NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — The Brooklyn Nets might face some problems as they hope to avoid their fifth straight loss. The Nets remain without two starters and two top reserves Sunday when they face Detroit.

Brook Lopez and Deron Williams both were out again with sprained left ankles. Andrei Kirilenko continues to be sidelined with back spasms, while fellow backup Jason Terry was resting a bruised left knee.

Coach Jason Kidd changed his starting lineup, going with Andray Blatche as the starting center in place of Lopez.
