Brook Lopez played 22 minutes with six points, seven rebounds and two assists against the Wizards on Friday.
This game was a blowout, so the Nets didn't need to play their vet too much in this game. Somewhat surprisingly, Lopez hasn't been "rested" since Jan. 27 -- he was out on Mar. 10 due to an ankle injury. Lopez is still likely to get rest at some point, but his owners have to be happy he's still playing in late March. Mar 24 - 9:49 PM

Brook Lopez scored 19 points and grabbed six boards in the Nets blowout victory over the Suns on Thursday night.

Brooklyn demolished Phoenix, 126-98. As a result, Lopez played only 25 minutes. He was 7-of-14 from the floor and chipped in one 3-pointer and a block. This is the first time BroLo has scored fewer than 20 points since Mar. 8. He came into Tuesday night averaging 25.5 points and 3.0 treys per game over his last six contests.
Mar 23 - 10:06 PM

Brook Lopez hit 13-of-24 shots, including the game-winning jumper at the buzzer, and three more 3-pointers for 29 points, seven rebounds and one assist in 33 minutes of Tuesday's 98-96 win over the Pistons.

Bro-Lo came through in a meaningless game for the Nets, while the Pistons dropped to 1.0 games behind the Heat for the final playoff spot in the East. Lopez passed Mike Gminski for No. 2 on the Nets' games-played list with 551 and now only trails Buck Williams for the top spot. Williams is also the Nets' career points leader, and Lopez also sits behind him in that category.
Mar 21 - 10:28 PM

Brook Lopez scored 27 points in a 111-104 loss to the Mavs on Sunday, adding seven rebounds and three 3-pointers in 33 minutes.

That game off for an "ankle" injury really got him going. In those games, Lopez averaged 24.8 points, 5.8 boards, 1.8 assists, 0.8 blocks and 3.0 treys on 49.4 percent from the field. His owners will still have to keep an eye out for possible rest, but at least he's playing well right now.
Mar 19 - 3:14 PM

Brook Lopez scored 23 poins during a 98-95 loss to the Celtics on Friday, adding five rebounds, four assists and two 3-pointers in 31 minutes.

He continues to play with a lot of energy and he was fired up on the bench when his team made a late run. There's always a chance of Lopez being shut down, but his competitiveness will make it a tough decision for the front office to hold him out for a long period of time -- that didn't stop the Suns from shutting down Eric Bledsoe. Just keep Lopez going and hope he suits up for as long as possible. By the way, this was the first time all season Lopez played at least 30 minutes in both games of a back-to-back set.
Mar 17 - 11:50 PM

Brook Lopez scored 24 points with six rebounds, three assists, one block and one 3-pointer in 30 minutes against the Knicks on Thursday.

The Nets get the Celtics at home for St. Patrick's Day for the second half of the back-to-back set. Of Lopez's six games off this season, only one of them has been at home. While he has played, he's having a monster month with averages of 20.4 points, 5.7 boards, 1.3 assists, 1.6 blocks, 0.7 steals and 2.1 treys in his previous March games. His owners will want to check back for an update.
Mar 16 - 11:19 PM

Brook Lopez scored 25 points on 9-of-15 shooting in Tuesday's loss to the Thunder.

He hit all four of his free throws and added six rebounds, one assist and three triples in 29 minutes. Lopez's owners will be on shutdown watch for the remainder of the season, but the good news for his fantasy owners is that the Nets have very little depth behind him. Looking ahead, the Nets have a back-to-back set coming up against the Knicks on Thursday and vs. the Celtics on Friday, so a potential maintenance day could be looming.
Mar 14 - 11:42 PM

Despite a winter storm in New York, the Nets have announced that their game vs. the Thunder will be played as scheduled on Tuesday night.

There was some doubt as to whether the NBA would postpone the game, but the storm was less severe than predicted. We are still awaiting word from the NBA regarding the Knicks vs. Pacers game scheduled for Tuesday night at MSG. At this point, it's safe to assume that game will take place as well.
Mar 14 - 12:07 PM

The Nets made a season-high 19 three-pointers on Sunday, led by Brook Lopez's 25 points on 8-of-17 shooting, with a 6-of-9 mark from deep.

Lopez opened 5-of-5 from deep in the first quarter as the Knicks seemingly refused to close out against him. He wound up missing just one game with his recent ankle injury, and he continues to defy expectations of a shut down with Brooklyn playing for nothing as the league's worst team. Just be aware that the Nets play back-to-back games on Thursday and Friday this week.
Mar 12 - 9:27 PM

Brook Lopez (ankle) will play Sunday vs. the Knicks.

Lopez was forced out of Friday's game with a minor ankle issue, but luckily, this is an injury that will only end up costing him one game on the sidelines. With Lopez back in action, Quincy Acy should shift back to the second unit, and guys like Jeremy Lin and Isaiah Whitehead will see a reduction to their respective usage rates.

Brook Lopez (right ankle) is probable against the Knicks on Sunday.

After missing Friday night, Brook looks like he'll be back. It's a Notorious B.I.G. tribute game in Brooklyn for Sunday, so Lopez's fantasy owners will be hoping it's all good baby, baby. Anyway, Lopez is very likely to be managed the rest of the way, so he's not going to fun to own.

Brook Lopez (sprained right ankle) will not play against the Mavs on Friday night.

It's unclear when he suffered this injury, but the sprain diagnosis suggests he suffered the injury on Wednesday night. Considering the Nets are eliminated from the playoffs, they might be extra careful with Brook going forward. With him out, Justin Hamilton should be back in the rotation while Quincy Acy should play against his former team.
Mar 9 - 5:05 PM

Brook Lopez bounced back on Wednesday to score 18 points on 7-of-18 shooting, with two 3-pointers, six rebounds, three assists, one steal and five blocks in 29 minutes.

BroLo was limited to eight points in 32 minutes on Monday but it didn't take him long to atone. His defensive efforts helped limit Atlanta to 46 first-half points -- it may not sound impressive, but it's the lowest total the Nets have allowed in a road game since late December. His owners should count their blessings, since Brooklyn has given zero indication that a shut-down is imminent.
Mar 8 - 10:40 PM

Brook Lopez played 32 minutes on Monday, but hit just 3-of-6 shots for eight points, four rebounds, two assists and a steal in a 122-109 win over the Grizzlies.

Bro-Lo didn't do much against Marc Gasol, but the Nets still somehow didn't get the tanking memo and beat Memphis. Lopez hasn't gotten a day off since he sat on Jan. 27 against the Cavaliers, so you have to think he might be due for a DNP in the near future.
Mar 6 - 11:17 PM

Brook Lopez scored 26 points with five rebounds, one assist, one steal, two blocks and two 3-pointers in a 130-116 loss to the Blazers on Saturday.

He loves to play in Portland. Lopez has scored at least 20 points in all seven games he's played in Portland during his career. In other positive news, he did not rest in this back-to-back set with both games on the road. If you're an optimist, you might think he's going to be good for the next month. If you're a pessimist, you might think this means Brook is getting shut down sooner. Whatever the case, he should put up numbers as long as he's active and at least the Nets are being competitive now.
