Default Jefferson out 4-8 weeks

Type 2 ankle sprain...now I really wish he had rested a bit longer. I'm not saying he's injury prone...but he has gotten injured a lot the past two or 3 seasons. I do understand that sometimes it was because of other players though, Billups with the wrist and he landed on Shaq last night for the ankle. Either way this is horrible news, who starts in Jefferson's place, Wright or Nachbar?

shouldn't have played since he was slightly injured... now it get worse... sigh...

I'm thinking they start House... but since he's inured too, i think Wright will start...

pretty convincing performance against the Heat...

If Wright starts I'm guessing it would be as Shooting Guard and Vince moves to Small Foward.

John Hollinger must be laughing his asss off now.


sorry John, injuries are not something that you can predict. it was a hit or miss thing. try again.


Nets will have to give Mile Ilic burn now possibly.

ya, either that or wright has the size to play the three-spot himself.

this is exactly why i was so pleased wright and boki took 'the next step' this offseason. sure there'll be some dropoff in production (altho prolly not as much as ppl think), but this is just the kind of extra game time these guys can use. adams too, actually. not to sound like a broken record, but this will help the team down the road.

now if RJ got injured near the end of the season then i'd be angry and depressed for sure.

I hope to see Hassan play a little and take Wright's spot off the bench.

i'm not sure i follow you. in other words, would they play three big men (krstic and twin and one of those two) at times to take up the slack for RJ? it seems highly unlikely, but maybe i'm missing the point.

anyway as i understand it, ilic' role this season is to work his ass off in practice and sit his ass on the bench and soak up everything he can during games.

well, if RJ is sitting out, Wright will be the #1 candidate to play at the SG position (i dont think he is strong enough to play D at the 3 position)

however that bumps everyone in the depth chart up.


Boki seems restricted to the four right now as part of the Nets "small ball" lineup, but because the swingman rotation has now been cut down to 3, Frank may have to run a lineup in which Boki plays 3 and he plays a traditional lineup of two big men.

therefore, with the only rotation of Collins/Robinson right now, do you think he will employ Moore and Ilic more frequently?

This just means Antoine Wright and Marcus Williams get more playing time. Obviously Jefferson is a big loss, but we'll survive...

Why not just start Marcus Williams at the 2 guard position?

Marcus is not exactly a shooter, and he cannot defend bigger two guards. I thought a Knick fan of all people would know never to start a small point guard in the off guard position.


besides, Marcus has been making a number of rookie mistakes.

i'm still not sure i'm following you since krstic should still be getting his minutes, but maybe it just means i don't know. certainly i'd love to get moore a few minutes each game to keep him relevant and motivated, and it would be nice to give ilic a taste of what the real deal is once in a while. hopefully we get some blowouts here and there and can spread out the minutes more in garbage time.

i know i'm being unrealistic a little bit in wanting so many people to play and that it's prolly rare to have an effective platoon system. somehow hubie brown pulled it off for that one season a couple years ago. but it must help that this is one of the more unselfish teams around the league. in a way this is frank's biggest season as a head coach since he has more potential at his fingertips than he's ever had before and some pressure to get over his tendency to punish people a little too much for making mistakes. if he handles everything right i see us going back to the finals. if he doesn't, i see another disappointing season and little development to show for it.

fortunately he's intelligent, canny, a very hard worker and most of all seems to be wisely distributing minutes for the long haul for the most part.

Wright is 6'8'' or 6'6" but still taller than VC, so they should start him at SF
