Brooks, Okur out Friday night

By Mike Mazzeo

As expected, Nets rookie shooting guard MarShon Brooks (toe), center Mehmet Okur (back) and small forward DeShawn Stevenson (knee) will all miss Friday night's game against the Timberwolves due to injury, the team announced.

Shooting guard Anthony Morrow (ankle) is probable, while Johan Petro (stomach virus) will be available. Both were scratched prior to Wednesday night's 99-96 victory over Detroit, leaving the Nets with juts eight healthy players going into the game.

Coach Avery Johnson may have updates on Brooks and possibly center Brook Lopez (foot) during his media availability prior to Friday night's game.
