Injury Update: Deron Williams, Brook Lopez and Andrei Kirilenko Out against the Blazers

Once again, the Brooklyn Nets will be without Deron Williams (ankle), Brook Lopez (ankle) and Andrei Kirilenko (back) for tonight's game against the Portland Trail Blazers.

Lopez seemed unlikely to play after he was seen limping out of Los Angeles on Saturday night when the short-handed Nets lost to the Clippers.

Williams had re-injured his ankle after he stepped on Andray Blatche's foot on Friday night against the Sacramento Kings. It doesn't sound serious, but, this will be his second-straight miss, after having missed the entire preseason.

Kirilenko continues to deal with back spasms, and will miss his 6th game of the season.

Still no word on whether or not Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce, who both sat out on Saturday, will play, but it seems likely, at this point. It is expected that Shaun Livingston and Blatche will start in place of Williams and Lopez.
