Carter left in the second quarter with a sprained ankle, but he played an early role in dealing the Nets their second consecutive loss, aÂ 95-85 defeatÂ in their home debut.
Carter said he was hopeful that the injury would not force him to miss a game. â€œIâ€™m just going to be smart about it,â€ he said. â€œItâ€™s a long season and Iâ€™m already feeling better than I did before.â€
VinceÂ couldn’tÂ be making me regret this decision alreadyÂ — could he?
