This doesn't sound like a huge deal, but it's certainly not good news. Howard Beck, who apparently hops back onto the Knicks beat now and then to torment us, reported whilst I was lunching that Ronnie Brewer tore the meniscus in his left knee sometime within the last two weeks and recently got surgery. Here are Beck's tweets:

Knicks G Ronnie Brewer will be out 6 weeks after surgery for meniscus tear in left knee. Injury happened w/in last 2 weeks.

Based on Brewer's rehab timeline, he would miss three preseason games but perhaps be back for the final two.

And here's Ronnie himself:

I appreciate the prayers and get well soons from everyone. Much appreciated. Will for sure be 100% for season opener.

So, better now than later, since Brewer should theoretically be available for all the basketball that counts. It's still a bummer for a new guy at a very important (and, with Iman Shumpert already out rehabbing reshumpifying his own knee, understaffed) position to miss training camp. I'm sure he'll still be in the building peacefully pedaling a stationary bike while everybody else plays, but it's just not the same. Oh well. Get right, Ronnie, and take your time.
