Lopez, who did not practice Sunday, has missed eight games due to the injury, which caused him to miss Friday night’s loss to the Detroit Pistons.
“You always go with safety first. So, if he can’t go, we’ll go with the next guys up,” Nets coach Jason Kidd said. “I think we’ve become accustomed to that, so it’s not anything new.”
Lopez had been averaging 24 points on 69 percent shooting in his previous three games before getting hurt again.
“We’ll see how they feel tomorrow,” Kidd said.
