Like I said, as long as he recovers properly and gets healthy, then that's all I care about. It's kind of expected that he'd miss the rest of 2012 anyway. There's no need to rush. Don't want to come back too soon and fuck up his knee again somehow on the Asian and Indoor swing coming up. If he's ready to come back by the Asian/Indoor season, great. But if he doesn't, then so be it. As long as he achieves a clean bill of health.
Yeah, it's not really much of surprise the rest of the season is unlikely. It's what many have been suspecting. The broader issue can he really ever come back. That's the real question, not missing the least important part of the season post US.
