Brook Lopez, who injured his ankle last Thursday against the Los Angeles Clippers, and who has missed the Nets' last two games, is listed as "questionable" for Wednesday night's game against the Washington Wizards.

It seems, though, that Lopez is actually targeting a return on Wednesday, to play against a Wizards team who at the moment, at 10-13, is the 6th "best" team in the Eastern Conference. Conversely, the Philadelphia 76ers, who the Nets blew out on Monday night and who they play again this Friday, are in the midst of a stretch in which they've lost 10 of their last 11 games.
Jason Kidd says Paul Pierce will continue to come off the bench, but that may change. Brook Lopez still on target to play tomorrow.— Stefan Bondy (@NYDNInterNets) December 17, 2013
He's "targeting" tomorrow, so it may very well be that we see Lopez play. However, as we know, target days haven't meant much this season. Lopez is "questionable," "on target to play tomorrow" and "day-to-day."
We likely won't know until tomorrow evening if he will indeed suit up and play.
