Brooks Tries To Get Over Rust

Since returning Friday from missing six games with a broken toe (and just before that three games with a bum achilles) MarShon Brooks has not seemed himself, being turnover-prone and tentative while scoring only 14 points in two games while shooting 4-for-14. So it's back to the gym.

"I’ve just got to get back in the gym, break a sweat, have the opportunity to shoot 200 or 300 shots back-to-back-to-back by myself and that’s all I’ll need," said Brooks. "I think after the three-day break, I’ll be all right.’’

Monday, the Nets plan a light workout with weight-training and some shootaround. Avery Johnson is planning an intense, training camp-style practice Tuesday before the Nets play five games in six days.
