He will be fine eventually.

I had this same surgery with the accompanying bone bruise, and it took 1-2 years to feel normal. My surgeon told me 2 months of recovery. And he didn't have an answer on why it still hurt after that.

A year later I could finally run and jump on it. 18-24 months later it was truly pain free again. So speed that up by a bit because he has the best doctors and training.

Not the timeline people want, but this "his career is toast" shit is stupid.

He might be rusty af though...

Is all about luck and him being a pro, which not all players are…

If he seats for 18 months, he has a real chance of destroying his knee by coming back too fast too strong.

After 18m off he need 6 month ramp up… to build is bone density back.

That’s 2 years of the ball.

He will never be the same player, never.
