Nets, on the other hand, opened their preparations for the new season with a practice game against SESI/Franca Basketball Club of Brazil.

BKN vs LAL DREAM11 Team News:
Los Angeles Lakers –
Lakers have no fresh injury concerns before this game. Kyle Kuzma is set to spend a few more days on the sidelines following a setback in his recovery. The 24-year-old small forward is now dealing with a left foot “stress reaction” injury and will have another MRI once Lakers return from China.
Quinn Cook could make his Lakers debut in this game if his health permits. The 26-year-old point guard is a very good option from the bench as he can pop up with a flurry of points in a short period of time.
While summer arrival Quinn Cook has been upgraded to questionable ahead of this game following some progress in recovery from a sore left calf.
In addition, new signing Jared Dudley and Kostas Antetokounmpo both have been listed as doubtful for this game and will be assessed.
LeBron James, Anthony Davis, Danny Green, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Avery Bradley, JaVale McGee, DeMarcus Cousins, Quinn Cook, Alex Caruso, Rajon Rondo, Kyle Kuzma, Jared Dudley, Troy Daniels, Talen Horton-Tucker, Dwight Howard, Kostas Antetokounmpo, Zach Norvell Jr., Jordan Caroline, Demetrius Jackson, Devontae Cacok
Brooklyn Nets –
