Unfortunately, news regarding the players who are currently on the Nets' roster is entirely focused on injury updates. And its mostly bad news.
The one good thing we learned on Tuesday is that Brook Lopez ran for the first time since having surgery on his right foot. Avery Johnson wouldn't give an update on MarShon Brooks, but Deron Williams hinted Brooks won't return from his broken toe until around the same time that Lopez gets back.
Johnson wouldn't offer an update on DeShawn Stevenson (right knee) either, and said that Mehmet Okur had a "procedure" on his ailing back. Okur may return for Saturday's game in New York or Monday's game vs. the Bulls.
Only 10 Nets will be available Tuesday in Indiana, and Larry Owens will likely get the start at small forward.
