Nets Center Brook Lopez Out 10-14 Days with Foot Injury

Nets Center Brook Lopez Out 10-14 Days with Foot Injury

NBA via Brooklyn Nets(NEW YORK) -- Brooklyn Nets fans are holding their breath as center Brook Lopez will miss the next 10-14 days to deal with a "soft tissue" injury in his surgically repaired right foot.

The team will give him some time off to recover, but his status for the start of the season is in question now.

"X-ray and CT scan studies done Thursday in New York reveal no fractures or bone injuries," Nets medical director Dr. Riley Williams II said in a statement. "Brook has been diagnosed with a mild midfoot sprain and is likely to be out for approximately 10-14 days."

Lopez' health will go a long way in determining just how good the Nets can be this season.

When healthy, Lopez is one of the more offensively skilled centers in the NBA. In his six-year career, the 26-year-old Lopez is averaging 18.0 points and 7.3 rebounds per game.

He's battled injuries in recent years though. He played in just 17 games last season and played in just five games three seasons ago. He's missed 134 games over the last three seasons.

Nets Guard Deron Williams to Undergo Surgery on Both Ankles

Nets Guard Deron Williams to Undergo Surgery on Both Ankles

NBA via Brooklyn Nets(NEW YORK) -- Brooklyn Nets point guard Deron Williams will undergo surgery on both ankles next week, the team announced Thursday.

"He will have a bone chip removed from his right ankle, and the left ankle will have an arthroscopic cleanout with removal of spurs from both the front and back of the ankle," team foot and ankle specialist Dr. Martin O'Malley, who will perform the surgery, said in a statement issued by the team.

For the past two seasons, Williams has been plagued by persistent injuries in both of his ankles. He has received multiple cortisone shots and platelet-rich-plasma injections to help ease the pain, but the problem has not gone away.

Williams averaged just 14.3 points and 6.1 assists in 64 games during the regular season for the Nets, the lowest totals since his rookie year. In 12 playoff games, he averaged 14.5 points and 5.8 assists.  The Nets were eliminated by the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference semifinals.

The procedures are scheduled for next Tuesday. The 29-year-old Williams still has three years and $63.1 million remaining on his deal with the Nets.
