Anthony Morrow Out 2-3 Weeks With Strained Hamstring

The New Jersey Nets announced today that Anthony Morrow's MRI revealed a strained hamstring that will sideline him for 2-3 weeks.  While the team will continue to be short-handed, the results are viewed as good news.  Morrow reported hearing a "pop" during pre-game warmups Tuesday and the team feared a tear would show up on the MRI.

With recently acquired Sasha Vujacic's status still unknown, Jordan Farmar will step in off the bench and start next to Devin Harris in the backcourt.

In 25 games, Morrow is averaging 12.8 points per game and is shooting a career-low 41% from beyond the arc.
