Usually when teams use the specific term "strain" they mean it to be a Grade 1 tear. Which for most muscle groups is a 2-4 week injury that requires only rest.
With the hamstring it can be a bit trickier since it's a major muscle (group of them really) that is involved in almost every athletic movement.
I'm guessing they shut him down for two weeks, evaluate him again, then start rehab with jogging, biking and pool work.
He'll be fine but it's concerning that (much like we all saw with Rose, and I'm not saying it's to nearly the same degree, not at all) coming off a surgery he was ramping up activity and hurt himself. He'll need to show much more resilience in order to get through the season.
