Brooklyn Nets center Brook Lopez is confident that he’ll regain his health after undergoing yet another surgery to repair his broken right foot Jan. 4.

“It’s going to work,” Lopez told the New York Post. “I’m definitely thinking that way. Some people say, ‘If this doesn’t work ...’ I won’t think that. I’m definitely thinking the other way."

Lopez suffered a season-ending fractured fifth metatarsal of his right foot Dec. 20 in Philadelphia. He is expected to be ready for the start of training camp.

Lopez attended Thursday night’s game against San Antonio, the first game he’s attended since suffering the injury.

Lopez told the Post that he’s going to wear custom sneakers.

“They’re going to take new molds of my foot and then build my shoes,” Lopez said.
