New Jersey Nets’ Brook Lopez To Miss Three Weeks With Injury
Brook Lopez, center for the New Jersey Nets, will miss approximately three weeks with a sprained right ankle he suffered Sunday night against the Charlotte Bobcats.
Lopez rolled his ankle badly in the third quarter against the Bobcats and was unable to return. X-rays after the game revealed a sprained ankle. He will have to use a walking boot for the next few weeks as it will take time for the swelling to go down.
In 15 minutes against Charlotte, Lopez recorded six points, three rebounds and one assist as the Nets went on to win the road game 104-101.
The injury could not have come at a worse time for Lopez as he had just returned to the lineup after missing New Jersey’s last 33 games with a broken right foot.
In 5 games this season, Lopez is averaging 19.2 points, 3.6 rebounds, and 1.2 assists per game while shooting 49.4 percent from the field in 27.2 minutes.
