Anthony Morrow out 2-3 weeks

New Jersey Nets starting shooting guard Anthony Morrow underwent an MRI on Wednesday that revealed that his injured hamstring is not torn, but he will miss two to three weeks, the team announced.

That opens the door for backup point guard Jordan Farmar. Coach Avery Johnson said he will start alongside Devin Harris in the backcourt on Thursday night when the Nets host the Washington Wizards.

Johnson said little-used rookie guard Ben Uzoh will be able to spell Farmar and Harris off the bench.

The Nets are very thin at the guard position right now. They are hoping that recent acquisition Sasha Vujacic is able to play, assuming he passes his physical.

Vujacic, acquired by the Nets from the Los Angeles Lakers in the three-team trade that sent Terrence Williams to the Houston Rockets and Joe Smith to the Lakers, is expected to land in New Jersey at 3:30 p.m. ET Wednesday and see a doctor by 5 p.m.

In 25 games so far this season, the 24-year-old Farmar is averaging 10.3 points and 4.3 assists per game while shooting .345 percent from 3-point range.

Morrow, 25, is averaging 12.8 points per game and shooting .411 percent from beyond the 3-point arc in 25 games.

He suffered the injury during pregame warmups before the Nets' 82-77 loss to the Philadelphia 76ers on Tuesday night.
