Winners of four straight and six of seven, if the Nets are going to continue their recent surge under interim head coach P.J. Carlesimo on Friday night against the Phoenix Suns, they may have to do so without one of their top offensive weapons.

The 12th year shooting guard was not present at PNY Center.
