Brooklyn Nets center Brook Lopez, looking noticeably slimmer at a community event Wednesday at Barclays Center, reiterated that there is “no question” he will be ready to play at the beginning of the season.

Lopez, who said he just got cleared to begin running last Monday, is recovering from foot and ankle surgery. He was limited to 17 games last season.

“I’ve tried to remain positive. Finally being back is a great feeling. I’ve never been so excited to do little things like jump rope, stretch and run a little,” Lopez said at a Coca-Cola-sponsored event to promote healthy lifestyles for Boys and Girls Club teenagers in Flatbush. “But there’s no question I’m going to be ready to go at the beginning of the season.”
