A few notes from today's practice: MarShon Brooks became ill a severe headache and was excused from practice. He is questionable for tomorrow's game against the Knicks. Jordan Crawford left the team this morning due to a death in the family and he will miss tomorrow's preseason game against the Knicks. Our condolences go out to Jordan and his family. Avery Bradley had injured his left index finger during training camp in Newport. He had his left hand wrapped after practice today. X-rays were negative and doesn't expect to miss any time with the injury. Phil Pressey logged a DNP during the first game but Coach Stevens today said that we will see a lot of Pressey at the point guard spot in Wednesday's game vs the Knicks. Pressey stayed for half an hour after practice to get some extra shooting work in. He was the last player off the court. Pressey has the prime spot for a young point guard in the locker room. He has Rajon Rondo to his left and Avery Bradley on his right. Coach Stevens mentioned both defense and positioning as areas that the team needs to improve. Hopefully rebounding is on the list for improvement as well. Kris Humphries wants to run. From Green Street: Meanwhile, the first thing out of Humphries’ mouth upon meeting Stevens was, “Hey, let’s run” — a departure from a Nets system that didn’t maximize his skills last season — and Monday’s performance in a 97-89 loss to the Raptors didn’t cut it, so he dragged Jeff Green with him to run postgame sprints on a couple treadmills. “We want to play at a faster pace,” said Humphries, still dripping in sweat from the workout. “Jeff and I actually did a little bit of extra conditioning after the game, just to kind of get us going a little bit more, so we can build to the start of the season.” You have to love that kind of attitude. And the chemistry that Humphries is building with his teammates also: Sullinger pretended to hold a microphone to Humphries' face during media availability. Hump joked, "Sullinger needs to clip his nails." — Jay King (@ByJayKing) October 8, 2013 [Discuss on CG Forums!]
