Beyond The Buzzer:
Brooklyn Nets coach Avery Johnson admitted Sunday that center Brook Lopez is recovering slower from a mild right foot sprain than the team initially expected.
Lopez missed his fifth straight game on Sunday night against the Milwaukee Bucks. He is still not ready to practice despite suffering the injury on Nov. 28.
“I think it’s approaching that point now, because obviously I come to these press conferences and I’m basically giving you the same answer. And it’s not like I’m telling you something that’s not the truth, but it’s a little bit slower than what we thought,” Johnson said. “We’ll see if we catch some good fortune here soon where he can heal enough to a point where he can practice and play in the game.”
