Pacers’ Chris Copeland recovering well from knee surgery

Chris Copeland was one of many NBA players to have his knee scoped earlier this offseason. The procedure was done leaving plenty of time for recovery prior to the start of training camp and the regular season, but his case was magnified considering he had just recently signed a two-year, $6.1 million contract with the Indiana Pacers. While the procedure initially caused some concern, Copeland is already well along into his recovery.

Earlier last week, Copeland told Scott Agness of Pacers.com that his knee is fine. The small forward has begun lifting weights, and he told Agness that his knee ailment “was more of a nuisance than an actual injury.”
Copeland has also resumed walking around, and he told Jared Zwerling of ESPN New York that his recovery is going well.
Copeland is one of several additions to a revamped Indiana bench. Last season with the New York Knicks, the 29-year-old averaged 8.7 points and 2.1 rebounds over 15.4 minutes per game.
