The Nets injury woes continue, as Lawrence Frank announced after practice today that Brook Lopez, who hasn’t missed a game yet in his career, had sprained his ankle and would be day-to-day headed into tomorrow’s game in Denver.
The Bergen Record’s Al Iannazzone has some quotes from Brook, who didn’t need x-rays, despite the initial pain he felt when he apparently landed on someone’s foot in practice:
“There was initial pain,” Lopez said. “I don’t think it’s anything serious.”
Will you play tomorrow?
“I don’t know,” Lopez said. “Whatever [Tim Walsh] says. It feels fine right now. Trust me, watching film hurt a lot more.”
Fortunately, according to Iannazzone, it looks like Courtney Lee is good to go tomorrow, though it’s still a game-time decision.
