At the time of Los Angeles Lakers forward Metta World Peace’s
initial knee injury – which required surgery to repair a torn meniscus – it was expected that he would be sidelined for roughly six weeks. However, World Peace
is now poised to return Tuesday – just under three weeks following the procedure
– if his knee doesn’t show any signs of swelling today, according to Mike
Trudell of Lakers.com.
D'Antoni said @mettaworldpeace was "80-90%" likely to play. Basically, if he has no set backs/swelling from today, he's playing.
