Paul Pierce out 2-4 weeks
Now that Pierce is out 2-to-4 weeks with a non-displaced fracture of the third metacarpal of his right hand and Jason Terry (sore left knee), Andrei Kirilenko (back spasms) and Deron Williams (sprained left ankle) all are still out for the time being, the Nets will be asking more of Lopez, which is fine by him.
“I try to be reliable and consistent,” Lopez said. “I want guys to be able to trust I’m going to be there and know there will be some consistency to what we do.”
