The Brooklyn Nets will be without starting center Brook Lopez for the next two games after Lopez suffered a mild sprain in his right foot. Lopez has been plagued by foot injuries since last season.
Lopez underwent x-rays on the injured foot, which came back negative. The Nets announced the news on Twitter:
The earliest Lopez could return to the court for the Nets would be December 7th against the Oklahoma City Thunder.
Brooklyn is currently sitting at 10-4 at the top of the Eastern Conference’s Atlantic division in a tie with their cross-town rivals — the New York Knicks. Without Lopez, the Nets will be thin in the front court.
