Found this when I was trying to find info on D’Angelo Russell. This guy is an orthopedic surgeon, and formerly an NFL team doctor. By his estimation, Russell should be back just after the new year. 

https://nypost.com/2017/12/22/nets-gm-dont-expect-to-see-russell-or-okafor-anytime-soon/   Russell is recovering from arthroscopic surgery back on Nov. 17. General manager Sean Marks said on

D'Angelo Russell (left knee) has been ruled out for Tuesday's game against the Celtics.

A report from ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski indicated that Russell is expected to miss at least three games with this knee injury, but the Nets' haven't yet offered up an official timetable for his return. Spencer Dinwiddie (hamstring) is expected to start on Tuesday night sans Russell, so he could be an option in DFS, and there will also be more opportunity for guys like Sean Kilpatrick and Caris LeVert.

I’m kind of thinking that there is more to this injury..

MRI already revealed bone contusion. So atleast it’s not meniscus tear or acl which requires several months to heal. Should be at least 2 weeks imo.

Wth is Yahoo doing just add the INJ tag already . #clowns

The rule is they won't give players the INJ tag unless they are expected to miss more than 7 days.  As of now,  the team hasn't yet announced how much time he may miss.  Until then he won't get it.

It takes up to six weeks for the knee joint to re-establish normal joint fluid after arthroscopic surgery. Because of this, you may not realize the benefits of your surgery for four to six weeks. There is a high degree of variability in recovery times. Some patients are able to return to regular activities within two weeks, but most require roughly six weeks before they can resume full activities – including sports – comfortably. Reduction of pain and swelling and improvement in strength, motion, and coordination may continue for three to four months.
