    I'm hopeful because of his age and athleticisim that he will bounce back. He's got the right kind of mindset to work through this. very tough kid. I'd be surprised if he didn't come back to form next season.

    That's why im upset is because he wont be able to build on his game this off season and will now have to do constant rehab. My girl had a torn menisus and ACL and had to do so much rehab, like 3 times a week. At best he will return to his old self but his game won't take that next step until the 2013 off season.

    I believe he tore the mcl as well. They say ROSE wont return to around XMAS, so I wouldn't expect much from Shumpert next season.

    GOOD NEWS: We should be a playoff team regardless.

    So, best to take it SLOWLY with Shump. Give him full time to recover, then another month to slowly practice and work himself into game shape, then another 2 months to slowly work way back into rotation.

    My goal would be to get Shumprt back to 100% by next Feb/March. Give him a month to 6 weeks where he's playing normally again... so he's ready to roll come playoffs next May.
