Troy Murphy Leaving Team on Road Trip

The official word from Avery Johnson and the Nets is that Troy Murphy is heading back to New Jersey because of a viral infection. He will not be available today against Chicago or tomorrow against the T-Wolves. Is a trade in the works involving Murph or is he actually sick? It seems a bit peculiar to me that they would send him home from the road trip just because he’s sick but who knows.

Jordan Farmar will not be available for the next two games either, leaving the Nets with only 10 warm bodies. Enjoy the game…
