By John Reid, The Times Picayune

The New Orleans Hornets’ biggest offseason acquisition, Emeka Okafor , was held out of contact work for the second consecutive day because of soreness below his knee, Hornets Coach Byron Scott said after Wednesday’s practice.

“We’re just trying to limit him right now, but we will find out a little more tomorrow,’’   Scott said. “We have some concerns of something that he did this summer, so we just want to make sure he’s OK before we try to put him through a full day of practice.’’

Scott did not rule out the possibility that Okafor could be held out for the remainder of training camp, which concludes Sunday at the University of Louisiana-Lafayette.

Okafor experiments with new training methods

The Charlotte Observer reports, speaking of smart players and tinkering, Emeka Okafor once again spent the off-season experimenting with new training methods.

He looks trimmer than he did, but says he's slightly heavier than last season at around 265 pounds.

Okafor said he did a series of very specific exercises to work individual muscle groups. The goal was to break up some scar tissue that he felt was hurting his flexibility, without losing strength.
