No: Hyaline cartilage has a very limited ability to heal. There are hosts of scientists looking at how to enhance its healing potential. However, there are no good ways to do it currently. If a fracture that enters a joint also damaged the hyaline cartilage, the best that can be done is to get the joint fracture repaired as anatomically as possible.
