Nets' James has sprained elbow

7/2/2010 - NBA New Jersey Nets

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- New Jersey Nets rookie Damion James has a sprained right elbow.

James, who was acquired in a draft-draft deal with Atlanta, missed the Nets rookie and free agent practice on Friday. His status for next week's summer league in Florida is uncertain.

The 6-foot-7 James averaged 18 points and 10.3 rebounds as a senior at Texas.

The Nets sent the rights to guard Jordan Crawford and German center Tibur Pleiss to the Hawks for James, the 24th pick overall. Jordan was the 27th pick in the draft and Pleiss the 31st

New Jersey took power forward Derrick Favors with their first pick at No. 3.
