Shelden Williams will get the job of guarding his former teammate Amare Stoudemire Saturday, Avery Johnson told beat writers Wednesday. And he's probably get a lot of minutes. Another possibility, Jordan Williams, will be out with severe dehydration for up to a week. J-Will has reportedly struggled early on. Johan Petro and D-Leaguer Dennis Horner are likely to back up S-Will.
Johnson admits he "doesn't have a whole lot of options" at power forward right now. The Nets, whose roster has been swept up in trade, is likely to start Deron Williams, Brook Lopez and Anthony Morrow. Johnson has said that if the Nets acquire anyone in a trade or free agency, if they can get to Newark, pass a physical and get familiar with the playbook, they could play.
