Brook Lopez will return to the lineup tonight against the Houston Rockets, for the first time in seven games. According to Tim Bontemps, Lopez will be on a minutes restriction, playing no more than 24 minutes.

He will start alongside Andray Blatche, as Kevin Garnett will get a rest day. With the Nets playing tomorrow in Memphis against the Grizzlies, a rest day was expected, especially with Lopez active.

James Harden remains a game-time decision for the Rockets, as of this writing.
