"Brook was bothered this year by a bony lump that developed after he was hit in the arm early this year," Williams said. "The mass was successfully removed today. A full recovery is expected, and Brook should be able to return to basketball activities in approximately six weeks."
"With this procedure, we both fixed the broken bone in Brook's right foot and repositioned another bone, so that his sole of his foot will bear weight more evenly than before," Dr. Riley Williams III, the Nets' medical director, said in a statement. "The repositioning portion of the surgery lessens the stress on the fractured bone, and decreases the likelihood of re-injury in the future."
