Shelden Williams has eye injury
NY Post Blog:
The Nets announced this morning that Shelden Williams, the only player to have endured all 52 games this season, did not fly to the West Coast with the team and is out at least until Apr. 5 with a right eye injury. So Williams will sit all four games (Warriors, Kings, Lakers, Blazers) of the Nets’ West Coast trip.
Williams was poked in the eye by Tyler Hansbrough in the second quarter during Wednesday’s home rout of Indiana. He was sent to Hackensack University Medical Center for added tests. The Nets did not release any additional information but apparently Williams did not suffer any permanent damage.
Then there is Jordan Williams who is listed as doubtful for the trip opener Friday at Golden State. Williams suffered what was labeled a “mild concussion” and is day to day. He took an inadvertent shot from Pacer center Roy Hibbert.
