Yes Markov is an elite athlete and I am sure that his conditioning and preparation is above par as well. The problem is that his injury is to a ligament.
With all that said, Markov should not even come close to trying to play this year. That would be foolish on PG's part to allow him to play even if he says he is ready for this season. The risk/reward leans too far to the former and not nearly enough to the latter.
If he's cleared to play, then he'll play. There's no benefit to keeping him out when he's healed. Someone that is healed cannot heal more.
