Nets’ Brook Lopez undergoes foot surgery

The Brooklyn Nets announced yesterday that center Brook Lopez underwent surgery to replace a bent screw in his surgically-repaired right foot, according to Tim Bontemps of The New York Post. General manager Billy King told reporters that Lopez is expected to resume basketball-related activities in August.
“In the x-rays they took [during Lopez’s postseason physical], they noticed the screw was bent, so just being proactive, they took it out,” Nets general manager Billy King said during his pre-draft media availability. “He’ll be back in August. He was pain-free, so he didn’t even notice it was bent until the x-rays were taken.”
Lopez is now sporting a walking boot following the procedure. The big man is said to be healing properly, and the Nets say they have no reason to believe he won’t be ready by the time August rolls around. The bent screw didn’t do any additional damage to Lopez’s foot.

This marks the fourth issue involving Lopez’s right foot in the last 18 months. He had two surgeries during the 2011-12 season and then had to sit out seven games early on in the 2012-13 season due to a mild sprain.
