Hornets' Stojakovic Sits As Precaution


Aw, Here It Goes!
In the TIMES-PICAYUNE, John Reid writes that "instead of playing alongside point guard Chris Paul, Peja Stojakovic watched backup Rasual Butler start in place of him Tuesday night. As a precaution, Stojakovic sat out the Hornets' preseason opener against the Dallas Mavericks at the Ford Center because of a strained quadriceps." Coach Byron Scott said that "Stojakovic could be ready for Friday's preseason game against the Orlando Magic."


All the teams are trying to prevent further injuries. Injuries tottally destroyed last years season.

This doesn't mean a whole much, it's better for him to miss pre season games then regular season games. I am pretty sure that he'll be ready for the season opener, like the article says they're just taking precuations.
