Well in general athletes come back from this surgery rehabilitated. You don't miss signficant time and then return at 60-80%. There are exceptions. And all surgery/medicine is evaluated on a case-by-case or person-by-person basis. Markov may not rehabilitate to 100%. But odds are in his favour.

Now, given his track record, he is likely to get hurt at some point in a full-season. But it's not likely that it will be related to this. He's gone through surgery and extended re-hab. They have exercised caution along the way and prolonged the re-hab where he's missed his re-hab milestones. When Markov comes back his knee will be fully re-hab.

He might not be fit. He might get injured somewhere else. But his knee will be ok. Dude is a millionaire and does not need to risk anything.
