EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) -- Nets center Brook Lopez has a sprained right ankle and will miss three weeks.
Lopez was injured in the third quarter of the Nets' 104-101 win over Charlotte on Sunday. He will have his foot placed in a walking boot as a precautionary measure.
The oft-injured Lopez has played in just five games this season, averaging 19.2 points, 3.6 rebounds and 27.2 minutes. He missed the first 33 games of the season with a fractured fifth metatarsal in his right foot.
