NEW YORK (AP) -- 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.
Evans, a reserve forward averaging 8.4 rebounds, has the flu.
