Carter is looking at a long recovery and most likely will never be the same. Must hit the draft/FA this offseason.
it isn't anymore. the issue with the failures is that most were either on their last leg as a player or waited til the last option was microfracture.
the younger the person the higher the success rate. under 40 is better but younger than 30 is ideal due to the way the body reacts to the surgery.
