Brook Lopez led the Nets with 26 points, eight rebounds, two assists, two steals and two blocks on Wednesday, but it wasn't enough to steal a win in Oklahoma City.
This line almost doesn't merit comment, as Lopez has been rock-solid all season long. In addition to his 20.1 points, 8.3 boards and 2.1 blocks per game, only Marc Gasol and Roy Hibbert have had a more positive impact on fantasy owners' FT percentage category. Nov 26 - 1:04 AM

Brook Lopez posted 23 points (8-of-19 FGs, 7-of-8 FTs) with five rebounds, three assists, two blocks and only one turnover vs. the Hornets on Wednesday.

The Nets fell on the road and have yet to win consecutive games this season. Lopez recently dealt with minor foot and back injuries but they didn't cost him any time, and his 34.5 minutes per game are the most he's averaged since 2010-11. So far, the draft-day gamble on Lopez is paying out nicely.
Nov 18 - 10:10 PM

Brook Lopez scored a game-high 24 points during a 90-88 win over the Hawks on Tuesday, adding 10 rebounds, one assist, one steal and three blocks in 35 minutes.

Nobody questioned Lopez's ability to produce and it's really all about his foot injury. If he can stay on the court, Lopez is a good bet to be a top-25 player. That said, if you own him, it's not a bad idea to try and unload him after he posts four or five good games in a row.
Nov 17 - 11:55 PM

Brook Lopez will play on Tuesday vs. the Hawks.

He was rested during Monday's practice after dealing with foot and back injuries last week, but his status was never really in doubt. Get him in your lineup.
Nov 17 - 7:37 PM

Brook Lopez (rest) did not practice on Monday.

In addition to his foot scare, Lopez dealt with back soreness last week so the Nets are likely just letting him catch some extra rest. He's expected to play in Tuesday's game vs. Atlanta and on Wednesday vs. the Hornets.
Nov 16 - 12:35 PM

Brook Lopez scored 18 points with nine boards, one assist, one steal and three blocks in 42 minutes in Saturday's overtime loss to the Warriors.

Lopez had a chance to win the game at the end of the fourth quarter with less than a second remaining on the clock, but he missed a wide-open shot from two feet out. Apart from that minor meltdown at the end of the fourth, Lopez posted yet another solid line and is currently returning top-40 value to his owners. The Nets are a disaster right now but Lopez should be fine as long as he can stay healthy.
Nov 15 - 1:41 AM

Brook Lopez played 36 minutes against the Kings on Friday with 17 points, 10 boards, one assist and four blocks.

He should have no problems putting up numbers and he just needs to stay healthy. Obviously the Nets playing him 36 minutes is all you need to know about how healthy he is right now. Of course, the risk of a foot injury makes him a volatile asset in fantasy. He's a must-start player, though.
Nov 14 - 4:11 AM

Brook Lopez (back, foot) played 35 minutes vs. Dwight Howard and the Rockets on Wednesday, scoring 14 points with 12 boards, one steal, five blocks and one turnover.

Brooklyn finally broke through for their first win of the season, moving to 1-7 with a game in Sacramento on Friday. Lopez has been the one constant positive for the Nets this year, and even tonight's 6-of-17 shooting was an aberration -- he came in at a steady 54.3 percent from the field.
Nov 12 - 12:07 AM

Brook Lopez will start on Wednesday against the Rockets.

He gave the NBA world a scare with his foot soreness, but he's all good. Expect him to get minutes close to 30. Also, Lopez could probably be traded for on the cheap with his owners highly concerned.
Nov 11 - 6:59 PM

Brook Lopez (back spasms, sore right foot) confirmed that he'll play in Wednesday's game vs. the Rockets.

Lopez should get his usual allotment of minutes tonight, so feel free to roll him out there for a favorable matchup with the Rockets.
Nov 11 - 12:37 PM

Brook Lopez (back spasms, sore right foot) is probable for Wednesday's game vs. the Rockets.

This is wonderful news for Lopez and the Nets, and it sounds like he should be fine moving forward. We'll have an update after Wednesday's shootaround, but he should be in the starting lineup. Those of you who added Thomas Robinson and Andrea Bargnani should look elsewhere for production.
Nov 10 - 7:05 PM

Brook Lopez (back spasms, sore right foot) was able to participate in the non-contact portions of practice on Tuesday.

While he's not out of the woods yet, this is a good sign for Lopez' availability against the Rockets on Wednesday. If Lopez is unable to suit up, Thomas Robinson and Andrea Bargnani would see a boost in minutes against Houston.
Nov 10 - 1:14 PM

Brook Lopez (back spasms, sore right foot) did not practice on Monday, but he is expected to play on Wednesday vs. the Rockets.

Despite being held out, the overwhelming expectation is that Lopez will return to action in the Nets' next game on Wednesday. Lopez's foot soreness was caused by his stepping on another player's foot, and despite the obvious injury risk, all indications are Lopez is going to be fine going forward.
Nov 9 - 11:52 AM

With no further tests needed for Brook Lopez' right foot, he is expected to return to the lineup for Wednesday's game vs. the Rockets, according to sources of Adrian Wojnarowski.

Given Lopez' extensive injury history with his right foot, the Nets were likely just being overly cautious in pulling him from Saturday's game after he experienced some soreness in his foot. Lopez made it through 72 games last season, and the surgery that he underwent back in January of 2014 to reposition the bones in his foot has a very high success rate. Lopez does remain an injury risk, and will be a sell-high candidate for most the year, but when healthy, he's fully capable of putting up early-round value.
Nov 8 - 3:17 PM

X-rays were negative on Brook Lopez's right foot on Saturday.

Exhale, Brooklyn. Hopefully some soreness in Lopez's foot just led to this precautionary X-ray, but there's still a chance he misses time here. The Nets may want to just sit him down because of this gigantic red flag that went up. The Nets' next game is Wednesday, so we might see more Thomas Robinson and Andrea Bargnani against the Rockets.
