Update: Brook Lopez will NOT play tonight against the 76ers

USA TODAY Sports

Update: Brook Lopez will not play tonight against the 76ers. Mirza Teletovic will start at power forward and Kevin Garnett will start at center for the Nets. Jason Kidd may have influenced by Teletovic's 21 point performance against Philly in preseason.

Earlier:

Brook Lopez, who injured his ankle last Thursday night against the Los Angeles Clippers and missed Friday's game against the Detroit Pistons, expects to play tonight when the Nets face off against the Philadelphia 76ers.

The 76ers will be without center Daniel Orton who was suspended one game for "fighting" with Meyers Leonard this past weekend, so Lopez's size will certainly give the Nets an advantage in the middle.

Other "injury-related" news, Joe Johnson, who didn't practice yesterday (illness) seems to be feeling better and it looks like he's a go for tonight's game.
