Ankle Is Almost a Non-Issue, Says RJ - He Needs to Dominate, Say Writers

Richard Jefferson said that his ankle is "almost a non-issue at this point" Friday morning at shootaround. He didn't seem to be favoring his ankle Wednesday, but he didn't take the ball to the rim nor elevate the way he normally does. In their chats, both Dave D'Alessandro of NJ.com and John Hollinger of ESPN believe that RJ must control his matchup with Antoine Walker. "There is nothing about Antoine's game that should give Richard trouble," says D'Alessandro. Hollinger agrees: "Walker can't stay in front of him in the half court and wasn't even in the same ZIP code in transition."
