This season is turning from bad to worse for the Nets as it has been revealed that Damion James has a broken foot and is likely to miss at least a month of basketball, just days after cracking the starting lineup.
“Bad news for the kid and bad news for us,” (Avery) Johnson said.
Quinton Ross got the start for James yesterday against the Lakers, though Johnson said “everyone was an option” including Terrence Williams. My guess is Travis Outlaw may get his spot in the starting lineup back. I can’t imagine Avery going with Ross long-term, unless this really is going to be a replay of last season, with Ross assuming the role of Trenton Hassell.
