Brook Lopez confident injury is behind him

During the recovery process from his second foot injury last season, Brook Lopez was hesitant to say he was back to 100 percent.

But that, Lopez said Monday, was just a case of him being hesitant because he hadn’t played in any competitive game settings yet.

“It was being cautious,” Lopez said at the opening of the Nets team shop at Barclays Center. “And, honestly, I hadn’t played any 5-on-5 or competitive basketball, but now, being that I’ve been here for three weeks, I’ve played 5-on-5 with everyone on the team … we’ve got 15 guys going every day, and I’ve had no problems. I’m very confident in my foot.”
