    Doctors found during Lopez's postseason physical that the screw had bent. That the screw bent under the weight of Lopez’s frame goes to show just how much stress big men put on their lower bodies. Nets center Brook Lopez has had the screw replaced in his surgically repaired right foot and is expected to resume basketball activities in August. The procedure to replace the screw is relatively minor, and Lopez is expected to be back on the court to resume basketball activities by August. The Nets can only hope they aren’t dealing with just that in the latest complication with the right foot of center Brook Lopez. Lopez made his first All-Star team and ranked fifth in the NBA in Player Efficiency Rating . He missed seven games early this season with a sprained right foot but ended up averaging 19.4 points in 74 games.
