How long will it take for Jeremy to come back from Meniscus surgery? Well, lets look at two players who have recently had surgery to repair torn meniscus ligaments:
Tayshawn Taylor of Kansas - December 2011, one week
Chris Paul - Feb 2010, Seven weeks
Obviously, the recovery time can vary greatly based on the severity of the tear, the condition of the cartilage, and just how fast they heal. A huge positive is seeing how well these guys have played right after their surgeries.
The Knicks still have to make the playoffs or all this speculation is moot. It looks like they'll be battling the Bucks and Sixers for the 8th spot.
