    Russell Westbrook

    Is anyone else getting annoyed at how easily Westbrook comes back from these knee surgeries? I know everyone heals differently but damn he makes Rose look bad when he comes back almost instantly.

    He's not playing well, but he still looks pretty quick and explosive.

    Russell Westbrook

    Russ came back quickly because he got his meniscus partially removed this time instead of just repairing it. So as a result, the recovery time was short. Had he got it repaired, like Rose he'd be out for the season right now.

    And he also shortened his career by doing it.

    I'm not 12, so I can be patient and wait for Rose to come back at full health. I'd much rather be patient and get a longer career out of a guy then rush a guy back and cut years off of his career.

    I don't really understand throwing Rose into this.

    Westbrook's last two surgeries haven't been anything close to Rose's. The one in October was to reduce swelling caused by a loose stitch from his first surgery, not too serious. And the most recent one was an arthroscopic surgery to reduce swelling.

    Westbrook hasn't torn an ACL like Rose.

    Their meniscus tears weren't the same either. Rose tore his medial meniscus, versus Westbrook tearing his lateral meniscus (he missed 6 months, pretty much the expected time range).

    This isn't to say that Westbrook hasn't recovered at a great pace before, but comparing the surgeries he's returned from to what Rose has gone through isn't really pertinent here imo.

    My feelings about Rose is that he will never play a full season no matter how healthy he gets.

    I agreed reluctantly.

    If he had an ACL tear, then maybe.

    I think this thread is stupid, there is a severe diference between a torn acl and a sprained knee or whatever westrook had LOL

    I'm only talking about the meniscus tears. Not the ACL injury. Russ had surgery the day after Christmas and is back playing. If Rose had a surgery of any kind on his knee in that time span I have a feeling we'd be hearing the organization say he's out for the year.

    Rose's seemingly indifference is a lil disturbing. So hard to get a read on things. It's all kinda surreal to me...
