Former Kansas Jayhawks star guard Tyshawn Taylor has been held of of practice at Brooklyn Nets training camp all week with a strained quad and likely won't return until sometime next week, according to a report from the New York Post.

Taylor, who was taken by the Portland Trailblazers with the 41st pick in the 2012 NBA Draft before having his rights traded to the Brooklyn Nets, was a three-year starter for the Jayhawks and the team's leading returner in assists in 2011-12 and 2010-11.

The rookie guard hoped to be back to practice on Sunday, but Nets head coach Avery Johnson noted that Taylor would probably have to sit out a a little longer before he's ready to join his Nets teammates on the floor at the Barclays Center. The 22-year-old guard is battling for backup point guard minutes with C.J Watson in Nets training camp.
