GM King, Nets will stand pat amid injuries

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) -- Despite losing another injured player, probably for the season, New Jersey Nets general manager Billy King will not make any roster moves and vows that the struggling team will continue to play with the current roster.

King's declaration comes after the team lost reserve guard Keith Bogans to a broken ankle during Wednesday's loss to Detroit. Bogans was just signed as a free agent two weeks ago, but his broken ankle will require surgery on Monday, more than likely ending his season.

"I don't expect to bring anyone else in," King said in a Friday morning conference call. "I don't think we'll waive anyone to create a spot. We have 15 guaranteed spots on the roster and we'll go from there. I'm OK with the roster."
