It has been confirmed that Brooklyn Nets center, Brook Lopez, will be a game-time decision for Friday night’s game against the Houston Rockets.
This isn’t the only game Lopez has been questionable for. Via ESPN,
Lopez has missed the last seven games due to a sprained left ankle injury, which he suffered Nov. 15 in Phoenix. The 25-year-old is averaging 20.5 points, 6.5 rebounds and 2.8 blocks this season.
On top of that, Lopez isn’t even the only Nets player on the injury report. Mr. Deron Williams is also dealing with his own sprained left ankle.
Meanwhile, point guard Deron Williams did not travel with the team to Houston and will miss at least the next two games. He will be re-evaluated Monday, the team said.
Williams has already missed six games with the injury, and that number will surely rise. The Nets are losing players to injury often, and it’s showing. They are 4-11, which is good enough for fourth in the Atlantic division.
And that’s just the tip of the iceberg for the Nets’ injury woes. They are still going to be without Andrei Kirilenko and Jason Terry for a few more games at least.
Forward Andrei Kirilenko and guard Jason Terry are also not on the trip and both players will be out at least another week, the team said.
Kirilenko has missed 11 games due to back spasms, while Terry has missed four games due to a bruised left knee.
