Hollins: Lopez will be ready for opener

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- In his opinion, Brooklyn Nets coach Lionel Hollins believes that center Brook Lopez will be ready for the team’s regular-season opener on Wednesday night in Boston. On Oct. 16, the Nets announced that Lopez would miss 10-to-14 days with a mild right midfoot sprain. Friday marks Day 8 of the rehab process. “He was on the [anti-gravity] treadmill, but he’s doing fine,” Hollins said Friday. “I think he’ll be ready by opening day, but that’s my opinion to talking to with him, but the doctors [still have to clear him].

Nets cut Reed

The Nets began cutting down their roster by releasing Willie Reed. Reed, a 6-10 power forward/center, was signed in September to provide an extra big body in camp. He averaged 4.0 points and 4.0 rebounds in two preseason games. The Nets will need some depth in the front court to protect them in case of injuries. They currently have Brook Lopez, Kevin Garnett, Mason Plumlee, Mirza Teletovic, Cory Jefferson and Jerome Jordan at power forward and center.

Nets to rest stars; bench guys to start

The Nets have had enough of the preseason. The long trip to China, the three games and four nights, the jet lag, it is time for the games to start counting. With just one more game to play before October 29, the Nets have opted to rest a majority of their starters and give the bench players one more hard look before the roster is locked in for the regular season. Per the Nets PR department, the Nets are starting Marquis Teague, Sergey Karasev, Alan Anderson, Cory Jefferson, and Mason Plumlee in the team's preseason finale. Brook Lopez is out nursing his injured foot, Markel Brown and Kevin...

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...
