Kerber: Lopez "Line" Due to Sprain

Fred Kerber reports Saturday that the "very, very small line" found in Brook Lopez's CT scan three days ago was not the result of his original break on December 21, but instead a by-product of his ankle sprain on March 4.

Additional tests on the Nets center, who has missed all but five games this season, found a small line or crack resulting from the ankle sprain he endured after coming back from a broken foot.

Reports Friday, while not definitive, suggested that the line was the result of the original break but had been missed.
