NEW YORK -- Brook Lopez has some good news for Brooklyn Nets fans.

With training camp a little over a week away, Lopez says his surgically repaired right foot is 100 percent healthy.

"It's great, it's back to 100 percent," Lopez told ESPNNewYork.com Saturday from an NBA Cares event. "I'm out there doing everything."

That's great news for the Nets, who are expecting big things from Lopez and the rest of their star-studded starting five.

Lopez, 25, had the screw in his right foot replaced in late June because it was bent.

The 7-foot center is coming off of a career year in 2012-13, averaging 19.4 points and 6.9 rebounds.

He and the Nets will start training camp in Durham, N.C., on Oct. 1.

"We just want to win, that's the bottom line," he said Saturday in Brooklyn.

Lopez made his first All-Star team and ranked fifth in the NBA in Player Efficiency Rating this season.
