Shelden Williams will be out until at least April 5 with an eye injury and Jordan Williams is doubtful Friday after suffering a mild concussion. No word on Jordan Williams' return. Both were hurt during the Nets' win over the Pacers. That could leave the Nets with nine healthy bodies, including D-League call-up Dennis Horner, for the Warrior game in Oakland.
The Nets PR Department tweeted the news shortly before 10 a.m. ET. The Nets are practicing Thursday in San Francisco. Horner was traveling Thursday night. The news means that the Nets will almost certainly surpass 200 missed games due to injury, illness and personal matters this season. A year ago, in an 82-game season, the Nets missed 129 games.
