lopez injury injury

A year ago at this time, Brook Lopez was preparing?to play in his first All-Star game.

This season, Lopez is missing in action, out for the season after breaking his right foot for the second time, a devastating turn of events for the talented young center.

In an effort to prevent potential future problems, in addition to repairing the fracture, Lopez also underwent a procedure to redistribute the weight and balance of his foot.

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.

This weekend, we ran a poll in the wake of the Brook Lopez injury asking SNY Nets readers what impact they thought the injury would have on the team.

Thirty five percent said they believe the Nets will miss the playoffs due to the Lopez injury. Conversely, just 12% said they thought the team would come together in spite of Lopez being out for the remainder of the season. More than half (53%) of respondents said the Nets will make the playoffs, but exit early. Overall, 65% of readers believe Brooklyn will still make the postseason.

At this point, the Atlantic division is the only thing saving Nets fans from jumping off the ledge, myself included. When I heard the Lopez news, I was stunned. I also tweeted, "Season over." Was that drastic? Maybe, but it was my knee jerk reaction. Now that I've had a few days to let the news digest, I'm still upset, but I do think the Nets can stay afloat. In fact, I'd argue that this is probably the only season that the Nets could survive this type of injury.

After a 10-4 start, including four straight wins and nine of their last 11, the Brooklyn Nets are about to experience a little bit of adversity.

The team announced on Thursday afternoon that Brook Lopez will miss the next two games, at the Orlando Magic on Friday and at the Miami Heat on Saturday with a mild sprain of the right ankle. X-rays on the ankle were negative.
