The Nets have a potential mess on their hands Wednesday night when they suit up against the Charlotte Bobcats. They may be without four key players, as they look to try and catch the Toronto Raptors atop the Atlantic Division standings.
We know that they won't have Kevin Garnett (back spasms) in the lineup, but here's what else we might be looking at:
Kirilenko says he won't play tonight.— Andy Vasquez (@andy_vasquez) March 26, 2014
Marcus Thornton (bruised lower back) said his status for tonight is "kind of iffy."— Andy Vasquez (@andy_vasquez) March 26, 2014
Deron Williams isn't at shootaround. Will be a GTD with an illness.— Andy Vasquez (@andy_vasquez) March 26, 2014
So, there you have it. No Garnett, no Andrei Kirilenko and possibly no Deron Williams or Marcus Thornton. If that's the case, we're going to get plenty of Jorge Gutierrez and some Marquis Teague tonight. We'll continue to update as we learn more.
