Brook Lopez (back) made his preseason debut on Sunday, scoring 12 points on 5-of-9 shooting with three rebounds and two 3-pointers in 15 minutes.
The Lakers a lot of offense through Lopez on the block, and that's something we're likely to see throughout the season -- he tied a career-high with 2.3 assists per game last year, and should at least flirt with that number in L.A. Head coach Luke Walton also doesn't seem likely to rein in Lopez from downtown, after he sank 1.8 threes per game last year. Oct 8 - 11:51 PM

Date:

Brook Lopez (back) will make his preseason debut on Sunday.

Brandon Ingram (head) is also available, while Tyler Ennis will start in place of Lonzo Ball (sprained ankle).
Oct 8 - 7:24 PM

Brook Lopez (back) has been cleared, but won't play against the Nuggets on Wednesday.

It's just a precaution and he is fully expected to play on Sunday. Lopez went through a full practice on Tuesday, but he has yet to suit up for a game due to back spasms. The good news is that it isn't his foot, so he's still worth a look in the early middle rounds of fantasy drafts.
Oct 4 - 8:32 PM

Brook Lopez (back) was a full participant during Tuesday's practice.

Lopez went through a full-contact, full-court practice on Tuesday, said that he's feeling great and he's hopeful to make his preseason debut on Sunday against the Kings in Las Vegas. That means he'll be missing Wednesday's preseason matchup with the Nuggets, but BroLo is on track to be 100 percent healthy for the start of the season.
Oct 3 - 4:24 PM

Brook Lopez (back) will not play in Monday's preseason game against the Nuggets.

Luke Walton is in no rush to get Lopez on the floor for some meaningless preseason minutes, so they'll continue to take a cautious approach until Lopez can completely put these back issues behind him. It's worth noting that BroLo was able to get through a full-court, 5-on-5 practice on Sunday, so he is making progress in his recovery.
Oct 1 - 4:21 PM

Brook Lopez (back) will not play against the Wolves on Saturday.

The good news is he was taking on contact at practice today, so not playing in a preseason game isn't a big concern. Preseason DFS players will want to take a look at guys like Ivica Zubac, Larry Nance and Julius Randle.
Sep 29 - 5:02 PM

Coach Luke Walton said Brook Lopez (back spasms) likely won't play in Saturday's preseason opener.

He was expected to have restrictions at camp and was limited on Tuesday. Lopez has dealt with back spasms before, but his last noteworthy bout with that ailment came back in November of 2015. Lopez has three weeks to get right for the season, but he does get a slight downgrade with this injury. He's still a high-floor big to take in the early middle rounds.
Sep 27 - 4:04 PM

Brook Lopez (back) was limited to shooting jumpers during Tuesday's practice.

Lopez has recently been dealing with some back spasms, but he should be able to get that under control with some rest, and he still has a good amount of time before the regular season begins. BroLo doesn't have a history with back issues, so hopefully, this won't be something that lingers into the regular season. He should have a nice year as one of the leading scorers in Los Angeles, so feel free to look his way in the 40-50 range on draft day.
Sep 26 - 3:53 PM

Luke Walton said that Brook Lopez (back) may be limited at the start of training camp.

Lopez has been experiencing some back spasms over the past few days but maintains that it's "nothing serious at all," and that he's just trying to be cautious early on so it doesn't turn into a lingering issue. Lopez missed a handful of games back in 2014 due to a lower back strain, but he hasn't dealt with any back issues over the past three seasons, so we wouldn't read much into this.
Sep 25 - 4:50 PM

Brook Lopez has reportedly been traded to the Lakers in exchange for D'Angelo Russell and Timofey Mozgov.

Wow. This is the first major deal orchestrated by Lakers' new GM Rob Pelinka, and it's a move that will help open cap space in 2018 to try and bring on another star player. If the Lakers aren't able to swing a deal for Paul George this summer, Lopez will be the clear-cut No. 1 option on offense there, and his value should improve somewhat as he won't be playing for a team that is constantly resting their guys. Ivica Zubac will be confined to limited minutes behind Lopez, so his value takes a hit with BroLo's arrival, and LA sending away Russell could hint that they are leaning towards taking Lonzo Ball No. 2 overall.

Brook Lopez said he's excited about the Nets future and is "all in."

Lopez has been rumored in trade talks constantly over the last couple of years, and his name will likely be bandied about again this offseason. However, Lopez says he's encouraged by the direction of the franchise and is committed to his teammates. "Moving forward, I’m just all in, trying to do all I can to help my team be successful," said Lopez. "We’ve got a great group of guys who really have that team-first attitude and we really believe that we can do something special as long as we put the effort out and we put the work in."
May 30 - 9:29 AM

Nets coach Kenny Atkinson had nothing but praise for Brook Lopez at his final press conference of the season on Monday.

Atkinson called Lopez "one of the elite centers in the league" and that he was proud of the way he conditioned and adapted his game to Brooklyn's new system. Lopez is entering the final year of his contract and will surely be the subject of numerous trade rumors all the way up to the deadline in February of 2018, but the Nets haven't given any indication that they want to move on from their franchise center. He averaged 20.5 points, 5.4 boards, 1.8 triples and 1.7 blocks, and his ADP would likely go up if the Nets look like they will be more competitive next season.
Apr 17 - 12:11 PM

Brook Lopez (rest), Jeremy Lin (rest) and Trevor Booker (rest) have been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Bulls.

It's surprising that it took this long for the Nets to shut everyone down, but it looks like Brooklyn will enter Wednesday's regular-season finale with just nine available players. Justin Hamilton should see heavy minutes with Lopez and Booker unavailable, and the point guard minutes will be split up between Isaiah Whitehead and Spencer Dinwiddie. Lopez made it through 75 games this season, and he'll end his year with averages of 20.5 points, 1.8 triples, 5.4 boards and 1.7 blocks per contest.

Brook Lopez scored 25 points on 10-of-21 shooting in a loss to Boston on Monday.

Lopez added seven rebounds, two assists, one block and one triple, but he also made a bit of history tonight -- he passed Buck Williams and became the all-time leading scorer in Nets history with 10,444 total points. With just six missed games on the season and only one to go, Lopez has been a joy to own this season and avoiding a shut-down was huge for his value.

Brook Lopez struggled on Thursday with 10 points, five rebounds and two assists in 31 minutes of action vs. Orlando.

BroLo was 1-of-6 from the field with four turnovers at halftime, and he didn't have a single steal or block tonight. The nine-year veteran has been far better than owners could have expected on draft day, missing just six games this season while avoiding a shut-down in the most critical stage of most fantasy leagues.
