brook lopez surgery brook lopez

The Nets announced that Brook Lopez underwent successful surgery on his broken right foot today, and he will likely be out of action until next season.

In addition to repairing his fractured fifth metatarsal, Lopez also underwent a procedure known as a "first metatarsal osteotomy" in his right foot.

That osteotomy procedure essentially repositions a bone in the foot to help stabilize the foot, decrease stress, and help it bear weight more evenly.
