This can go both ways though. AD had surgery on new years eve and many thought he didn't have enough time go through rehab and be ok.
It usually takes a year for ACL injuries to be healed. 9 months is the average time to go through rehab. AD was ready in training camp, merely 7 months after his surgery.
