Parker: Livio Jean-Charles out 6 months with knee injury

It's been nine days since word came out San Antonio Spurs first round draftee Livio Jean-Charles would undergo right knee surgery after he was injured in a FIBA U-20 game against the Czech Republic representing his home country of France.

Now it seems ASVEL's Vice President and current Spurs All-Star Tony Parker has a timetable on Jean-Charles' injury: six months.

According to the French website L'Equipe, Parker made the announcement Wednesday at his "Tony Parker Camp" (via Google Translate).

This means that ASVEL, who had to let Alex Acker in Limoges, not replace Livio Jean-Charles, announced six months out by TP following his knee injury.

ASVEL will begin their season on October 5 against Strasbourg which could mean Jean-Charles most likely wouldn't begin playing after fully recovering until sometime in February based on the timetable presented.
