After having surgery related to a November hip operation, Detroit Pistons coach Larry Brown is out indefinitely.

When Brown can return will be determined by his doctors, Pistons spokesman Kevin Grigg said Tuesday.

Grigg wouldn't elaborate on Monday's surgery, except to say that it was successful.

The 64-year-old Brown missed six games early in the season after his hip procedure.

Assistant Gar Heard, who went 2-4 in Brown's first absence, again will run the team as long as Brown is unable to coach.

Hopefully we can get 7 seed :)

Orlando forward Stacey Augmon has been suspended for one game without pay for engaging in abusive behavior towards a member of the media by directing obscenities and throwing lotion.

Magic guard DeShawn Stevenson has been fined $7,500 for kicking the ball into the stands. The announcements were made today by Stu Jackson, NBA Senior Vice President, Basketball Operations.

Both incidents occurred following Orlando’s 98-82 loss to the New Jersey Nets on March 13 at TD Waterhouse Centre.

Augmon will serve his suspension during the Magic’s game at Sacramento tonight.

I can't understand why would someone throw lotion. Maybe a full bottle of lotion... but lotion?

Luck!

This is mind-boggling, but it looks like the Nets inherited the Yankees' aura and mystic ??? When the Yankees start losing (albeit World Series), the Nets been to the finals and playoffs.

Now, it's entirely up to the Nets if they still have the desire to win.

From what I read, he "doused" (squirted?) local reporters with lotion when asked something he didn't like. Maybe he just came from the shower, and that's what he's putting on. He must be really pissed. I wonder what the question was. :biggrin:

How would Brown's surgery help our playoff chances? I am unclear.

It does not.
OP is thinking ahead. It will help us in the first round, IF we can get the 7th seed.

Don't think he will return for the playoffs?

That's what they pay him for.

That's what I thought too. He came back after 6 games the first time around.
