07:22 AM ET 11.19 | For two weeks now, Brandon Rush has been back -- in body, anyway. The Utah Jazz guard played two five-minute stretches in Brooklyn on Nov. 5, committing a pair of turnovers and never even launched a shot. He hasn't seen the floor since. "I expected to be back by now," Rush said Monday night after coach Ty Corbin said the guard would not play against the Warriors. ... In just the second game of the season last year, Rush was hit by Memphis' Zach Randolph as he drove to the basket for a dunk. He hit the floor with a torn ACL that ended his season. But Rush said his knee is not the problem right now. "I think it's just a mental thing right now," he said. "Everything else is physically fine. It's just getting over that hump."
