The update from shootaround in Toronto on Friday is a mix of good and bad news. The good news is that Deron Williams (ribs) and Kris Humphries (shoulder) will play Friday night. The bad news is that the Nets are concerned about the status of Damion James' right foot. James will undergo an MRI on Saturday after the Nets return home.
The TBD news is that Marshon Brooks (ankle) is a game-time decision. If he can't play, Anthony Morrow will start at shooting guard. At small forward, DeShawn Stevenson will become the 10th different Net to start a game this season.
