Rondae Hollis-Jefferson was forced out of the Nets’ win in Phoenix with a right-hip contusion. Neither he nor coach Kenny Atkinson would rule him out of Tuesday’s game at the Nuggets.

“He got hit in the hip. We’ll evaluate [him Tuesday] morning and see if he’s ready to go,” Atkinson said.

Hollis-Jefferson had four points and two boards in 16:33 of action, leaving after a collision with Suns big man Alex Len.

“I’m good, man. I’m good. I got hit to the hip, but I’m good. It was on the last shot, trying to get the rebound, I got hit. I got hit by a big guy,” Hollis-Jefferson said. “He was tough. It’s always a battle, especially when you’re undersized. So just going out there competing at the end of the day, you know what you’ve got to do. I felt like I did that.”

Hollis-Jefferson wasn’t giving up hope of facing the Nuggets.

“A little sore. Just going to see how it feels,” he said. “You’ve just have to wake up and see how it feels, talk to people you need to talk to and go from there.”
