Markel Brown has had a rough start to his NBA career. Over the summer, he broke his hand, but was ready for training camp and by most accounts doing well. Then, while on the China trip, he, like his coach and Kevin Garnett, was laid low by a stomach virus, missing the last three preseason games and a number of practices. Now, he's the only Net who hasn't played yet, declared inactive for each of the team's first six games.
And it doesn't sound like he's going to get minutes any time soon.
