Why not? It's not like it's unheard of.

Consider the cases we have of players who came back after really long-term absences. Patrice Bergeron. Saku Koivu. Even Mario Lemieux (proportionately of course!). All very cerebral players who missed a very long period of time on very debilitating injuries, and yet came back near their previous level.

It might not be immediate, but there's certainly reason to believe Markov will recover even from a long absence.
