The Western Conference-worst New Orleans Hornets could use some good news. Unfortunately, they'll have to wait a little longer for it.

Neither starting point guard Jarrett Jack nor starting center Emeka Okafor took the court Wednesday due to sore left knees when the team had a rare shining spot, beating the Milwaukee Bucks 92-89, the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

And while Jack could be back Friday night, it isn't clear when Okafor will return, the paper notes, though he will at least be missing the next four games before the All-Star break. He didn't leave with the team on its road trip.

"It's one of those weird deals," coach Monty Williams said of Okafor's injury, the Times-Picayune reports. "I'm not going to get too detailed about that. It is what it is. We have a lot of guys who are hurt, but they're playing. From that standpoint, like I always say, you have a bunch of guys who are ready and strapping it on, you take those guys and do the best you can."
