Brooklyn Nets Center Nic Claxton has missed the majority of the NBA season with an “undisclosed illness.”
Claxton is fully vaccinated, yet has struggled with his conditioning this season.
As someone who formerly had a job around collegiate basketball players, it’s a major red flag for an athlete of this caliber to miss entire games due to severe fatigue.
Claxton is a fit 22-year old with zero comorbidities.
Fully Vaccinated Brooklyn Nets center Nic Claxton will miss upcoming games due to an "undisclosed illness."

Why has he missed multiple games and had limited time in others?
The Brooklyn Nets have played 8 games thus far during the 2021-2022 season.
Claxton has played 4 games.
According to Nets Coach Steve Nash, it’s a non-COVID illness.
It’s nothing major, but he’ll be out for a while.
At least 7-10 days.
Nash says that Nic Claxton’s (non-COVID) illness is nothing major, but he’s going to be out a while. They’re not expecting him back for another 7-10 days…

Is something more serious going on with Claxton that the Nets refuse to publicly disclose?
After the Atlanta Hawks hid Brandon Goodwin’s COVID-19 jab induced blood clots from the public, I think that’s fair question.
Could something similar be happening to Claxton?

From Nets Daily:
The Nets will be without Nicolas Claxton for the next week to 10 days … at least.
Claxton, who is dealing with a non-COVID-related illness — not further described, is currently not feeling well but the illness is nothing to deem serious, according to Steve Nash.
“Nic is going to be out a little bit. He’s not feeling well. Nothing to be concerned with but I don’t think he’s going to be back in the next week or 10 days. Just an illness, but it’s nothing major or nothing we’re overly concerned with,” said Nash prior to Sunday’s game against the Pistons. “It’s just a little more severe illness than we thought initially and I think he’ll miss a little more time.”
The 22-year-old center admitted he was battling through a “little sickness” after Brooklyn’s preseason win against Minnesota on October 14. Claxton has struggled with his conditioning throughout the preseason and the first six games of the season.
Will the Nets provide answers to the NBA universe?
I doubt it.
My bet is they’ll find a way to blame this on Kyrie Irving for refusing to bend the knee to medical tyranny.

Prayers that Nic Claxton makes a speedy recovery and the Nets organization provides some honesty.
