The Nets announced Tuesday morning that Yi Jianlian had the stitches removed from his upper lip on Monday and will be able to participate in non-contact drills this week. He can practice fully next Monday and is expected to make his return next Wednesday (Dec. 23) against the Timberwolves. That may also be the next time we see Chris Douglas-Roberts in uniform again.
