New Players for Jordan Brand Classic

The Jordan Brand Classic, which will be held at Madison Square Garden in New York, has one early exit with Michigan State bound Delvon Roe and another possible drop out with UCLA-bound Drew Gordon.
Recently, Roe underwent micro fracture surgery, and there are reports that he will not play from ESPN.
There have also been whispers that Gordon too maybe out of the game due to a knee injury as reported by ESPN.
"Everybody understands that Delvon will go but won't be able to play,"St. Edward coach Eric Flannery told the Cleveland Plain Dealer. "It's a great honor for him. He's doing great. He's going through full rehabilitation and he's walking without a limp, without crutches. If it was somebody else, maybe they'd move the rehab along quicker, but you want to proceed at a pace that keeps in mind what the future might hold for Delvon."
With two players possibly out of the Jordan Brand Classic National game, who will Nike seek out as their replacements? Which NYC hoopsters might have a chance at playing in the game?
As this story unfolds, stay tuned to NYCHoops for future updates on who might be the replacement players for the game. The Jordan Brand National game will be televised on ESPN2 on April 19th 2008. The Regional and International games will be webcasted over the Internet LIVE on The High School Basketball Network (HSBnetwork.TV)
