Tweet of the Day: Players React to Lopez Injury News


Brook Lopez is the linchpin of the Brooklyn Nets.

On offense, on defense, even in the locker room and the huddles, the big man plays a vital role on the team.

Saturday morning, it was announced the center would miss the remainder of the season after suffering a broken foot in Friday’s overtime loss in Philadelphia against the Sixers.


A few NBA players tweeted their best wishes to Lopez.



This latest injury puts the Nets in jeopardy of not making the playoffs this season. Currently sitting with a 9-17 record, Brooklyn has been relying on the services of its center throughout the first quarter of the season. Without him available, coach Jason Kidd may be forced to put heavier minutes on veterans such as Kevin Garnett.

Now the question for Brooklyn becomes whether or not to continue fighting for the playoffs or to throw in the towel this year and start rebuilding for the future. Regardless of the standings, the most obvious concern rests with Lopez and whether or not this will significantly impact his career.

Injuries seem all too common in the NBA and this latest one makes the Eastern Conference, especially the Atlantic Division, that much more laughable.
