The Percy Harvin acquisition is good and all ... but Rex Ryan needed the speed burner like six weeks ago ...
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.
Hollins said that he "has no desire to change anything right now" with regards to starting five. In other words, Bogdanovic stays.
Limited to working out in the pool today, Brook Lopez said "I almost drowned multiple times and swallowed lots of water."
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
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.
Sounds like when everyone's available, Mirza will take Brook's starting spot.
But Hollins said if Garnett is playing he'd move to center and Mirza Teletovic would be starting PF
Lionel Hollins said he'll probably start Mason Plumlee in place of Brook Lopez
Lopez is in extremely good spirits, though. Visibly relieved that it's not another fracture.
Brook Lopez in great spirits, ecstatic that there's no fracture after a very nervous and sleepless plane ride.
Brook Lopez admits what everyone knew: that it was an extremely long flight back from Beijing waiting to find out about his foot.
Brook Lopez is not wearing a boot, moving well.
Brook Lopez isn't even wearing a boot when we walk into the gym for practice.
Billy King downplaying importance of a minutes restriction: "If you don't drive your car, you have less chance of getting into an accident."
Billy King on Bojan Bogdanovic: "Each day, each game he's gotten better, more comfortable."
Billy King said he's much more comfortable w/ roster being able to withstand long absence of Lopez. Noted Mason Plumlee and MIrza Teletovic.
Billy King said Nets are "much more prepared" than a year ago for potential Lopez absence because of development of Teletovic, Plumlee.
Brook Lopez injured his foot and went on 14-hour flight home before x-ray and CT scan. Must've been nerve racking
Billy King on Brook Lopez: "You can't put him in a bubble. It's basketball. He's going to play."
Kevin Garnett did not practice today because of a stomach virus. Neither did Brook Lopez (sprained midfoot).
Kevin Garnett has a stomach virus, the Nets said.
Does Will Bynum have a partially guaranteed deal? Otherwise not sure why everyone is assuming he would be cut.
I believe this is a heart emoji in NYT Sports this morning: http://t.co/3rCDMA1tW8
Another great win by the isles . Congrats islanders fans.
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.
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 ...
You really can't make the Jets up. Amazing.
What Rubin would say, OH NO
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.
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
Last time Brook Lopez suffered a midfoot sprain he missed 14 days. It also might've cost Avery Johnson his job.
The best player in New York right now might be Rick Nash tho maybe it's John Tavares I dunno
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.
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.
Brook Lopez will miss 10 to 14 days due to a right midfoot sprain sustained Wednesday night in Beijing, the Nets just announced.
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.
Nets announce Brook Lopez suffered a mild right mid foot sprain during Wednesday's preseason game. Will be out 10-14 days.
Obviously this is disconcerting since it's the same foot he has twice fractured.
X-Rays and CT Scan showed no fracture, and Dr. Riley Williams says Lopez will be out 10-to-14 days.
Nets announce that Brook Lopez suffered a "mild right midfoot sprain" in the first quarter of yesterday's preseason game.
