GM Billy King Addresses Brook Lopez's Status
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J.—Monday at the PNY Center, following a pre-draft workout, General Manager Billy King addressed the media regarding Brook Lopez's status following foot surgery. The team announced Monday morning that Lopez was recovering from surgery to replace a bent screw in his right foot, which was twice broken the season before last, limiting Lopez to just 5 of 66 games in 2011-12. The 25-year-old center recovered from that injury to play in all but seven games this year, his first All-Star campaign.
Lopez is scheduled to resume basketball activity in August.
