Deron Williams will miss the Nets' next two games, Wednesday vs. Golden State and Friday vs. the Clippers, to be with his wife in Dallas for the birth of their fourth child. Damion James is expected to miss the same two games as he recovers from the concussion he suffered in Saturday's win over the Raptors in London.
Expect Jordan Farmar to start at point guard, but don't expect to see Travis Outlaw back starting at small forward. Quinton Ross (back) is also out at least two games, and Johan Petro (sick) will likely miss the Warriors game. That leaves the Nets with just 10 healthy bodies.
Cons: No superstar to help get easy looks. Damion was finally back. Chemistry issues will probably continue
Pros: Opens up more time for Brandan Wright. Uzoh gets some time as well. Allows Outlaw to play mostly SF.
