Jazz guard Brandon Rush to play first game in over a year vs. Nets

Jennifer Stewart-US PRESSWIRE

The five-year guard will play Tuesday night in Brooklyn

Brandon Rush will play Tuesday night against the Brooklyn Nets just over a year after tearing his ACL, according to Aaron Falk of the Salt Lake Tribune.

The official Utah Jazz Twitter account confirms.

Rush, 28, is a career nine-point per night guy suited best playing off the bench, though he did start 64 games for the Pacers in 2009-10.

He is a good defender and has shot over 41 percent from behind the arc in his career.

Last summer he was traded -- along with Richard Jefferson and Andris Biedrins -- to the Jazz in a salary dump move that cleared the path for the Warriors to sign Andre Iguodala.

Rush last played on Nov. 2, 2012, when he tore his ACL in the first quarter against the Memphis Grizzlies.
