Brook Lopez Suffered a Stress Fracture in His Foot. Dwight Howard Must Be Bummed

Horrible news for the New Jersey Nets: Center Brook Lopez has a stress fracture in his right foot, he needs surgery, and he’ll be out until at least February.

So for the time being, forget about Dwight Howard going to New Jersey. There’s no way the Magic are dealing the league’s best center for potentially-damaged goods. Lopez is soft to begin with; how much softer will he be coming off foot surgery?

Not only does this damage the idea of Dwight Howard going to the Nets this season … but the chances of Deron Williams staying just took a massive hit.

Time for the Lakers to step up and overpay for Howard.

Because you want to see it first!
