Default Another big falls down to stress: Lopez out for year

Quote:
Brook Lopez has been diagnosed with a stress fracture of the fifth metatarsal in his right foot, will undergo surgery on Friday and could miss the entire season.
We initially heard that normal recovery time from such a procedure is four to six weeks, but Sports Illustrated's Zach Lowe wrote on Twitter that he was told by a doctor who works with the Lakers that Lopez will need three to four months for healing and rehab, which would basically put him out for the entire season. Meanwhile, the Nets are targeting a February return. Don't cut him until we get more information on a timetable. Johan Petro sits behind him on the depth chart, but it's Kris Humphries who gets the big boost. Shelden Williams, Jordan Williams and Shawne Williams will all see a bump in minutes as well. Oh, and this news also ruins the potential deal for Dwight Howard that had been cooking.
Finding healthy 7 footers is not an easy task.

Dwight, welcome to LA!

All the Lakers need now is for Bynum to stay healthy for 2 months and average 16/11.

2 weeks of no weight bearing, plus 4 more weeks of wearing a hard boot... good luck getting in game shape after sitting on your butt for 6 weeks... plus that's if everything goes smoothly, the guy's a 260+ lb 7-footer... very unlikely he plays a game before the trade deadline in March...

what a bad luck for the organization! I honestly thought D12 was going to Nets... now their GM will have to be very creative to keep D-Will on the team

You got to be smoking something. I would not want turk back here, even if it meant Dwight Howard came with him.
