standup is on a distinguished road
Here's the thing with knee miniscus injuries....
Anytime ya cut out cartilage we significanlty increase the chances of early age arthritits.
And if arthritis is bad at an early age.........say 45 .....and a total knee replacement is required...that is a hard reality. That knee replacement surgery says, you can never run again; limiting a key way to get a good cardio work out in for your life's remainder.
Also these total joints do not last forever....and the total knee revision surgery is heavy duty stuff for sure.
With our life expectancies increasing every year, the sad reality of a great many athletes.......lower extremity arthtritis too early in life with many years yet to live affecting quality of life in many ways.
I hope for Nathan a tiny minicus tear a quick recovery and a great long term prognosis. Go Bucks!
