Brooklyn Nets general manager Billy King insists that there is no plan to put any restrictions on Brook Lopez next season after his foot injury last year.

Brooklyn Nets center Brook Lopez will not have any minutes restrictions next season as he prepares to make his comeback after a lengthy spell on the sidelines.

The 26-year-old missed most of last season following foot surgery and the Nets saw their title hopes diminish in his absence.

"Right now, there is no plan to put any restrictions on him, but I think as we do with all players through the pre-season, you build them up," general manager Billy King said, Nets Daily reports.

New coach Lionel Hollins will also hope that point guard Deron Williams is able to stay healthy as they look to make an impact in a competitive Eastern Conference.
