Nets Prep for Flight to New Orleans


EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J.—With an afternoon flight to New Orleans on the schedule, the Nets snuck in a practice to review Sunday's game against the Grizzlies. Deron Williams, who suffered a calf contusion on a late-game drive, said he feels good and is okay to go. Joe Johnson (sore left heel) said he's further encouraged after sitting out a second straight game, and that he'll test the injury tomorrow at shootaround.

Center Brook Lopez, who will matchup against twin brother Robin (now with the Hornets after four seasons in Phoenix) is excited for the game.

"It’s always fun. It’ll definitely be fun tomorrow going up against their frontcourt with him, Anthony Davis, (former Net Ryan Anderson). They have a good front court, very active."
