Haywood To See Specialist, Jamison down
Center Brendan Haywood, who missed tonight's presason opener at Dallas with a wrist injury, will be in New York tomorrow to see a hand specialist. Haywood also met with hand specialist today and according to a source familiar with the situation, the specialist advised Haywood to undergo a surgical procedure that would require him to miss between four to six months.
I spoke with president Ernie Grunfeld, who said that the team is waiting to hear about tomorrow's consultation before drawing any major conclusions.
Haywood injured the wrist during a training camp practice last week and has not played or practiced since. The injury was originally called a sprain but Haywood has continued to experience pain and discomfort. Etan Thomas started at center tonight.
- Uh oh......Antawn Jamison just went down clutching his right knee here in the first quarter. The knee appeared to buckle as Jamison closed out to defend Dirk Nowitzki. He rolled around on the court in obvious pain while grabbing the knee and had to be helped off to the lockeroom by teammates and trainer Eric Waters.
Jamison was putting no pressure on the right leg as he left the floor. The early official word is that it's a sprained right knee. Tha's all I know so far. I'll update as fresh information becomes available.
-Nick Young (sore right knee) and Juan Dixon (sore left calf) are not playing tonight. Young will be evaluated tomorrow while Dixon told me that he hopes to return for Friday's home game against Detroit.
