Near Analysis - With Network Road Distance

I have a point dataset that I need to calculate the road network distance to the nearest section of polyline.  I have the following licenses:


1)  Network Analyst

2)  StreetMap Premium

3)  ArcPro/Desktop Basic (No Spatial Analyst or advanced tools)


Since there isn't a discrete point to calculate distance to in my polyline feature, it doesn't seem like a lot of the functionality of the network analyst will work (location-allocation, route solver, etc). 


I essentially need a "Near Analysis" but calculating road distance. 


Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!
