break what that looks like.

“It’s hit us hard. We struggle without those guys. They’re two of our top defenders. [Hollis-Jefferson] is our top big defender, and Caris is obviously an excellent defender. So, yeah, we take a hit there. Unfortunately it is what it is. Our bench, they’re trying, but against a good team like [the Clippers] it was tough going. Couldn’t get stops.”

Certainly not enough. Joe Harris and D’Angelo Russell each had 16 points off the bench, but the defense got shredded.
