Hump Out, Gaines Questionable, D-Will, Howard Mysterious

Kris Humphries, who made the Knicks frontcourt look ill on Monday, will be out with a sore calf Wednesday when the Nets battle Dwight Howard at Prudential Center. Also, the Nets reported that Sundiata Gaines (toe) is questionable but probably will play. On the other side of the ledger, Hedo Turkoglu didn't travel to New Jersey because of illness. Earl Clark and Jason Richardson are questionable.

But the big news out of Wednesday morning was the mystery surrounding the star of the evening, Howard. The object of the Nets affections avoided the media, quickly dashing past them at Prudential Center. And when the Nets beat writers asked Deron Williams if he and Howard had their traditional meal before playing against each other, D-Will responded, "I don't know. Did I?" Meanwhile, Stan Van Gundy just said "No" a lot.

The Nets are also planning a pyrotechnic show for pre-game.
