(NEW YORK) — Luck is not on Brook Lopez’s side. After just missing 33 games with a broken right foot, the New Jersey Nets’ center will now miss the next three weeks with a right ankle sprain.
Lopez suffered the injury during the third quarter of the Nets game against the Bobcats on Sunday.
The 23-year-old Lopez averages 19.2 points and 3.6 rebounds in the five games he has played this season.
