As if the Brooklyn Nets didn't have enough problems.

An ESPN report revealed Monday that Nets forward Paul Pierce broke a bone in his right hand Friday night in a loss to the Houston Rockets. 

The injury will force Pierce, who came to the Nets in a mega-trade last off-season, to miss as much as a month of action.

The Nets had already been struggling mightily, posting a dismal 5-12 record during their first 17 games, and fighting injuries ranging from mild to severe to key players including Deron Williams, Brook Lopez and now Pierce. 

The Nets kick off a two-game home stretch this week, playing the Nuggets Tuesday and the Knicks Thursday at the Barclays Center.
