    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.

    Yeah sorry i missed that in your post. They did say 6 on the Knicks' facebook page... which makes this article very interesting. Who knows, maybe he'll recover quick. Hoping for the best.

    just to keep things on the safe side

    I miss Lin and hope a speedy recovery. Though i want him to be a Knick for a long time, so no rush back. Without a healthy Amar'e and Lin, we won't go far in the playoffs anyways

    Leave Lin alone....let Lin chill while soakin-up all the success he made for himself....at best let Lin, Novak, and Jefferies play in three of the summer-league games to help the coach select keeper players.

    Something that crossed my mind and Clyde Frazier must have read my mind because he mentioned it on air was how does a young player who has only played in 20 NBA games get a knee injury that requires surgery. Sure anyone can injure a knee if you have a collision but that's not Lin's situation. Just wondering if Lin might be more like Brandon Roy or Greg Oden, a guy that has a proclivity for knee injuries. I think the Knicks have to re-sign him but it concerns me that he might have knees that are made of glass.

    IMO you answered your question yourself, he played only 20 games which means he wasn't prepared to play the minutes he played under such a pressure. C'mon, he barely played pro basketball in almost a year, so when he had to start and play significant minutes his knees gave up. If you didn't do anything but jerked off on your coach for a year and then started running some heavy miles every morning I guarantee you sooner than later you're gonna be a dead man walking.
