The general consensus seems to be that meniscus tears aren't that serious, that they have a pretty quick recovery time, etc. The general timeline seems to be about 6 to 12 weeks. That's why we all have a lot of hope about Gallinari being back by the end of November.
At the same time, I'm looking at Lonzo Ball and Collin Sexton, both who had meniscus injuries. Sexton missed 70+ games. Ball went down in January, and there are fears he won't be ready for the start of the season.
Why are those cases different? What are the chances that Gallo needs recovery similar to Ball and Sexton?
