Ugggghhhhh RT @YourManDevine: Broken leg, says Rachel Nichols on TNT. Jesus, man.

Devin Kharpertian

Oh no, Julius Randle.

Tim Bontemps

Man, this is terrible. Was really looking forward to watching Randle get a chance to play a lot this season.

Tim Bontemps

If Julius Randle is seriously hurt ... man, I'll feel bad for Lakers fans this season.

BTW, that team that averaged 6.4 blocks? The Pelicans. Only one other team (Thunder, 6.1) averaged more than six per game.

Anthony Davis has 7 blocks on opening night through 3 quarters. No team averaged more than 6.4 blocks per game last season.

Devin Kharpertian

Hey. HEY YOU. It's a fresh new season, and The Brooklyn Game has a fresh new look. CHECK IT OUT thebrooklyngame.com

Stefan Bondy

Seems very doubtful Brook Lopez will play tomorrow. He was limited to non-contact drills today.

Stefan Bondy

How does Lionel Hollins differentiate center from pf? "They are the same position. One stands on the left block, the other on the right."

Rod Boone

Hey @Ronnie2K, me thinks @TheJoeJohnson7 wants to chat with you about NBA2K15. I believe he has a few tweaks he wants to recommend.

Mike Mazzeo

. @Larry Coon writes in his latest Insider piece that the #Nets are the #NBA's most overpaid team ($42,321,618 more than expected salary)

Devin Kharpertian

6/10 of Larry Coon’s overpaid-by-NBARank list either play or played for the Nets or Knicks. insider.espn.go.com/nba/story/_/id…

Rod Boone

Lionel Hollins unsure if Brook will be available tomorrow. Said if he doesn't play then Mason would slide in alongside KG. #Nets

Stefan Bondy

Mason Plumlee will start if Brook Lopez is not playing tomorrow, Lionel Hollins says.

Mike Mazzeo

If Lopez can't play Plumlee will likely start Hollins said #Nets

Tim Bontemps

Lionel Hollins says if Brook Lopez can't go, Mason Plumlee will start next to Kevin Garnett.

Tim Bontemps

Guess here is that Brook Lopez doesn't play tomorrow and Rajon Rondo does, but we'll see what happens.

Tim Bontemps

Nets say Lopez participated in the "non-contact portions" of today's practice.

Devin Kharpertian

Brook Lopez went non-contact again today. Today was a full practice, unlike yesterday’s.

Rod Boone

Brook Lopez only participated in the non-contact portions of practice again today.

Mike Mazzeo

Brook Lopez again participated in the non-contact portion of practice today #Nets announce

Brook Lopez, Andrei Kirilenko, Kevin Garnett and Deron Williams combined to miss 148 games last season #Nets

Important distinction: the Blazers didn’t turn BlazersEdge down. BE saw an unethical credentialing practice and refused to participate.

Devin Kharpertian

Re: BlazersEdge, I am thankful that the Nets PR department never second-tiered our access at NAS/TBG. Only steps forward.

This was my point. He was never good. It was a crazy thing to say at the time.

Keep getting them picks, Sixers. Keep getting them picks.
