Juan Pablo Vaulet scores 12 points in return from ankle surgery

In his first game back from ankle surgery performed in July, Juan Pablo Vaulet played 14 minutes Friday night, scoring 12 points on 5-of-12 shooting as his team, Bahia Basket, lost by 31 in the Argentine national league, the LNB. The Nets had Dr. Martin O'Malley, whose patients have included Brook Lopez and Kevin Durant, surgically repair Vaulet's right ankle back in July, less than a month after the NBA Draft when the Nets traded two second round picks and $880,000 to the Hornets for the 19-year-old's rights. It was his second ankle surgery in a little more than two years, having fractured...

Raskin: It ain't that bad here

Alex Raskin of the Wall Street Journal is having none of this negativity about the Nets. He wants you to know that despite the 2-10 record, the frustrating late game flubs, the lack of local TV ... or draft picks, there is some hope on the horizon. To quote Joe Johnson, "it ain't bad here." Raskin picks five bright spots... --Brook Lopez and Thaddeus Young: the two 27-year-olds are now, wait for it, "Lopez and Young rank second among NBA post duos in scoring, behind only the Los Angeles Clippers’ Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan (36.7 ppg), according to Stats, LLC."  And of course,...

Make that TWO! Young's late-game heroics put Nets over Hawks, 90-88

BROOKLYN -- Make that TWO wins for the Nets this season! We like to think around here that more is better than less, especially with no draft picks... Turning the corner? Too early for that. But the Nets played another damn good game against a playoff team. They defeated the Atlanta Hawks, 90-88, behind the late-game heroics from Thaddeus Young. They did it in front of a Barclay's record-low attendance of 12,241. It was a close game throughout. The Hawks led by 10 at one point, but the Nets didn't give up - a reoccurring theme with this team, just like Brook Lopez told reporters on...

Why Brook Lopez is confident 1-9 Nets are nowhere near quitting

It’s hard to find a more positive 1-9 team than the Nets. But after being non-competitive through most of their first seven games, they showed life on a road trip during which they easily could have won all three contests. After suffering through last season when some players clearly quit, Brook Lopez said this team...

Brook Lopez remains optimistic despite rocky start

Brook Lopez has finished below .500 in five of the seven seasons he's been in the league. He knows what it's like to lose. Nonetheless, he's one of the very few that know what 12-70 feels like. He's the only Net that remains from the 12-70 squad, therefore he knows bad times when he sees them. The Nets are 1-9 at the moment, but don't tell Lopez that. The big fella seems to be in optimistic spirits despite the rocky start. Here's what he told Andy Vasquez Monday at the team's practice facility: "We haven't had guys quitting," Lopez said. "It definitely doesn't feel like other previous...

No injury concerns for Brook Lopez, just rest

The Brooklyn Nets returned from the west coast with a 1-9 record, and Brook Lopez did not practice on Monday. Uh-oh, right? Well, not necessarily. The team announced that Lopez did not practice on Monday because of rest and not because there were any concerns about injuries, in particular to his oft-injured foot. From the always thorough Andy Vasquez: "I feel good," Lopez said this afternoon. "I’m ready to go. I’m just happy to be able to be out there and contribute." Lopez didn’t play in the fourth quarter of a Nov. 7 loss to the Bucks because of a sore right foot. Any problem with...

Practice report: Brook Lopez rests

There are apparently no lingering concerns after a scare involving Brook Lopez’s surgically repaired foot. All you need to do is look at his playing time to see that. The Nets just returned from a three-game, four day road trip …

Nets blow chance to beat undefeated Warriors, fall in OT

OAKLAND, Calif. — The Warriors gave the Nets every chance to become the first team to beat them this season. The Nets gave them all back. Despite leading the undefeated Warriors for virtually the entire game and having three separate chances to close the game out — including a point-blank look from Brook Lopez at...

Brook Lopez sits down to talk Star Wars with...StarWars.com!

It's a known fact that Brook Lope is a HUGE Star Wars fan. Like, maybe the biggest -- and not just in stature. In fact, last season Lopez made a plea to become a wookie in the upcoming Star Wars movie. Yeah, see, he's really into it. And that's why it makes perfect sense that he would sit down for an interview with StarWars.com, a website that I assumed existed but, to be honest, really never thought of its existence. The latest movie in the franchise comes out on December 18, 2015, Lopez naturally has tickets to the midnight showing. The team, however, will be in Indiana where later that...

Brook Lopez thrilled ‘scary’ foot issue didn’t cost him

When Brook Lopez felt a twinge in his right foot Saturday night in Milwaukee, he also felt a knot in his stomach. “It was scary,” Lopez said. “We wanted to make sure it was nothing. I wanted to go back in, I wanted to keep playing, but [Nets athletic trainer Tim Walsh] pulled me.” It...

Nets can exhale as Brook Lopez avoids dreaded foot injury

The Nets got their first win of the season Sunday. No, it didn’t come on the court or count in the standings because the team was off following losses at home to the Lakers on Friday and in Milwaukee on Saturday to drop its record to 0-7. Instead, it was that no further tests were...

Woj: Brook Lopez unlikely to miss a game due to foot injury

It turns out that it was only a sore foot.  Adrian Wojnarowski quotes a "league source" saying that Brook Lopez is unlikely to miss a game after the Nets completed tests on his sore right foot. Lopez left Saturday night's game in Milwaukee complaining of a sore right foot. There was obvious concern since Lopez's right foot is the one that's been the subject of three surgeries, the most recent in January 2014 a complete reconstruction. Lopez has played in 66 straight games since that surgery. With no more tests needed for...

Brett Yormark again suggests Brooklyn Nets could play in Russia next season

In Moscow at the end of last month to discuss "strategic planning," Brett Yormark told a Russian sports site the same thing he told a London sports seminar weeks before: the Nets may very well play next year in Moscow. "We want to play around the world," he told Peter Pavlov of SovSport.ru. "Last year, before the season we played in China. Before I was in London. We discussed the question - how to bring the Nets in Russia again. Moreover, there is now an arena worthy to invite to an NBA team." Yormark was apparently referring to VTB Arena, part of a giant sports park being developed in...

Time for a plan ... and frank discussion

It's difficult right now to look at things with an unbiased eye, but let's try. The Nets are 0-7 and losing by an average of 14 points game, once again losing a lead Saturday, this time in Milwaukee. Other than Brook Lopez who hopefully is healthy; Thaddeus Young and Rondae Hollis-Jefferson (when he plays), they look pedestrian, and we are being kind. It IS early and a lot of things CAN happen, but whatever hopes the team had for a playoff spot this season seem farther and farther-fetched with every game. The prospect of sending a high lottery pick to a division rival looms large. So does...
