Nets C Okur out indefinitely
New Jersey Nets center Mehmet Okur has been sidelined for six weeks and will not be back anytime soon.
The Nets announced Friday that Okur will be sidelined indefinitely due to chronic back problems.
The 32-year-old Okur has appeared in only 17 games with New Jersey, averaging 7.6 points and 4.8 rebounds.
The Nets acquired Okur in December after leading scorer Brook Lopez suffered a broken foot.
Okur was limited to just 13 games last season because of a hip injury.
