Okur Out, Brooks Game Time

Avery Johnson got his daily medical report today and there was good news and bad news. Under bad news (we have to start there), Mehmet Okur will be out Sunday with back spasms and will miss "a couple games," according to Johnson. Although an MRI was negative, Okur will see a back specialist.

The (sorta) good news is that MarShon Brooks received an unspecified injection Saturday and is a game time decision. The Nets still believe Brooks, who has missed three straight games with an achilles issue, has needed rest more than anything. An ultrasound of the affected area, taken Saturday as well, showed nothing. The team also confirmed Jordan Williams will be available vs. the Raptors following his call-up.
