Joe Johnson has missed the Nets' last two games with an ankle injury and might miss tonight's as well. As shown in the recent losses to the Rockets and Grizzlies, this team needs him on the court badly

It's a brotherly battle tonight in the Big Easy as Brook Lopez and the Nets take on Brook's twin brother Robin and the Hornets. Brooklyn looks to rebound from a pair of back-to-back tough home losses vs the Rockets and Grizzlies over the weekend in which they didn't have the services of Joe Johnson (ankle) for either contest. The absence clearly hurt the Nets' offensive attack as they averaged just 84 points per game in the two that Joe missed.
Joe is doubtful for tonight's game, so it it certain to be another grind-out, hard-fought game for the Nets without one of their better players, even against a lottery-bound team like ...

AROUND THE WEB
The Brooklyn Nets were without Joe Johnson for the second-straight game last night. Johnson has been battling a heel injury and was unable to go last night. He was a late scratch says Howard Beck of the New York Times. Johnson suffered the injury a few days ago and has been diagnosed with pan tar fascists. The condition is one of the more unpredictable as it can limit a player...
Most professional athletes have a hard time doubling as public speakers, but it is a part of their job description. The most overused phrase or filler among athletes who are being interviewed is “you know.” For whatever reason, this is the comfort zone for many people in pro sports when they’re standing in front of a microphone.
Brook Lopez took that to a different level a...
Brook has only played seven seconds in the fourth quarters of three of the Nets' last four games (H/T to Mike Mazzeo of ESPNNewYork.com). That has to end, now
The Nets have played four games since the NBA All-Star break, winning the first two, vs. Milwaukee, and losing the last two, vs. Houston and Memphis.
Interestingly enough, in these four games, Brooklyn...
Finally, we can give D-Will the game-ball in a Nets win
It wasn't easy and it wasn't pretty, but it was a win. Snapping a two-game losing streak--and finally beating a Southwest Division opponent--the Brooklyn Nets held on to beat the New Orleans Hornets this evening in the Big Easy. Brooklyn held a 22-point lead at one point in the second quarter but...
Kris Humphries is still a member of the Brooklyn Nets, even though the team reportedly tried extremely hard to deal him before the trade deadline. The underachieving forward has found a way to make himself noteworthy, though, despite scoring and rebounding averages that are at three-year lows.
Before a late edit, the New Orleans Hornets included a mention of Humphries’ brief marriage...
Deron Williams played really well tonight, but had a brutal turnover late in the fourth quarter that led to the Grizzlies prevailing
No Joe Johnson at all. No Brook Lopez or Gerald Wallace in the fourth quarter. No foul call late in the game when D-Will drove to the hoop for a lay-up with the game tied. Tonight's Nets-Grizzlies game was a bunch of no'...
Let’s look at the Bucks last 8 games, during which they have gone 1-7, and have attempted to completely crush my love of the Bucks and my basketball spirit in general.
L – Denver – 112-104 – Bucks get outscored 33-18 in the 4th.
L – Utah – 100-86 – Bucks never really in it.
L – Detroit – 105-100 – Vinneneuva hits a 3 w 10 secs left. Jennings has a chance to...
