PLAYER NOTES

--G Jordan Farmar missed his sixth straight game with lower back strain Sunday, but both he and the team hope his stay in the infirmary is over. "Much better. Much, much better," Farmar replied when asked how he was feeling now compared to when he injured himself in warmups Jan. 28. Farmar went through a light workout over the weekend and is targeted for a Wednesday return. "Jordan had a nice little workout (Saturday) for about 45 minutes after," said coach Avery Johnson. "We hope to have him back for a full practice on Tuesday with the goal of him playing on Wednesday."

--F Quinton Ross has been sparingly used all season, but when he does play, he seems to make things happen. Sunday, Ross helped spark a mini-comeback by the Nets in the third quarter, when they cut a 17-point deficit to nine. Ross just shrugged. "Just working every day, coming to the gym, coming to practice and working hard. When the opportunity comes, you've got to be ready," Ross said.

--G Devin Harris admits that "sluggish starts" are plaguing the Nets but, like the coaching staff, he is exasperated about what can be done to remedy the problem. After another such start doomed the Nets in a Sunday loss to the Pacers, Harris, who had 13 points and seven assists, offered a couple of suggestions. "Try to change up your routine, work out differently before the game. You try different things to get off to better starts and get yourself going," Harris said.

MEDICAL WATCH

--G Jordan Farmar (lower back strain) could be back Wednesday against New Orleans. He has missed six straight games.

--F Damion James (broken right foot) is expected to remain out two more weeks but is scheduled to practice this week. He underwent surgery to have a screw inserted to help repair a fractured fifth metatarsal. He was injured Dec. 9.
