Nets center Brook Lopez will be out for the next two games with a mild foot sprain, the team's PR department reported via Twitter on Thursday morning:

Although the x-rays were negative, several analysts were quick to remember last season's injury to the same foot that took Lopez out for all but five games: Lopez, 24, has started in all 14 games for the Nets so far this season and leads the team with 18.5 points and 2.5 blocks per game. New Jersey is 10-4 and tied for first with the Knicks in the Atlantic Division.
