Sorry, but no recap of the Nets-Celtics' game. Didn't see and there's only so much you can glean from a box score, especially one that doesn't include Vince Carter.
Naturally, the Nets were going to have a hard time scoring with Carter. We saw that last year and that was with Richard Jefferson and Jason Kidd. Aside from that, the Celtics' 56-29 rebounding edge jumps out and Devin Harris' 0-for-8 performance.
But Yi Jianlian grabbed a preseason high three rebounds, which was three more than last game. And Ryan Anderson, whose ping-pong injury didn't prove serious, sounded as if he played aggressively.
As for tonight, Carter will be back against the Knicks, but the same four guys who were down will stay down: Josh Boone (chest discomfort), Eduardo Najera (wrist), Jarvis Hayes (hamstring) and Stromile Swift (back).
Coach Lawrence Frank said Najera and Hayes will see the doctor tonight. Until then, Frank doesn't know when the two veterans will be able to practice. They're hoping at some point this week. Boone is seeing a doctor for more tests today and there should be an update tonight.
The Barclays/Nets Community Alliance and Forest City Ratner will unveil a new playground at Public School 19 in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn tomorrow at 11 a.m. It's the first of eight Brooklyn playgrounds that will be funded in part by Barclays/Nets Alliance.
