It could have been worse. The Nets feared that Anthony Morrow had torn his hamstring which might have required surgery and long layoff. Instead an MRI showed the Nets starting shooting guard only strained it. Still that will keep him out 2-3 weeks.
In his place, Jordan Farmar will start next to Devin Harris,meaning that both newly acquired Sasha Vujacic and rookie Ben Uzoh will see more minutes, starting Thursday against Washington. John Wall, the Wizards' electric rookie point guard, may also sit.
Meanwhile, Fred Kerber suggests the acquisition of draft picks wasn't the original intent of trade talks..."getting rid of Williams apparently was."
