NEW YORK (AP) - Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce are back in Brooklyn's starting lineup, but injured starters Deron Williams and Brook Lopez remain sidelined.
All four sat out Saturday's loss in Los Angeles, but Garnett (sprained right ankle) and Pierce (left groin) got the start Monday night against Portland Trail Blazers.
Williams and Lopez both sprained their left ankles Friday in a victory at Phoenix.
The Nets also are still without reserve Andrei Kirilenko because of back spasms.
