Brook Lopez

  1. Reports: Rockets, Nets discussed Deron Williams trade recently. But no more.

    Jan 10, 2014, 3:15 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Brooklyn Nets

    Remember a couple years ago how desperately the Nets were trying to pair Dwight Howard with Deron Williams? Howard wanted it to happen but Orlando wasn’t going to give him exactly what he wanted, so they sent him to Los Angeles (in a deal that worked very well for their rebuilding plans). That ended up…

  2. Nets get $5.25 million disabled player exception approved for injured Brook Lopez

    Jan 8, 2014, 8:45 AM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Brooklyn Nets

    It’s been well-documented that the Nets will have the league’s highest payroll this season when including luxury tax costs, a bill that will total in the neighborhood of $180 million when all is said and done. The league offered Brooklyn a small amount of relief on Tuesday, granting the Nets a disabled payer exception worth…

  3. Deron Williams out Wednesday vs. Warriors, maybe longer with sprained ankle

    Jan 7, 2014, 2:42 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Brooklyn Nets

    Brooklyn has won three in a row and picked up a nice win over Atlanta Monday night in a battle of “which team sucks less with its best player out?” However now it looks like the Nets are going to have to get by without Deron Williams at the point a little longer — and…

  4. Deron Williams out for Nets Monday night with more ankle issues

    Jan 6, 2014, 6:17 PM EDT

    Deron Williams

    Nets point guard Deron Williams — who has already missed 11 games this season due to ankle injuries — is out again Monday night as the Nets host the Atlanta Hawks. Stephan Bondy of the New York Daily News tweets some of the details. Deron Williams is out tonight with an ankle sprain. There was…

  5. Surgery on Brook Lopez’s foot included procedure meant to save his career

    Jan 5, 2014, 5:00 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Brooklyn Nets

    When Brook Lopez was lost for the season with a fractured foot injury, there was no doubt that surgery would be required before the long rehabilitation process would begin. But in addition to the repair, a second procedure was done in hopes that Lopez can have a long NBA career and the repeated injuries would…

  6. Report: Jeremy Lin switching to adidas with new shoe deal

    Jan 3, 2014, 12:50 PM EDT

    BASKET-US-TAIWAN-TPE-NBA-PACERS-ROCKETS-LIN

    Knock his game if you want — although you have to admit it has taken a healthy step forward this season — but you have to know Jeremy Lin is one of the most popular players in the NBA. He is fourth in NBA All-Star voting for the Western Conference’s backcourt, with more votes than…

  7. Kevin Garnett admits his rhythm off in Nets system

    Jan 2, 2014, 12:19 PM EDT

    Milwaukee Bucks v Brooklyn Nets

    Putting players in a position to do what they do well and succeed is one of the biggest jobs as a coach. Look at the best — Gregg Popovich, Phil Jackson — and you find systems designed to get guys to do what they do well and not play to their weaknesses. Conversely, there is…

  8. June draft will be biggest NBA story of 2014

    Jan 1, 2014, 9:30 AM EDT

    Andrew Wiggins

    The beauty of sports is that our predictions are often off the mark — like life itself it goes in directions we can’t predict. Still, we have some ideas of what we will look back on in a year as the biggest stories in the NBA for 2014. If the Miami Heat three-peat it will…

  9. Kyrie Irving set for MRI after feeling a ‘pop’ in his knee during loss to Pacers

    Dec 31, 2013, 8:00 PM EDT

    kyrie

    It was one of those injuries during a season filled with them that looked as though it might cause Kyrie Irving to miss significant time. Late in the third quarter of the Pacers’ win over the Cavaliers on Tuesday, Irving’s knee seemed to buckle a bit on a drive to the basket, which caused him…

  10. Stan Van Gundy lays out Nets situation… and it’s not pretty

    Dec 31, 2013, 3:51 PM EDT

    Washington Wizards v Brooklyn Nets

    You can’t just buy an NBA title anymore. You can spend a lot of money on stars but you need to do it wisely (see the Miami Heat), but you can’t just throw a random roster of stars together. Mark Cuban tried it and learned he needed to build a team differently, one with parts…

  11. NBA says there’s been no increase in rate of ‘significant’ injuries this season

    Dec 30, 2013, 10:43 PM EDT

    Derrick Rose

    Unless you’re a hardcore fan of one of a small group of five NBA teams, the injuries sustained this season to many of the league’s star players have made this a dismal campaign thus far. The Thunder are one of the five, but we’ve seen them have to deal with missed time from Russell Westbrook,…

  12. Report: Questions of if Pau Gasol could play for Lakers just means more trade speculation

    Dec 30, 2013, 1:18 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Los Angeles Lakers

    The Lakers lost at home to the stumbling Philadelphia 76ers Sunday night, a low point in a season with a number of them for the Lakers. Pau Gasol wasn’t there — and that was Gasol’s decision, according to Dave McMenamin of ESPNLosAngeles.com. It was Gasol’s decision to sit out as his team extended its season-high…

  13. Jason Kidd on report he’s losing the locker room: ‘I can’t answer to what you guys make up’

    Dec 28, 2013, 3:30 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Brooklyn Nets

    Jason Kidd is reportedly in danger of losing his job in the middle of his first season as an NBA head coach. The Nets have had to deal with more than their fair share of injuries to be sure, including the one to Brook Lopez that is expected to sideline him the rest of the…

  14. LeBron James strains groin, questionable for Saturday vs. Portland

    Dec 28, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Sacramento Kings

    If you were looking forward to a full strength Miami Heat team taking on the Trail Blazers Saturday, you may be disappointed. LeBron James strained his groin in the second quarter of the Heat’s loss to the Kings Friday night and is questionable for the anticipated Saturday showdown, so reports Ethan Skolnick of Bleacher Report.…

  15. Report: If Nets don’t turn around, Kidd likely gone by All-Star Game

    Dec 27, 2013, 7:48 PM EDT

    Washington Wizards v Brooklyn Nets

    The Nets first mistake was hiring a coach with no experience — a guy who was going to need a learning curve — and putting him in charge of a veteran team with a one-year (two at best) title window. There was no margin for error. Yet everything has gone wrong. It started with injuries…

  16. Mark Cuban didn’t like sleeved Christmas jerseys, but they didn’t really impact shooting

    Dec 27, 2013, 1:11 PM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Golden State Warriors

    It was the first question about all the games on Christmas Day: What did you think of the Christmas Day NBA sleeved jerseys? Personally, not a huge fan. It’s not the sleeves, those don’t bother me (I know some people hate sleeves, I just see Patrick Ewing at Georgetown). However, the oversized logos and the…

  17. Report: Kidd frustrated, calls out Nets; Garnett backs him

    Dec 26, 2013, 9:20 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Brooklyn Nets

    Shocking news, the Brooklyn Nets have a dysfunctional locker room. I’m not going to spend a lot of time kicking this dead horse, we’ve done that plenty in these parts, but we have to pass along this report. After the Bulls thumped the Nets on Christmas Day in front of a national television audience, Jason…

  18. Deron Williams: Brooklyn Nets’ season ‘a nightmare’

    Dec 26, 2013, 9:30 AM EDT

    Deron Williams

    When he traded Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Jason Terry to the Brooklyn Nets, Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge explained how he got enough assets to make the deal worthwhile to Boston. Ainge, via Mike Petraglia of WEEI: “Brooklyn showed a great deal of interest in putting the ‘Dream Team’ together, with expense…

  19. Jason Kidd, Brooklyn Nets come up empty against Chicago Bulls

    Dec 25, 2013, 3:33 PM EDT

    Reggie Evans

    The Brooklyn Nets and Chicago Bulls woke up early, left on their sleeved Christmas pajamas and opened the NBA’s Christmas Day slate. Jason Kidd probably wishes he never got out of bed. A game after blasting his team for “kind of getting comfortable with losing,” Kidd oversaw Brooklyn’s 95-78 loss to Chicago on Wednesday, an…

  20. Carmelo Anthony out with sprained ankle, will not play Christmas Day vs. Thunder

    Dec 25, 2013, 1:52 PM EDT

    NBA: Knicks v Magic

    The best laid plans of mice and David Stern… have been blown up by injuries. In another blow to the NBA’s Christmas Day showcase lineup, Carmelo Anthony will not play due to a sprained ankle suffered Monday night. Anthony wanted to go, came to the arena and met with the team’s medical staff, but the…

  21. Chicago Bulls-Brooklyn Nets is NBA’s worst Christmas Day matchup since…

    Dec 25, 2013, 11:30 AM EDT

    Derrick Rose

    The NBA has built a Christmas Day empire by featuring the league’s top teams and players on Dec. 25. It’s become an honor to play this day, and those in the league recognize the accomplishment of getting on the schedule. Fans see it too, annually expecting to see the NBA at its regular-season best. That’s…

  22. Jason Kidd says Nets “getting very close to just accepting losing”

    Dec 24, 2013, 11:27 AM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets v. Philadelphia 76ers

    First it was Mike D’Antoni lashing out at Lakers fans, then Sacramento’s Mike Malone smacking his team around, now Jason Kidd doing the same with the Nets. Apparently NBA coaches took the Festivus “Airing of Grievances” part very seriously. Kidd was frustrated after his team played a close first half then just got blown out…

  23. The Extra Pass: The nightmare that is LeBron James; plus Monday’s recaps

    Dec 24, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Miami Heat

    You know those nightmares where you can’t run away fast enough? The ones where your legs turn to mush and the baddy behind you keeps gaining ground? That’s a recurring nightmare for lots of people, but it’s a recurring reality for Atlanta Hawks head coach Mike Budenholzer. Budenholzer was on the sidelines with the San…

  24. Nets to try and get Disabled Player Exception for Lopez, add player to roster

    Dec 23, 2013, 5:08 PM EDT

    Denver Nuggets v Brooklyn Nets

    The Nets are capped out and have 15 guys on the roster — they cannot add another body under the NBA rules. However with Brook Lopez out for the season, they want to. Need to, really, when you consider the injury history of players on the roster. So the Nets are going to file the…

  25. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Santa brings presents to Blazers, Thunder; lumps of coal to Atlantic

    Dec 23, 2013, 3:59 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Cleveland Cavaliers

    Oklahoma City almost took over the top spot in the rankings, until they laid an egg Sunday night. The Blazers hold on for another week, but they didn’t look elite last week even in their wins and this week sees a few big tests.   1. Trail Blazers (23-5, Last Week No. 1). If the…
