Forward Mike Brown and guard Bobby Hansen will join the Jazz on the road but will not dress for games at Dallas Saturday and Seattle Tuesday, trainer Don Sparks said.
Hansen's cast was removed from his left hand late Wednesday night; he still has a small splint on two fingers. Hansen could play as soon as Wednesday at home against Chicago; activating him would require a roster move because he is on the injured list.Brown, who stayed on the active roster while recovering from complications of a thigh bruise, is now slightly ahead of schedule. "We're trying to work him hard every other day, and see what kind of response we get - so far, it's been good," said Sparks. Brown could play in a home game Dec. 7 or 9.
