Ariza injury news…

Daily News: Jackson said he expects Trevor Ariza to return to the practice court in April. He declined to say whether he believed Ariza could be a key contributor off the bench. Ariza has been sidelined for more than a month by a fractured right foot.

“I can’t guess on that,” Jackson said. “We’re really hopeful he will (be productive when he returns). With Trevor, his injury is such that when he does come back it probably will be just a matter of days before coming back full bore. When he comes back, and we anticipate it should be in April, he should be able to get back in rhythm.”
