Beat writers just out of the Nets first practice since Christmas Eve report that both Deron Williams and Kris Humphries participated, but that MarShon Brooks and Damion James were in street clothes. The Nets, who've played six games in eight days, worked with the coaching staff at the Raptors training facility inside the Air Canada Centre. The Nets play the rising Raptors Friday night.
While Brooks (sprained left ankle) is "questionable", the Nets PR staff tweets that James (sore right foot) is "doubtful" while Humphries and Deron Williams are "probable".
Avery Johnson said Brook Lopez will be at the Heat game Saturday . "I'm looking forward to seeing him,'' said Johnson.
