Nets’ Van Horn Out With Broken Leg
ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) _ New Jersey Nets forward Keith Van Horn broke his left leg in Tuesday night’s 99-94 loss to the Orlando Magic and will be out 4-6 weeks.
The fourth-year forward was going after a rebound with Orlando’s Don Reid and Bo Outlaw in the second quarter when he landed awkwardly and broke his left fibula.
Van Horn, who will turn 25 on Oct. 23, averaged 19.9 points and 7.8 rebounds over his first three seasons. The 6-foot-10 forward was an All-America at Utah and was the second overall pick of the 1997 draft.
