Richard Jefferson met with the media before Wednesday's game and said that he would not risk further injury by returning to the Nets' lineup too soon. Jefferson had surgery last Monday to clean loose bodies out of his right ankle and is currently wearing a protective boot and using crutches.

I don't see him coming back anytime soon, I believe that he wants to make sure that he's 100% before he does come back, because he doesn't want any more ankle problems in his career, and he knows that he cannot really help his team if he plays injured.

This will hurt the Nets in a bit, but I think they can still reach the playoffs without him.
