Deron Williams will miss the Nets' next two games, Wednesday vs. Golden State and Friday vs. the Clippers, to be with his wife in Dallas for the birth of their fourth child. Damion James is expected to miss the same two games as he recovers from the concussion he suffered in Saturday's win over the Raptors in London.
Expect Jordan Farmar to start at point guard, but don't expect to see Travis Outlaw back starting at small forward. That role will most likely fall to Sasha Vujacic. Quinton Ross (back) is also out at least two games, and Johan Petro (sick) will likely miss the Warriors game, meaning Brandan Wright and Dan Gadzuric will see action. All that leaves the Nets with just 10 healthy bodies.
