Brook Lopez to miss two games with foot sprain

Brooklyn Nets starting center Brook Lopez will miss the next two games with a mild right foot sprain, the team announced today. That means Lopez will miss the Florida trip, marked by two away games against the Orlando Magic & Miami Heat.

Lopez injured the foot during last night’s game against the Boston Celtics. He played just 17 minutes due to foul trouble and did not show any immediate signs of injury, though Rod Boone reported that the Nets requested a walking boot last night.

Andray Blatche will presumably start in his place.

  1. It’s good that he’s getting rest, and they’ll almost definitely still beat Orlando without him, but despite how well Dray has played, I think this wipes out some hope of them beating Miami. Still, I’d definitely take an 11-5 start to the year, especially considering how putrid they’ve been the past few seasons.
