Coach Lionel Hollins says he thinks Brook Lopez will be ready for opening night but added it's up to doctors to clear him.

The hope is that Lopez is able to play, but he's been dealing with this foot injury for some time that Mason Plumlee has been doing the majority of work in camp recently. Consider Lopez more of a game-time decision here.

Nets have exercised contract options on Mason Plumlee and Sergey Karasev.

Plumlee has had a strong preseason and with Brooke Lopez sidelined, he could see some added minutes on the floor to open the season. Karasev has overcome a foot problem from early on in camp to earn himself a spot on the roster to provide depth.

The 76ers are attempting to acquire PG Marquis Teague from the Nets.

Just what Teague was hoping for when he woke up this morning--to be traded to the 76ers. Overall it wouldn't really matter what team Teague played for as he isn't relevant, nor would he see many minutes, but being in Philadelphia is almost a death trap at this point. He far off of fantasy radars.

Nets waived F Willie Reed.

Reed had his moments during camp and in the Summer League but ultimately wasn't going to crack the Nets roster. There's a very strong chance he lands elsewhere but could spend some time in the D-League.

Deron Williams (rest) will not play on Wednesday.

Williams is getting a routine day off as this has nothing to do with an injury. He keeps falling in fantasy drafts and makes for a great value pick in the fifth round. Checkout our complete fantasy analysis of the Brooklyn Nets, as well as every other NBA team, in the Fantasy Alarm NBA Draft Guide.

Kevin Garnett (illness) will miss the Nets' preseason finale Wednesday against the Celtics.

This will make the third straight game that Garnett has missed with this stomach bug. There has been no change to Garnett's status to start the season, but his minutes won't be much higher than 20 per game. Fantasy owners in most leagues can ignore him unless it's a plug-and-play on a light Thursday night or something.

Andrei Kirilenko will start Monday in place of Mirza Teletovic.

The Nets are still tinkering with their starting lineup, which is why Kirilenko is getting the start on Monday. However, Teletovic is the better player to own in fantasy because he can hit three pointers and score a bunch of points, while AK-47 will not a get a lot of playing time and will eventually get hurt.

 Kevin Garnett and Markel Brown will not play Monday against Philadelphia as each are sidelined with a stomach virus.

This will be the second straight game that Garnett has missed with this stomach bug. There has been no change to Garnett's status to start the season, but his minutes won't be much higher than 20 per game. Fantasy owners in most leagues can ignore him unless it's a plug-and-play on a light Thursday night or something.

Kevin Garnett (stomach virus) will not play Sunday against the Celtics.

This does not sound like anything serious. If Kevin Garnett misses significant time, Mirza Teletovic would go from a borderline play to a must-own in 10-team fantasy leagues.
