Brook Lopez, who rolled his ankle Thursday night against the Los Angeles Clippers is "questionable" for tonight's game against the Detroit Pistons.
Injury report for tonight's game vs. #Pistons : Terry (knee) and Kirilenko (back) are OUT... Lopez (sprained left ankle) is Questionable.— Brooklyn Nets (@BrooklynNets) December 13, 2013
After the game, Lopez said that he felt like he was good enough to return against the Clippers, but with the game already out of hand and the Nets up by 20 points in the fourth quarter, there was no need to test that theory.
At this point, you have to think the Nets, considering how they've handled injuries this season, won't push Lopez to play. The one concern for tonight's game, though, is the size of the Pistons front-line, with Greg Monroe, Josh Smith and Andre Drummond.
The other updates have Jason Terry and Andrei Kirlienko at least 1-2 weeks away.

As we mentioned earlier, Kirilenko told Devin Kharperitan that he was at least "10 days away," though Kidd wouldn't put a timetable on the return, saying it may happen this calendar year, it may happen next calendar year.
