Yi Out "Several Weeks" with Sprained MCL

The Nets had a short (both on time and bodies) practice on Tuesday, and it will get worse. Yi Jianlian is out for several weeks with a sprained MCL. Trenton Hassell still isn't with the team, but is expected back for Wednesday's game. Lawrence Frank is happy with an improved defensive effort, and says that back-up bigmen positions are open, except now they're not backup. On Tuesday, he went with Bobby Simmons and the four and Sean Williams at the five as a reward for hard work in practice.
