Always repair
Yep. He has his entire career to think about. Now the Suns MUST make some moves. I think this might also mean the Suns let him walk after his contract is up. He has been soft and now out for 2 to 6? I don't know if they can bank on him to be healthy and he is going to want a ton of money to stay. I feel bad for the guy because there was signs he could come into his own.

Question now becomes... (If Cam Johnson is out for a long period) is the relationship between Jae Crowder and the Phx Suns repairable?

No team has jumped to trade for Crowder, but then again Torrey Craig has been looking pretty good at times

Maybe Jack Landale at PF??

Why? I'm not a professional athlete but I had the snip and I've been back to normal ever since.
My buddy is a physical therapist dealing with these all the time. He told me that if I ever get a tear opt for it being repaired. He said that longer term prognosis is much better, and he sees less return or repeat customers so to speak. He told me longer term joint function is impacted with a snip. I would have to imagine that is more so with professional athletes that pound on those joints for a living.

Depends on the level of tear. If I can be repaired it’s generally safer long term even though recovery time is longer. You can come back quicker if they remove it but it can become a greater risk down the road.

I’d think a guy going into FA is going to be as cautious as possible with an injury like this.

Jock said in an interview he and Monty talked about him playing next to Ayton at some point.

Shams Charania confirms there is concern Cam Johnson has a torn meniscus in his right knee.

So six months from now would be April. Assuming he could rehab enough to step on a court. I would think you would need a month to get in shape, etc. That's May. Pretty much wipes out the year.

I think it likely wipes out the season unless Cam Johnson doesn't get surgery.

Kelly Oubre Jr. didn't return after successful arthroscopic surgery to his right knee in March of 2020.

I wouldn't be surprised if Jock gets the start tonight. Dude is earning his time, plus it will allow Biyombo and Saric to get more playing time


If we don't have Cam or Crowder at PF it only makes sense

Duane Washington Jr. is a father.

This must be why he was out for personal reasons last night.
