Murphy Won't Return to the Team

During halftime of the Nets-Cavaliers game, Billy King told WFAN's Seth Everett that he thought Troy Murphy could return to the team soon.  He said he would talk with Murphy and his agent, the powerful Dan Fegan, about coming back. Apparently, he didn't talk to Avery Johnson.

"I haven’t heard that,'' Johnson told beat writers at Wednesday's shootaround. "I know we’ve been in contact with Troy and his agent. I haven’t heard a set time when he’s coming back. I’ll talk to Billy about it and I’ll address it tonight."

And Johnson did just that, telling reporters before the Nets played the Grizzlies that Murphy won't be returning.  Johnson also told reporters that Damion James will likely return February 14 vs.the Spurs, but may spent two games with the Springfield Armor.
