Injury leads to Sean May's release

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- The New Jersey Nets have waived forward Sean May.

Nets general manager Billy King said Tuesday that May suffered a stress fracture to his left foot during a workout last week. King said the team believes the four- to eight-week rehab period would not afford May a legitimate chance to make the roster.

May signed with the Nets on Aug. 9. The 6-foot-9, 266-pound May has averaged 6.9 points and 4.0 rebounds over 119 career games with Charlotte and Sacramento.
