Vinny could be back in two weeks, but he'll be wearing a brace for some time. All in all we lost our second offensive forward for quite some time.
"Knee scope" just means arthroscopic surgery performed on the knee. It can be used to treat/diagnose a number of different things, not just a meniscus tear.

Bure did have arthroscopic surgery twice when he was with us, but he had also had major reconstructive surgery on his knee twice in his career to that point. So his knees were in bad shape well before we got him and scoped him. I don't know anything about Vinny's injury history, or whether he has had previous issues with the knee.
