Brooklyn Nets center Brook Lopez will miss the next two games with a mild sprain in his right foot, according to the Nets Public Relations twitter account.

The Nets also announced that Lopez received X-rays on his foot, and that the X-rays came back negative. Lopez did not play in the fourth quarter of Wednesday night's game against the Boston Celtics, although the team did not announce the reason why he failed to play.

Lopez missed 61 of the team's 66 games last season with two different injuries in his right foot last season. Lopez missed the first 32 games last season with a broken bone in his right foot, then broke a different bone in his right foot in his fifth-game back for the Nets.

Lopez has played an important role for Brooklyn this season, who own a 10-4 record and are currently tied with the New York Knicks for 1st place in the Atlantic Division. Lopez averages 18.5 points, 6.8 rebounds and 2.5 blocks per game.
