If Zilean leashed it with a tomb bomb and they could down it without taking too much damge, then possibly.
However that would be really difficult.
Even if everyone was still at full life after it (which would require a leash to be possible), and even at level 2, you're missing out on a lot of gold and xp in lane.
I was talking to my friend Blue Lambency (Power Beasts Forever), and his early game strategy was to clear the entire top jungle level 1. They can do this pretty quick and they do develop a very slight level advantage. Not only that, but their lane is pushed slightly. But *only* when they get back to lane. I pointed out to them that the time it takes to go heal / run to lane is so significant for the other team that Blue and his teammates were actually behind on gold and xp as a team.
