Young Could Play Against Spurs
Second-year guard Nick Young, who has yet to play during the preseason due soreness in his left knee, practiced the last three days and could play at San Antonio tomorrow night if all goes well in the morning shootaround.
"He practiced all three days and he was really awesome today," Jordan said. "He was probably the best player in practice today. I would think that if he recovers tonight and tomorrow morning and is feeling fine, he'll play."
- Earlier today, the team released DerMarr Johnson and Linton Johnson, trimming the roster to 15 players. DerMarr Johnson had some strong moments during the preseason and made a case for himself as an option at guard, but the team elected to stick with Juan Dixon and Dee Brown, both of whom hold partially guaranteed deals. DerMarr and Linton had non-guaranteed contracts.
My question to Eddie: "Did DerMarr make things interesting for you with the way he played?"
Jordan: "They both made things interesting," Jordan said. "Both of those guys were right there on the cusp. They did a lot of good things for us and both were intriguing to us - DerMarr Johnson at 6-9, he played well in games. But we thought, overall, that we like the 14, 15 guys we have."
