The Nets open a four-game West Conference swing Monday in Memphis but Yi Jianlian won't be making the trip. Yi left the Garden Saturday with a very long boot to protect his high ankle spain. Although he said the sprain wasn't "too bad", there's no timetable for his return to action. It is, of course, Yi's third major injury this season and he now seems unlikely to play in much more than 50 games.
No word yet on who will replace him in the starting lineup with Josh Boone and Kris Humphries the two most likely candidates.
- Injured Yi Won't Join Nets - Al Iannazzone - In the 'Zzone
- Hurt Yi left behind, out indefinitely - Julian Garcia - The InterNets
