Eazy Yi Has an MCL Sprain

More bad news for the Nets. Because, clearly, they haven’t had enough of that lately: “The team is not discussing any timetable for the third-year player, but a typical recovery period for such an injury is two to four weeks, and it has been known to last as long as six. ‘It’s a shame; if you look at it, he had a good start to the season, he was aggressive and assertive in the first few games,’ Nets coach Lawrence Frank said Tuesday night. ‘You feel bad for him, and hopefully from a mental standpoint, he understands the preparation that’s required to come back.’ Yi, who was injured Monday night at Charlotte after taking a hit on his knee in the third quarter from Charlotte’s Gerald Wallace, joins Devin Harris (groin), Keyon Dooling (hip surgery), Tony Battie (knee), and Jarvis Hayes (hamstring) on the sideline, leaving Frank with only 10 players.”

    I think Yi generally gets a bad rap, but this guy might be the only human alive to collide with Gerald Wallace and actually be injured more severely than Wallace was.
