The Nets have excused Troy Murphy from the team, according to Al Iannazzone of The Record.
New Jersey general manager Billy King is expected to address Murphy's absence on Thursday.
The forward has been mentioned in the proposed three-team trade that would send Carmelo Anthony to the Nets.
Since coming over in a trade with the Pacers last summer, Murphy has appeared in just 18 games for the Nets.
