Brook Lopez Has a Sprained Ankle

by November 24, 2009

It’s as though the universe is conspiring against the Nets these days, who are four losses away from tying one of the most dubious NBA records: “Like Lawrence Frank, whose winless Nets are only four defeats shy of tying the record for the worst start in NBA history, Brook Lopez is also now day-to-day. As if they haven’t had enough injuries during their 0-13 start, the Nets could be without their starting center Tuesday night in Denver when they start a critical four-game trip out West. Lopez sprained his right ankle in practice Monday before the team flew to Denver, accompanied by a cloud of doubt hanging over Frank’s future. ‘I don’t think it’s anything serious,’ said Lopez, the team’s second-leading scorer and only member of its starting five to make all 13 starts. ‘Trust me, watching films hurt a lot more.”‘
