Kris Humphries was summoned into Avery Johnson’s office prior to the Nets’ 95-92 win over the 76ers Sunday, and the Nets coach delivered some sobering news to his usual starting power forward. “He just said he was starting Gerald [Wallace] and it was going to be inconsistent for me for a while,” Humphries said. “I really didn’t know it was going to be a DNP, but you’ve got to be ready to handle anything in the NBA. “Anybody wants to start and play as much as possible, so you are obviously frustrated. But it’s about more than one player.” Humphries never even peeled off his warm-ups, staying glued to the Nets’ bench. Sparkplug Reggie Evans backed Wallace up at power forward and Johnson said that’s the way his lineup is going to likely be for the near future. “He’s fine. He’s healthy. He’s not in the doghouse,” Johnson said. “Hey, we just had to try something else and we’ll see how long we can go with it.” via Newsday
