Maybe start him off slow and work him back into things rather than playing him his normal minutes. Err on the side of caution.
Well when he was diagnosed they said it was a 4 week injury. His last game was on December 30th. This Thursday will be 1 day short of a month of his last game.
When he was cleared for rehabilitation he was also cleared to practice. It doesn't seem to quick to me. I'd like to see him start, but only get 20-25MPG at least on the easy opponents so he can get back into the flow of things. He is 33 years old after all.
