A precautionary MRI on Nets center Brook Lopez's right foot Monday came back negative, ESPN New York reported.

Lopez did not practice Monday, putting his status for Tuesday's game against Oklahoma City in doubt.

"We'll see how he moves around and continues to progress," coach Avery Johnson told ESPN New York. "But at some point, he'll have to practice before we stick him in a game."

Lopez is averaging 18.5 points, 6.8 rebounds and 2.5 blocks per game for the Nets. He missed the past two games with a sprained right foot after suffering the injury during the third quarter of last Wednesday's win over the Celtics.
