Penney to be eased back into Breakers

5:41 am on 26 November 2009

The New Zealand Breakers host the Cairns Taipans tonight in an Australian National Basketball League match which will see the return of guard Kirk Penney, who 's missed nine of their 12 games so far with a back injury.

Although the Breakers won five of the nine their scoring rate slipped without Penney, who'll be eased back from the bench at the North Shore Events centre.

Coach Andrej Lemanis says being able to call on him again won't just ease the load for the orther sharp-shooting guard, CJ Bruton,.
