PARIS Cowan-Hall's damaged ligament will be given time to heal naturally after Millwall opted against sending the winger for immediate surgery.
Lions physio Bobby Bacic says an operation would have ruled Cowan-Hall out of the rest of the season and he will instead remain in a brace for another fortnight.
The January signing from Wycombe suffered a hairline fracture of his tibia and damaged a stabilising ligament at the back of his knee against Reading.
Speaking to the club's official site, Bacic explained: "Paris is making encouraging progress.
"He had a review yesterday and the plan from here is similar to what we did with Chris Taylor a few years ago, when we held off immediate surgery and gave the ligament a chance to naturally heal to the fracture site.
"If we operate now Paris would miss the whole season whereas he has a good chance of returning to action before the end of the campaign if natural healing occurs.
"He therefore needs to remain in a brace for a few more weeks to protect the delicate healing site after which he will be reviewed again."
