    Did Fletcher need surgery? If so, I had completely missed that.

    Anyway, good news from the article is that Fletch could be back on the court ahead of that 6-8 week original timeline.

    I think a bunch of us missed that. This was the first I heard that his injury required surgery.

    News about potentially returning earlier than expected is good, tho.

    Dr. Vidal is a great guy & an even better surgeon. He worked on my daughter's elbow from overuse in competative gymnastics. It was a crazy 2 part surgery where a piece of bone had to be removed and then 7 holes were drilled in the bone along the bicep so that the marrow could regenrerate cells to the cartaliage in the joint that had been reduced to the point where she basically had bone-on-bone. She was competing in less than 6 months & a year and a half later, she's back to full strength.

    Doc Vidal did my shoulder too. Can second the fact he's a good guy. And my shoulder is still attached, so he must know what he's doing.

    Hopefully it wasn't the same guy who operated on Gallinari

    What is this "Healing Response" surgery that Galinari had as an alternative to regular ACL surgery? I sure as hell hope that Spencer didn't opt for that.

    What exactly was Fletcher's injury? I didn't realize he needed surgery either.

    Torn meniscus I believe. We need him something awful right now so I hope he can make an early (as long as it is the smart thing to do) comeback.

    Are there any other knee surgeries that would take so little time for recovery?
