Hornets' Jarrett Jack Out One Week With Sore Left Knee

Saturday February 11th, 2012

Jarrett Jack of the New Orleans Hornets is expected to miss at least a week with a sore left knee, according to the Associated Press.

After missing three games with the injury, the Hornets' starting point guard attempted to make a return Wednesday night in a loss to the Chicago Bulls. Jack played nearly 28 minutes against the Bulls but racked up just four points and three assists; the team has since shut Jack down again.

Hornets coach Monty Williams says Greivis Vasquez will start in Jack's place.
