WASHINGTON - Brooklyn Nets confirmed on Sunday that center Brook Lopez will miss at least the next four NBA games due to a lower back strain.
It was revealed after an MRI taken on Sunday but it's not clear how the big guy injured his back. It's not the first time Lopez suffers from a injury. Since 2011-12, he has missed 136 games.
Lopez is averaging 16.1 points, 6.2 rebounds and 1.7 blocks this season.
