Ronnie Brewer injury update: Knicks guard playing through knee issues

Ronnie Brewer of the New York Knicks has been experiencing swelling in his knee, limiting his ability to play, although he has started every game thus far this season.

Nelson Chenault-US PRESSWIRE

Ronnie Brewer's knee apparently hasn't healed fully from an injury that caused him to miss most of the New York Knicks' training camp, as Marc Berman of the New York Post reported Sunday that his knee is still bothering him.

Brewer reportedly began dealing with swelling in the knee when the team visited Orlando about two weeks ago, and is still not completely better. He left the Knicks' bench in their Friday night loss to the Houston Rockets.

The veteran wing player tore his meniscus and underwent surgery in September, causing him to sit through the team's preseason schedule, but he found himself starting at small forward when the season came around, alongside Raymond Felton and Jason Kidd. Brewer has started every game, providing a valuable defensive role while chipping in 7.3 points a game. But the 27-year-old has been limited in the team's past several games after playing a major role at the start of the season: he hasn't played over 30 minutes since the Orlando game, and has been held under 20 in each of the last two games.
