Jonny Flynn was back on the court practicing with his teammates on a limited basis today after his doctor's visit in Colorado on Monday cleared him to jog and jump some this week and participate in full activity starting next week.
He said he still planned to take it easy and not rush things so he gives his surgically repaired hip more time to heal, but said he expects to play in games starting in mid to late November.
Also, Wes Johnson and Sebastian Telfair both say they're ready to go tomorrow.
Johnson wore a brace on his knee in practice that's intended to stabilize his leg and that bothersome hamstring muscle. He said he's not certain if he'll wear it tomorrow vs. Kings or not.
One more thing: Just for comparison's sake...Rudy Fernandez had a microdiscectomy -- a prodecure similar to the one Martell Webster had yesteday -- last December and he missed 19 games and almost exactly six weeks.
And...I'll be doing a live chat tomorrow starting at 12:30 to preview the season opener against Sacramento that night.
