Saturday night's game vs. the Raptors is sold out. Friday night's will likely sell out as well. Mikhail Prokhorov and a contingent of Russians is expected to make the short trip from Moscow to London Thursday. But will the star of the show, Deron Williams, be able to play in either game?
It sounds like he will. "I'm definitely playing tomorrow," Williams said after Thursday's practice. And there's more good news: Jordan Farmar practiced at full speed Thursday. Williams rested his strained right wrist and his bruised left hand at the team's two London practices.
Meanwhile, London has embraced the Nets, with BBC calling them "Jay-Z's team"...and awaits word on Kim Kardashian.
