Avery: 13 of 15 Nets Ready To Go

Avery Johnson told beat writers Saturday that all the Nets, other than Brook Lopez and Jordan Williams, will be ready for action Monday when the Nets open in Washington vs. the Wizards. Lopez, of course, is recovering from foot surgery and Williams hasn't practiced after a bout of dehydration.

Mehmet Okur arrived about 1 a.m. Saturday, got 2-3 hours of sleep, but looked "OK" at practice, said Johnson. He'll play Monday. Okur said his sister, who lives in New York, nearly fainted on hearing the news of the trade. WIth Ime Udoka cut, Okur's long time uniform number, 13, is available for him. In other number news, DeShawn Stevenson will wear 92, Dennis Horner has switched from 40 to 31, and Shawne Williams is 7.

It was family day at the PNY Center, meaning Candace Parker, aka Mrs. Shelden Williams, was around while another celebrity wife (whose name must not be spoken) wasn't.
