Charlotte Bobcats F/C Al Jefferson indicated that he should be able to return from a sprained right ankle.  Initially it was thought that he'd fractured his ankle but x-rays came back negative.

“I’m taking it day-by-day, but that’s my goal,” Jefferson said of playing against the Rockets in Houston opening night. “My ankle is healing really fast. Two days ago I was on crutches and now I’m in my regular shoes. I heal fast....The doctor made it clear it’s just a low ankle sprain. It’s very realistic (to play in the opener). If it were up to me, I’d be (out) another week, but I understand they want to take it really slow.”
