Updates on Deron Williams and Brook Lopez

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Injuries, injuries, injuries. The Nets got lucky through the first month of the season with minimal injuries, but now they have two of their starting players out. Saturday afternoon, the Nets provided updates on Deron Williams' calf injury and Brook Loepz's back strain.

So, in simpler terms, the two are day-to-day. Both are unlikely to play Sunday against the Detroit Pistons, but they could be available for the Nets' following game, at home against the Denver Nuggets.

As Lenn Robbins points out, it could have been worse for DWill, who missed the second half of Friday's game with a calf injury.

In other news, Lionel Hollins was non-committal about where he thinks Lopez will fit on return.
