Lopez, Yi into the Breach

Big man down, big man down. The Nets will be missing Josh Boone and Stromile Swift Friday vs. the Raptors who start three seven-footers. Not a good thing unless Brook Lopez can live up to his hyperbolic billing as a top five center (per Keyon Dooling) and Yi stops acting like a "feather duster" (per Dave D). Meanwhile, Eduardo Najera prepares for his first real action and Vince Carter braces himself for boos...or not.
