Nets' Lopez Undergoes Successful Arm surgery

Sports Network-ESPN—May 4, 2011

New Jersey Nets center Brook Lopez underwent successful arm surgery and is expected to be ready for the start of next season's training camp. The 23-year-old had a procedure on the upper portion of his right arm on Wednesday to remove bone mass and calcium deposits. The surgery was performed by Nets team orthopedic Dr. Riley Williams III and Dr. Andrew Weiland at Hospital for Special Surgery in Manhattan, the Nets said in a press release.

"Brook was bothered this year by a bony lump that developed after he was hit in the arm early this year," said Dr. Williams. "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."
