Joe Johnson, Andray Blatche and Reggie Evans all hurting but playing

USA TODAY Sports

Joe Johnson told beat writers Wednesday that he is basically playing on one leg and if this was a regular season game, he'd sit. But it isn't and he isn't. He's playing.

"I’m basically just a decoy, spot-up shooter. I can’t really do a whole lot," he said

Reggie Evans has some sort of flu and wasn't at practice. But he will be ready to fly to Chicago and play Thursday.

Andray Blatche's right calf is so sore. He hopes it will be 90 percent by Thursday. He swears he will play.

"There’s no doubt in our mind. We are the better team." he said

It's that time of year. Injuries mount up but fortunately (not luckily) the Nets injuries are not as bad as the Bulls. The Bulls official Twitter page reported Wednesday afternoon that "Kirk Hinrich didn't do much in practice & is day-to-day for Thursday's Game 6. Kirk said he is hopeful but needs to improve."

Johnson's injury is the worst. P.J. Carlesimo says he's not getting better but he's not getting worse either. "I'm giving it everything I got at this point," JJ said.
