Even More Bad News for the Nets

Just when you think things couldn’t possibly get any worse for New Jersey, they invariably do. As their season implodes, the team must now face the prospect of not having its best player for an extended period of time.

The Nets have just learned that Devin Harris’s shoulder injury is more severe than previously thought:

The Nets announced that the MRI taken on Devin Harris Tuesday confirmed that he has a sprained left shoulder, but also that he has a strained (with a T) deltoid muscle.

But here’s what you want to know: They also say there is no timetable for his return. You can assume that’s another way of saying they’ll reevaluate it next week, and that he’s a scratch until further notice.

It’s not time to throw in the towel, yet. But we’re getting awfully close.

Hope you like college hoops, Nets fans.
