Last season was a big step forward for Brook Lopez, however he had to have a screw in his right foot replaced after the season’s conclusion. Lopez claims he has completely recovered from the surgery and is in great condition. He told ESPNNewYork, “It’s great, it’s back to 100 percent. I’m out there doing everything.” This good news comes with training camp fast approaching in less than two weeks.
Lopez’s recent surgery was the third operation on his foot in two years. Before his foot issues began in 2011, Lopez was regarded as a very durable player who would not get injured frequently. It will be interesting to see if Lopez can play through the upcoming season without missing any time due to injury.
