Yi Jianlian looked good on return from his knee injury last month. But he has once again regressed, looking somewhere between awkward and awful. Now the Nets think he may need a rest. He's been playing with both a bad right shoulder and back. In 19 games before he hurt his shoulder, Yi scored in double figures 14 times. In nine games since, he reached double figures three times.
