Brook Lopez and Reggie Evans will miss Brooklyn's game against Oklahoma City on Tuesday night, leaving the Nets without their leading scorer and top rebounder.
Lopez will miss a third straight game with a sprained right foot. The Nets have said the injury to their starting center is unrelated to the broken foot that helped limit him to just five games last season.
Lopez, who was hurt last Wednesday in Boston, is averaging 18.5 points.

The sprained foot is not expected...
On paper, it all looks so easy.
First, you start with one of the league's elite point guards, then trade for an All-Star shooting guard to round out the backcourt and sign an athletic former All-Star at small forward to divert some attention away from your two most dangerous weapons.

Unfortunately, NBA doesn't allow you to embed videos...

The jerseys: “All-black everything! And the lettering—the typography reminds you of the oldsubway. It’s classic.”
The court: “It’s herringbone, which is crazy. In fact, the NBA fought me on it. They said if it gets shot on TV, the lines will...
A Nets loss to the Heat and a Knicks win against Phoenix plummeted the Brooklyn Nets back to second in the Atlantic division. Not much of a fall but the Nets have a string of very winnable games coming up, which makes that top spot attainable again.
Brook Lopez shouldn’t be out for an extended time and may be a game time decision against the Oklahoma City Thunder tomorrow night...
Brooklyn Nets guard Gerald Wallace became the second NBA player fined for flopping Wednesday when he was docked $5,000 by the league. Wallace was fined for trying to draw a foul from LeBron James during a game last Saturday against the Miami Heat. Wallace acted like was severely hit after he was bumped by James' right arm. Wallace previously was warned for flopping on a play...
