— Brooklyn Nets (@BrooklynNets) November 4, 2013
Brooklyn Nets centers Brook Lopez and Andray Blatche both sat out of Monday’s practice following a 107-86 loss to the Orlando Magic with sprained ankles, according to the Brooklyn Nets. Lopez suffered a right ankle sprain, Blatche a left ankle sprain.
Neither injury is considered serious and both should play against the Utah Jazz, but this isn’t the first time Lopez has had an issue with his right ankle. In March 2012, Lopez suffered a right ankle sprain after playing five games in the NBA’s lockout-shortened season, causing him to miss the rest of the year. Lopez has also undergone multiple surgeries on his right foot, but those do not appear related.
