Josh Boone will begin pool workouts this week on his surgically repaired shoulder, but it now appears he will be out even longer than anticipated. Boone told reporters at the Jim Calhoun Charity Game that he should be ready to play "sometime just before the All-Star break, hopefully." The all-Star break is in late February, seven months after his July 20 surgery. The Nets had said he should be back within four to six months.
