Considering the current projected timeframe, Copeland is expected to be ready for the start of training camp.Copeland signed with the Pacers earlier this offseason after spending last year with the New York Knicks. Over 56 games with the Knicks, Copeland averaged 8.7 points and 2.1 rebounds in 15.4 minutes per contest. The 6’8” forward also averaged 42.1 percent from three-point range.Considering having your knee scoped is a standard surgery, especially during the offseason, Copeland should be able to return within the current projected timeframe. Even if the Pacers decide to err on the side of caution and give him a bit longer, he should still be ready to go within plenty of time for the start of the 2013 regular season.Follow @hoopsinjurynews
