The New Jersey Nets have waived guard Keith Bogans, just a day after he underwent surgery that will keep him sidelined for the remainder of the season.

Bogans had a torn deltoid ligament repaired, as well as a fractured left ankle, injuries he suffered last week during a loss to Detroit. He played just five games for New Jersey after signing on February 1 and averaged 4.2 points with 2.2 rebounds.

The Nets filled the roster spot by signing forward Andre Emmett to a 10-day contract. Emmett had been playing for the NBA Development League's Reno Bighorns and was second in the league in scoring with an average of 23.7 points in 24 games.

Emmett, selected by Seattle (now Oklahoma City) in the second round of the 2004 NBA Draft, played in eight games for Memphis in 2004-05. The Texas Tech product has averaged 15.7 points and 4.9 rebounds in 105 D-League games.
