Jahlil Okafor Expected to Miss 4-6 Weeks Following Knee Surgery

Bucks County Courier Times—March 22, 2016

Staff writer Tom Moore reports on the knee surgery that Philadelphia 76ers rookie center Jahlil Okafor underwent on Tuesday.

He spoke with Robert G. Marx, MD, MSc, FRCSC, a sports medicine surgeon at Hospital for Special Surgery, for background on meniscus tears and recovery time.
