Brook Lopez, Nets brass upbeat about recovery

Brook Lopez was at practice Friday, in street clothes, but without a boot, seemingly upbeat after getting the word that he'll be out for 10-to-14 days with a mild mid-foot sprain on his surgically repaired right foot.  Why so upbeat, as he and Nets brass noted, it could be a lot worse. As Rod Boone tweeted, Billy King isn't overly worried about Brook Lopez's latest foot injury. Why? "Because it's not broken," King said. #Nets — Rod Boone (@rodboone) October 17, 2014 For the Nets, missing Lopez for a few preseason games is much preferred to losing him for an extended period --and...

ESPN #NBARank locks Lopez in at No. 49

Brooklyn Nets center Brook Lopez came in at No. 49 in this season’s installment of ESPN #NBARank, posting a 6.88 rating. Lopez, who was limited to just 17 games due to a season-ending foot injury, ranked 28th in 2013. The 26-year-old finds himself this in this spot because of his health. If he’s scoring the way he has been this preseason, it’s extremely plausible he’ll regain at least around his old rank. Again, a look at where all the Nets were ranked -- based on 2013 rank: Lopez: 49 (down) PG Deron Williams: 55 (down) SG/SF Joe Johnson: 59 (even) C/PF Mason Plumlee: 112...

Brook Lopez "far ahead" of where Nets thought he would be

Buried in a lot of the praise for Brook Lopez's game so far this season was this comment from Paul Westphal, the Nets lead assistant who filled in for an ill Lionel Hollins vs. the Kings in Shanghai. "I think Brook is getting himself in shape," said Westphal. "He’s far ahead of where we were afraid of where he was going to be. He’s getting his timing." The numbers seem to back up what Westphal as does the eye test. He looks like the same Brook Lopez who went under the knife in January. He's averaging 19 points a game, shooting 56 percent from the floor and 83.3 percent from the line....

Nets observations: Lopez looking good so far

Brooklyn Nets center Brook Lopez continues look good after coming back from foot and ankle surgeries. Lopez had 18 points and 6 rebounds in 25 minutes in Sunday’s 97-95 preseason win over the Sacramento Kings in Shanghai. “He’s been the dominant low-post presence that we’ve missed,” Nets shooting guard Joe Johnson said in a conference call after the team landed in Beijing. “He’s trying to fine-tune himself.
