Nets Injury News: MarShon Brooks Injures Foot

Brooklyn Nets' guard MarShon Brooks will be out for 7-10 days due to tendinitis in his right foot. Brooks is currently wearing a walking boot and will be re-evaluated on the weekend. He is likely to miss the Nets first preseason game against the Philadelphia 76ers. Mike Mazzeo of ESPNNewYork.com quotes Coach Avery saying that the injury is not severe.
"We don't anticipate any long-term effects with this injury," Johnson said.
"If he comes out of the boot in two days, we rehab him for two days and then condition him, then maybe he can play at the end of next week, maybe the last preseason game at Nassau (Coliseum on Oct. 24), fine," Johnson said, "but that's really conservative."
Brooks says that he could play through the injury, but with Coach Avery is being conservative for now, and rightfully so. Last year the Nets led the league for most players used and rotations due a plethora of injuries.

In his rookie year last season, Brooks averaged 12.6 points and 2.3 assists in 29.4 minutes per game on 42.8% shooting. Brooks at one point was closely matched with Rookie of the Year Kyrie Irving in terms of points scored per game before getting hit with a foot injury back then. After being asked to carry the team several times due to injuries, Brooks will likely remain as the sixth man for the team as he learns from multiple All-Star Joe Johnson.
