Armor Report: Dennis Horner to be Recalled by Nets

During the Nets 100-84 win Wednesday night over the Indiana Pacers, both Williams forwards, Shelden and Jordan, left the game with injuries.

The New Jersey frontline is in need of bodies and according to the Nets will re-acquire Springfield Armor forward Dennis Horner.

Horner made the team out of training camp as an invitee along with Armor teammates Jerry Smith and JamesOn Curry. The former NC State big man saw action in five games before being waived by the Nets on Jan. 18.

The 6-foot-9 Horner has played well all season for Springfield, averaging 17 points and 8.5 rebounds per contest. Recently, Horner has posted back-to-back double-doubles against Canton and Maine. In Saturday’s win over Canton, Horner had 21 points and 11 boards, while recording 29 points and ripping down 15 rebounds in Tuesday’s win over Maine.

Jordan suffered a mild concussion from an inadvertent elbow from Roy Hibbert in the third quarter. While Shelden was taken to Hackensack University Medical Center for further examination.

The carousel of players going and leaving for the Armor continue. Jerry Smith and Jeff Foote have both returned from 10-day stints with New Jersey and New Orleans.

Horner is now the first Armor player in history to be called up to the NBA twice.
