Brook Lopez likely will be out 10 to 14 days with what sources are calling a "soft tissue" injury in his surgically repaired right foot. The Brooklyn Nets confirmed Thursday that their All-Star center did not suffer a fracture to the foot, labeling the injury "a mild right midfoot sprain." But if Lopez needs more than 10 days to recover, his status for the season opener at Boston on Oct. 29 could be in doubt. ESPN.com

"Right now, there is no plan to put any restrictions on him, but I think as we do with all players through the preseason -- whether you’re looking at KG or Deron, who’s coming off of ankle injuries -- you build them up. You get them ready for the opening day of the season, but you’re really getting them ready for January, February, March and April. So I look at it like climbing a ladder throughout the season when you have veteran players. But I know Lionel is gonna push all these guys and challenge them physically. And whatever doctors allow Brook and Deron to do, Lionel is going to push them to that point." NetsDaily

"You can't be where you want to be unless you're healthy, and you can't get in shape unless you're healthy. If you are injured all summer, there's no way you can work out. "Deron is healthy, Brook is healthy and they are both able to work out." Newsday
