Conflicting Information on Lopez’s Progress
If you’re keeping tabs on Brook Lopez’s recovery timeline, I can understand your confusion.
Rather than try to make sense of it all, I’m just going to give you the conflicting information of today and let you decide.
Today marks the seventh week since Lopez had surgery. The original timetable was 6-to-8 weeks. This morning, Billy King said Lopez is “on schedule” but he doubts Lopez will practice next week.
Before the game, Lopez – in a great mood, bolstered by the appearances of Jedis and Storm Troopers for Star Wars night at the Palace – said he hopes to return to practice Monday and was dunking and sprinting in an after-practice workout with Avery Johnson. He was very optimistic.
