Thorn: Yi Not Going Home for All-China Games

Rod Thorn put a quick end to speculation Yi Jianlian is headed home for China's internal "Olympics"...missing the Nets opening night. "The games they want him to be there are for the end of the month," Thorn said. "But our season starts on the 28th. So that's not going to work." Or, to put it more succinctly, "No, no -- he's not going to be away from Oct. 16th to the 28th." Nets open in Minnesota Oct. 28.
