Morabito, just 21, suffered unthinkable heartbreak early into the New Year when he twisted awkwardly on his troublesome knee at training, sending him spiralling toward yet another lengthy stint in rehabilitation.
The promising midfielder opted for the quicker, but controversial LARS surgery and was able to begin his recovery soon after the procedure, which involves grafting a synthetic ligament in the place of the ruptured ACL.
Just over five weeks later, Morabito has already begun a running program, revealing he is confident that he will be back in full training by the middle of the year.
''The key is I have not lost a lot of strength," Morabito told the media on Wednesday.
Notably, the LARS fix is likely to cut Morabito's recovery time basically in half, from the alternative rehabilitation timeline he would have faced had he undergone a full traditional knee reconstruction.
But, the young ace did reveal that he still suffered significant discomfort after his surgery, which was not a full synthetic graft.
Morabito's surgery involved still taking another graft from his hamstring, as well as the artificial optic fibre ligament.
"To be honest, it was traumatic two or three weeks post op," he said.
"I was likening it to a traditional recon because the hamstring graft was quite sore.
"But speaking to (Sydney star) Nick Malceski and (Geelong's) Dan Menzel, they said it was weird that things move quite quickly by week three.
"I got to two and a half weeks and thought that I wasn't looking like running here at all.
"And then it hit week three and I started jogging. Two weeks after that I feel quite good."
Morabito is expected to make a playing comeback with new Fremantle affiliate club Peel Thunder in the WAFL competition mid-season.
