There's a handful of notable players who did recover( Amare, Jason Kidd, Kenyon Martin, Grant Hill after many surgeries) and at least as many or more who didn't, from various injuries. So, what are you referring to?

lol, I love how people just throw out fractions of health based on nothing.

1/3? why not 4/9th? I think 5/11th is slightly more likely than 6/13th, but wouldn't bet against 3/7th

They were 18-7 or 18-9 without rose in the line up.

Some of you guys aren't very optimistic about Rose's recovery. He is only 23yrs old. Time is still on his side with the healing process. I think he makes a full recovery. The only concern going forward is that he should give up that jump hop step while slashing to the rim. He will have to find another move that is not as stressful on those knees and feet. Anytime you jump, there is also the possibility of an awkward landing especially at an angle or going towards left/right. He does this alot. You also have to wonder if he lands on someones foot which could also cause injury. That jump hop has alot of momentum. That move has been around since the 80s when i first noticed some college players at Texas using it. Look at the play in slo mo. That move was no joke..

The actual physical recovery is only part of it. There's the psychological recovery as well. He may be much more tentative when he comes back. We won't know until he's back on the court.

An anterior cruciate ligament injury heals, but most often, the ligament is not quite the same. The torque and the forces that are applied to the ligament during the kinds of activity that Rose applies are extreme. He had strong ligaments that supported these forces -- well, he did. But he doesn't anymore. He can still play, but the chances of Derek Rose being *the* dynamic player that we've all come to love are slim. Ask Grant Hill.

The physical recovery in and of itself will be a long road, and a difficult one at that. I think Rose can still be a good point guard, but I doubt seriously he'll be the cutting and slashing guard who creates his own shot. It's not the end of the world. Plenty of guards learn to play with less speed, like Fisher and Billups. But he'll need help from now on. He won't be on CP3's level anymore.
