New Jersey Nets Notes, Quotes 2009-11-14

New Jersey Nets Notes, Quotes 2009-11-14--Forward Chris Douglas-Roberts, who came down with the first acknowledged case of swine flu in the NBA, admitted the illness left him drained and weakened. Douglas-Roberts played 18 minutes at Orlando Friday.

"I'm better, but it took a toll on me," Douglas-Roberts said. "I'm feeling much better. I'm not all the way back to 100 percent but I'm better than I was.

"It was real tough, mainly because you just feel so submissive when you're sick. And people hear swine flu and think you're about to die," Douglas-Roberts added. "I was really secluded to my room. My mom came. She was coming in with a mask on. I didn't even want to walk around the house. Somebody comes in with a mask on, it just makes you feel real contagious. I just stayed pretty much in bed."

--Coach Lawrence Frank reached out to his former boss, Byron Scott, who was fired by the Hornets. Frank related how the coaching community comes together whenever there is such a loss.

"I left him a message. We didn't connect, but I left him a message," said Frank, who served on Scott's bench coach with the Nets. "He did a great job. The guy was coach of the year 18 months ago. You look at when he got there, where the franchise was, where the franchise is. He left the franchise in a much better place. This is the nature of our business. As a coach and also as a friend you feel a great deal of empathy for him. His resume is extremely impressive. He'll land on his feet, but you feel horrible that it ended the way it did.

"We've all been through it. The great thing about coaches is there is a mutual admiration and respect because we understand the dynamics of the job."

QUOTE TO NOTE: "I felt pretty good really. I was wheezing but I felt that was a good thing. This was a game to get it out and see where my wind was so I really like that I decided to go." -- F Chris Douglas-Roberts after playing 18 minutes Friday in his return from a bout with the H1N1 virus.
