NEW YORK (AP) - Nets center Brook Lopez is sitting out a second straight game Monday against Philadelphia because of a sprained left ankle.
Coach Jason Kidd said Lopez didn't move as well as he would have liked Monday morning, and he and the training staff decided it wasn't worth the risk to play him.
Lopez missed seven games earlier this season with a sprained left ankle and was hurt again Thursday in a victory over the Los Angeles Clippers.
Mirza Teletovic got his first career start, with Kevin Garnett moving to the center spot.
Philadelphia guard Michael Carter-Williams missed his seventh straight game with a skin infection, and coach Brett Brown said the hope is for the rookie to return this week.
