Nets center Brook Lopez missed a sixth straight game because of a sprained right foot, sitting out Tuesday night against the New York Knicks.
The Nets hoped Lopez would be able to return, listing him Monday as a game-time decision, but coach Avery Johnson said everyone involved decided earlier Tuesday that Lopez was not ready.
Lopez won't travel to Toronto for the Nets' game Wednesday, and Johnson says he will get more treatment and work out Thursday before it's determined if Lopez can play Friday against Detroit.
Andray Blatche started again for Lopez, who leads the Nets with 18.5 points per game.

J.R. Smith absolutely blew up Gerald Wallace today during the Knicks 100-97 comeback win over the Brooklyn Nets. Gerald came down the lane for a rebound and J.R. was having none of it, so he decided to stick it to Wallace for no good reason. The result was Wallace on the ground in a great deal of pain.

NBA referee Courtney Kirkland attempted to block a free throw attempt from Kris Humphries in the Nets-Raptors game Wednesday night in Toronto.
Why? Maybe because it's hilarious? Or maybe Kirkland's just a big Kim Kardashian supporter?
