Nets coach Hollins: It's doubtful Deron Williams will play Sunday
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4:45 pm ET) Nets coach Lionel Hollins told reporters point guard Deron Williams will "most likely" not play Sunday against Detroit, according to ESPN. Williams exited Friday's 95-91 loss to Cleveland with a low-grade right calf strain.

"He's not playing tomorrow, most likely," Hollins said "It's doubtful that he is going to play. I would say he's not but he may wake up in the morning and feel 100 percent. But I doubt it."

Williams is averaging 15.6 points and 6.8 assists this season. If he's unable to play, the team will likely turn to Jarrett Jack for the start. Brooklyn (10-15) is a 6-point home favorite against the Pistons (5-22).


Nets C Brook Lopez in danger of losing starting job?
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4:40 pm ET) Nets center Brook Lopez has resumed light basketball activities and will be evaluated on a daily basis until he's ready to return, ESPN reports. Lopez is working his way back from a lower back strain that has caused him to miss seven games. Coach Lionel Hollins would not reveal if he'll keep Mason Plumlee in the starting lineup once Lopez is ready to return.

"I am not going to squeal until I get stuck and I will cross the bridge when I get there," Hollins said. "I have my thoughts on it but I don't want to share them. I have been thinking about it but it is not something that needs to be talked about at this point."
