The Brooklyn Nets have officially listed forward Kris Humphries as a game-time decision for tonight’s game against the Dallas Mavericks in Dallas, for some reason. The official report is that Humphries is still resting a sore lower back, but Humphries was removed from the rotation by Nets interim head coach P.J. Carlesimo after playing 2:16 against the Chicago Bulls on March 2nd and hasn’t played since, even as the Nets cruised to blowout victories and emptied their bench in garbage time.
There is currently no timetable for Humphries’s return to the rotation, regardless of his injury status. Humphries was officially listed as “DND (Did Not Dress)” with a lower back injury Monday night against the Detroit Pistons. The Nets won 119-82.
In 52 games (20 starts) this season, Kris Humphries averaged 5.5 points and 5.9 rebounds in 18.4 minutes per game. He is shooting 43.5% from the field, his lowest field goal percentage in a full season since he was a 20-year-old NBA sophomore in 2005-06, and has a PER of 13.1, again his lowest since that season.
In other Nets injury news, Keith Bogans will return to the rotation tonight after sitting Monday night’s victory out with an ankle injury.
