Brooklyn Nets first year coach Lionel Hollins will begin the regular season without Brook Lopez as the center is recovering from a mild right foot sprain.. Hollins confirmed this during shootaround this morning saying that Lopez still feels pain when he goes hard.
After Hollins ruled Lopez out of tonight’s game, he was asked about the “progression” Brook is making and if his starting center could play in Saturday’s game. Lionel responded by making another pregnancy joke in reference to the question.
Lionel Hollins, when asked about how Lopez was progressing: “I have no idea what progressing means. Is he pregnant or not pregnant?”

I wonder if Hollins will pull the pregnancy joke on Deron Williams? D-Will is usually good for a few injuries a year. Lionel might actually think Williams is pregnant though. Take a look.
