Nets center Brook Lopez will be out the next two games with a midly sprained right foot, according to a report on the NBA’s website.

Lopez was hurt while driving to the basket in the third quarter of Wednesday night’s game against Boston. He managed to stay in the game for a few minutes before coming out.

After seeing the results of the X-ray general manager Billy King thinks Lopez, who missed all but five games last season with a broken right foot, will be back soon. “Everybody agreed that there’s been no change, there’s not nothing there,” King said during a conference call. “There’s not a fracture or anything.”

“If it would have been Deron Williams and he had that pain, we probably wouldn’t have gotten an X-ray” King said.

On the season Lopez is averaging 18.5 points, 6.8 rebounds, and 2.5 blocks per game for the 10-4 Nets.
