Hornets G Jack expected to miss a week
The Hornets say starting point guard Jarrett Jack is expected to
be out at least a week because of soreness in his left knee.
Jack had already missed three games because of the injury when
he returned on Wednesday night in a loss to Chicago. Jack played
nearly 28 minutes against the Bulls, scoring only four points to go
with three assists, well below his averages of about 15 points and
Jack’s absence means the Hornets are without four of their top
players for Friday night’s game against Portland. The Hornets also
are without shooting guard Eric Gordon (sore right knee), power
forward Carl Landry (sprained left knee) and 7-foot forward Jason
Hornets coach Monty Williams says Greivis Vasquez is expected to
start in Jack’s place.
