Ron Mercer, whose season has been shattered by left knee surgery and now a lower back strain, said yesterday he has not ruled out a return."
"Coach Lawrence Frank won't allow himself to count on Mercer or Jefferson, noting there's "no timetable" for either. Jefferson, Frank said, has "quickened the [rehab] process" on his left wrist. "It's going to be one of those 'summit' meetings. We won't do anything that will jeopardize his future," Frank said
