No, this is his other knee. This makes microfracture surgery on both knees which is going to hamper him forever. Running and explosiveness have always been his strengths and those are going to basically disappear now that both of his knees have undergone the dreaded microfracture.
He doesn't have the perimeter game to become what Chris Webber has, so I'm pretty uncertain as to what he'll bring to the table when he does play again.
Bad luck, plain and simple, but that's par for the course with this franchise.
