Game 1 - Nets @ Wizards - Monday, December 26, 7:00

The lockout is over. Free agency is over. Preseason is over. Christmas is over. Time for Nets Basketball! The Nets traveled to Washington on Christmas night to get ready for Monday's much delayed and much anticipated Opening Night of the 2011-12 season...the Nets' last in New Jersey.

The Nets are still a work in progress. Brook Lopez is out for a month, having gone down last week. His replacement, Mehmet Okur, has gone through one full practice and may or may not start. He will play. Several other rotation players have had fewer than a week's worth of practices to get ready, including Kris Humphries, Shawne Williams and DeShawn Stevenson. But the Nets do have Deron Williams who of all the NBA's superstars has played the most competitive basketball since the lockout.

The Wizards are in the second year of their rebuilding, with few changes since the end of last season. John Wall claims he's grown an inch. He's that young. Big men JaVale McGee and Andray Blatche are back as well. The newest additions are rookies Jan Vesely and Chris Singleton and veterans Roger Mason Jr. and Ronny Turiaf, both ex-Knicks. The game will be broadcast on YES.
