Updating a previous item, coach Avery Johnson said Friday night that Brook Lopez (foot sprain), who didn't play Friday, will be re-evaluated Sunday.
Lopez still has to go through a full-contact practice before being cleared to play. The Nets seem to be taking the cautious approach with their franchise big man, especially given his injury history. The play of Andray Blatche, who has averaged 17.7 points and 9.3 rebounds over the last three games, might also have something to do with that. Lopez owners will want to see how much Lopez is able to do at practice Saturday, but Blatche remains a great spot start in the meantime.
