Lopez to start for Nets, Nene back for Wizards

Brook Lopez and Nene are both playing, giving the Brooklyn Nets

and Washington Wizards their full complement of big men.

Lopez was in the Nets’ starting lineup after missing two games

with a sprained left ankle. He leads Brooklyn with 20.5 points per


Nene has missed the last four games with right foot tendinitis.

Washington coach Randy Wittman didn’t say if he would start or how
