As someone who just had knee surgery -- granted ACL surgery isn't the same as this procedure -- I can say that the rehab is not guaranteed to be successful. He cannot bear any weight for up to 6 weeks and that will cause his leg muscles to atrophy to the point where they will need to be rebuilt.
The Suns might be better off by shutting him down for the season to not put any pressure on his rehab. They can go through the season and see who they have in reserve. If they make the playoffs without Amare, fine.
Penny Hardaway had similar surgery and never played the same afterwards.
