Nets' Lopez out with sprained ankle


Posted Dec 13, 2013 7:53 PM

AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) -- Brooklyn Nets center Brook Lopez is out of the lineup for Friday night's game at Detroit with a sprained left ankle.

Lopez is averaging 20.5 points per game, but he landed awkwardly and reinjured his ankle in Thursday's win over the Los Angeles Clippers.

Reggie Evans replaced Lopez in the starting lineup. The Nets are also without Andrei Kirilenko because of back spasms, and Jason Terry, who has a bruised left knee.

The Pistons are missing Will Bynum, who has a left adductor strain.
