New Jersey Nets News, Shelden Williams Injury Update: Williams (Eye) Out At Least A Week

Shelden Williams, the only New Jersey Nets player who suited up for each of the first 52 games, will be sidelined at least until April 5 after suffering an eye injury, according to a New York Post report.

With Williams shelved, the Nets are expected to re-sign 6-foot-9 forward Dennis Horner on Friday. Horner began the season with New Jersey after impressing during training camp, but played just five games before being released and heading back to the D-League. During his time with the Nets, Horner averaged 0.8 points and 0.6 rebounds in 3.2 minutes.

The Nets continue to be struck by the injury bug. Jordan Williams is doubtful for Friday's road game against the Golden St. Warriors due to concussion-like symptoms, Brook Lopez continues to sit with an ankle injury, Anthony Morrow has missed two straight games with a bruised shoulder and Jordan Farmar has a sore groin.
