    Default Lin Can Be Back As Soon As 4 Weeks

    Injured Lin could be back with Knicks sooner than thought


    Jeremy Lin’s six-week timetable could be expedited to a month depending on the level of arthritis surgeons discover in the meniscus cartilage during the arthroscopic procedure on his left knee, according to a top orthopedic surgeon.

    Dr. Wellington Hsu, an orthopedic surgeon/assistant professor at Northwestern, said professional athletes could return from torn meniscus surgery in two-to-four weeks.
    However, because Lin’s is a “chronic’’ tear, by definition some arthritis exists in Lin’s knee, according to Dr. Hsu, who has not treated the Knicks point guard.
    “If they don’t see anything else wrong in surgery, just see the tear, typically you can get back in the NFL in two to four weeks and I’ve seen NBA players get back within that period,’’ Hsu told The Post. “That’s assuming there are no surprises.’’

    Let the boy heal. no point in rushing it back. if he can come back 100% in 4 weeks fine. instead of getting injured in game 3 of the playoffs.

    I would rather a 100% Lin in 6 weeks rather than 70% in 4.

    Post-surgery they're still saying 6 weeks but he's pretty young, you'd expect there's every chance he can recover quicker. But there's no point rushing him back into the lineup if he's not 100%.

    They're saying it depends on the injury. If it is just the tear he can be back in 2-4 weeks. Whatever the right thing is will be done. Besides, a 100% Lin wont help if we dont even make it to the second round.

    Well like I said, he's out of surgery and they're still saying 6 weeks.
