And you can find all five parts of my NBA Season Preview that I've done so far right here: nypost.com/tag/nba-full-c…

Tim Bontemps

While Lopez is on the sidelines, this is what the Nets will do with their lineup and offense: nyp.st/1FffJQu

Tim Bontemps

Brook Lopez spent a long flight home fearing the worst before receiving news that was as good as possible: nyp.st/1CxKImw

Andrew Keh

Never seen someone so happy to have a right midfoot sprain (also never seen someone with a right midfoot sprain) nytimes.com/2014/10/18/spo…

Tim Bontemps

Brook Lopez spent the whole flight home from China fearing the worst. Instead, he caught a lucky break: nyp.st/1CxKImw

Mike Mazzeo

Just went to two @VerizonWireless stores and told that phone service towers are down in NYC. Anyone else having trouble?

Mike Mazzeo

The Percy Harvin acquisition is good and all ... but Rex Ryan needed the speed burner like six weeks ago ...

Tim Bontemps

Like I said the other day, unless Kobe performs some kind of never-before-seen miracle, the Lakers will be horrible: nypost.com/2014/10/14/kob…

Tim Bontemps

Brook Lopez spent 15 hours on a plane fearing the worst. Instead, he caught a break: nyp.st/1CxKImw

Tim Bontemps

I'll just keep on saying it: the Lakers are headed for an epic disaster this season. It's going to be a season-long dumpster fire.

Mike Mazzeo

Notes: With Lopez out, Teletovic steps in es.pn/1CxKwnl #Nets

Rod Boone

Brook Lopez happy foot injury just a sprain nwsdy.li/1qKhqeN #Nets

Here's today's entry in my NBA Season Preview, which looks at five players who could change teams in the next year: nyp.st/1yKicAH

Mike Mazzeo

Updated news story: #Nets' Lopez likely out 10-14 days due to foot es.pn/1rDf5Bu via @ESPNNewYork

Stefan Bondy

Gareth Barry nearly joined NYCFC but became convinced that such a move would be like retiring. Ouch. telegraph.co.uk/sport/football…

Fred Kerber

#Knicks JR Smith talked to #Giants Victor Cruz Thurs: "He’s in great spirits which is pretty much all you can do at this point"

Tim Bontemps

Hollins said that he "has no desire to change anything right now" with regards to starting five. In other words, Bogdanovic stays.

Stefan Bondy

I can essentially use my story from two years ago for today. Just sub Avery quotes for Billy and Lionel nydailynews.com/blogs/nets/wor…

Fred Kerber

#Knicks JR. Smith on why DRodman compared him to himself: "Reputation, nightlife, females"

Stefan Bondy

Limited to working out in the pool today, Brook Lopez said "I almost drowned multiple times and swallowed lots of water."

Fred Kerber

#Knicks say Travis Outlaw didnt practice w/ mild Achilles strain Andrea Bargnani still "limited" No word if Stoudemire was hung over w bath

Stefan Bondy

Lionel Hollins said idea of 44-minute game was broached by Rick Carlisle and it's about TV wanting to fit game into it's allotted time slot

Fred Kerber

And here's what you can do with all that wine that comes with a screw on top and no cork, as per Amar'e Stoudemire bit.ly/1CwT6CI

Rod Boone

Brook is in pretty good spirits. Here he is yacking with @Sarah Kustok after practice: #Nets instagram.com/p/uQvRvhoWdg/

Fred Kerber

#Knicks Iman Shumpert smiling more, tuning out distractions bit.ly/1waWe6u

Tim Bontemps

I meant when everyone was available while Brook is out. Thanks for stopping by, #WellActually Twitter.

Rod Boone

Lionel Hollins said he didn't even know Brook was injured until yesterday. Early plan is to have Mirza play power forward, KG at center.

Mike Mazzeo

From Hollins: If Brook is out KG/Mirza would be the frontcourt #Nets

Tim Bontemps

Sounds like when everyone's available, Mirza will take Brook's starting spot.

Stefan Bondy

But Hollins said if Garnett is playing he'd move to center and Mirza Teletovic would be starting PF

Stefan Bondy

Lionel Hollins said he'll probably start Mason Plumlee in place of Brook Lopez

Tim Bontemps

Lopez is in extremely good spirits, though. Visibly relieved that it's not another fracture.

Stefan Bondy

Brook Lopez in great spirits, ecstatic that there's no fracture after a very nervous and sleepless plane ride.

Mike Mazzeo

General sense from Brook Lopez was relief his foot wasn't broken, was nervous. #Nets

Tim Bontemps

Brook Lopez admits what everyone knew: that it was an extremely long flight back from Beijing waiting to find out about his foot.

Lenn Robbins

Brook Lopez: I was nervous thinking about it on the flight. But it was good news #nets

Lenn Robbins

Lopez says he'd like to play in the opener but knows this is not a long term thing. Says there's been no flags during his recovery #nets

Lenn Robbins

Lopez says it was a long flight home When he got the results of the test and it was negative he and trainer Tim Walsh hugged #nets

Lenn Robbins

Lopez says he's happy and thankful it's not the same thing as the broken bone suffered last season. #nets

Stefan Bondy

Brook Lopez is not wearing a boot, moving well.

Tim Bontemps

Brook Lopez isn't even wearing a boot when we walk into the gym for practice.

Lenn Robbins

#Nets center Brook Lopez is not wearing a protective boot and has taken some shots in the lane. The 10-14 day projected return looks solid.

Fred Kerber

So in light of Brook Lopez sprain, can #Nets sign his good buddy Chewbacca to a 10-day? The guy is like 8-foot-10

Tim Bontemps

Billy King downplaying importance of a minutes restriction: "If you don't drive your car, you have less chance of getting into an accident."

Tim Bontemps

Billy King on Bojan Bogdanovic: "Each day, each game he's gotten better, more comfortable."

Stefan Bondy

Billy King said he's much more comfortable w/ roster being able to withstand long absence of Lopez. Noted Mason Plumlee and MIrza Teletovic.

Mike Mazzeo

If Lopez is hurt, King is comfortable with the depth of Garnett moving to C and still having developing Plumlee and Teletovic as well #Nets

Mike Mazzeo

King also wasn't concerned about the possibility of Lopez missing the Oct. 29 opener because there's still 80, 81 games left #Nets

Tim Bontemps

Billy King said Nets are "much more prepared" than a year ago for potential Lopez absence because of development of Teletovic, Plumlee.

Stefan Bondy

Brook Lopez injured his foot and went on 14-hour flight home before x-ray and CT scan. Must've been nerve racking

Tim Bontemps

Billy King on Brook Lopez: "You can't put him in a bubble. It's basketball. He's going to play."

Stefan Bondy

Kevin Garnett did not practice today because of a stomach virus. Neither did Brook Lopez (sprained midfoot).

Rod Boone

Along with Brook Lopez, #Nets say Kevin Garnett (stomach virus) did not practice today.

Mike Mazzeo

Kevin Garnett has a stomach virus and did not practice today #Nets

Andrew Keh

Kevin Garnett has a stomach virus, the Nets said.

Lenn Robbins

#nets GM Billy King says there is no reason to have Lopez back for the Oct 29 opener in Boston. Still 81 or 80 games to go

Lenn Robbins

#nets GM Billy King says he's optimistic about Brook Lopez's mild mid foot sprain. King says the Nets will not restrict his minutes

Mike Mazzeo

The play Brook hurt himself on was the one I posted to Vine. King expressed that a minutes restriction would not have prevented it #Nets

Rod Boone

Billy King isn't overly worried about Brook Lopez's latest foot injury. Why? "Because it's not broken," King said. #Nets

Mike Mazzeo

Billy King seemed unconcerned about Brook Lopez's sprain #Nets

Stefan Bondy

Wifi's out. TV doesn't work. Weak cell service. Only apple juice + diet coke in fridge. At least there's new coffee machine. #NetsMediaRoom

Tom Lorenzo

Here is the broken seat. #turntup http://t.co/9bDIwgs3vp

Tim Bontemps

Does Will Bynum have a partially guaranteed deal? Otherwise not sure why everyone is assuming he would be cut.

Tom Lorenzo

My flight is delayed 60-90 minutes because the pilot in the previous flight "broke two springs" in the captain's seat. #TurntUp

Tim Bontemps

Brook Lopez's right foot is hurt once again: nyp.st/1zeqUs2

Stefan Bondy

Brook Lopez suffers setback to right foot in just third game back nydailynews.com/sports/basketb…

Andrew Keh

I believe this is a heart emoji in NYT Sports this morning: http://t.co/3rCDMA1tW8

Brett Yormack

Another great win by the isles . Congrats islanders fans.

Mike Mazzeo

FWIW, Lopez suffered a mild right foot sprain Nov. 28, 2012 and returned Dec. 14, 2012 #Nets

Mike Mazzeo

Lopez got hurt against the Knicks in 2011, played through it that night. Same for Philly. Same for Sac. Wonder if it made his foot worse.

Mike Mazzeo

Believe this is Brook Lopez's midfoot sprain injury here #Nets vine.co/v/OqEB0PrIiaQ

Mike Mazzeo

Lopez then gets a lob pass thrown his way on the ensuing offensive possession and appears to yelp a little bit as he jumps #Nets

Mike Mazzeo

I believe Lopez gets hurt with 33.6 seconds left in the first quarter when Collison steps on his foot and Brook falls to the ground #Nets

Rod Boone

Brook Lopez sprains right foot nwsdy.li/1qG4mXK #Nets

Mike Mazzeo

Creative Devils fans keep You (Stink) tradition alive youtube.com/watch?list=UU7…

Tim Bontemps

Here's my newser on Brook Lopez potentially missing the start of the season with a midfoot sprain: nyp.st/1zeqUs2

Mike Mazzeo

I'm impressed Geno even got the Jets in position for that basically impossible FG attempt. Good showing by Gang Green, but 1-6 now ...

Tim Bontemps

You really can't make the Jets up. Amazing.

Lenn Robbins

#Nets center Brook Lopez out 10-14 w a mild right mid foot sprain..X-rays and CT scan were negative for any fracture.

Mike Mazzeo

What Rubin would say, OH NO

Tim Bontemps

One thing to consider: when Brook had same injury two years ago, missed two weeks & had no recurrence. They'll be hoping for same this time.

Tim Bontemps

Nets saying Lopez's foot injury is minor, and certainly every reason to think that. But Brook's foot will always be a concern moving forward

Stefan Bondy

Last time Brook Lopez suffered a midfoot sprain he missed 14 days. It also might've cost Avery Johnson his job.

Mike Mazzeo

The best player in New York right now might be Rick Nash tho maybe it's John Tavares I dunno

Stefan Bondy

Good news is Lopez suffered same injury early in the 2012-13 season. He went on to become All-Star. Bad news is he broke foot year later.

Sarah Kustok

#Nets say Brook Lopez sustained a mild right midfoot sprain during the Oct. 15 preseason game.. likely out 10-14 days #NBA

Rod Boone

In release, #Nets say injury occurred after Brook's right foot was stepped on. X-rays and a CT scan done today revealed no fractures.

Tim Bontemps

A timeframe of 10-14 days would make it a question as to whether or not Lopez would be available for the opener in Boston.

Andrew Keh

Brook Lopez will miss 10 to 14 days due to a right midfoot sprain sustained Wednesday night in Beijing, the Nets just announced.

Tim Bontemps

That said, there is nothing mild about any injury to Lopez's right foot -- the same foot he's injured each of the last three seasons.

Tim Bontemps

Nets announce Brook Lopez suffered a mild right mid foot sprain during Wednesday's preseason game. Will be out 10-14 days.

Stefan Bondy

Obviously this is disconcerting since it's the same foot he has twice fractured.

Rod Boone

#Nets announce Brook Lopez suffered "mild right midfoot sprain" in the first quarter of yesterday's preseason game, will miss 10-14 days.

Mike Mazzeo

#Nets are calling it a mild right midfoot sprain, suffered in the first quarter of Wednesday's game in China

Stefan Bondy

X-Rays and CT Scan showed no fracture, and Dr. Riley Williams says Lopez will be out 10-to-14 days.

Stefan Bondy

Nets announce that Brook Lopez suffered a "mild right midfoot sprain" in the first quarter of yesterday's preseason game.

Mike Mazzeo

#Nets are going to have to be careful with Brook Lopez this season. It's only been three preseason games of not even 30 minutes.
