Cleanthony Early will have an arthroscopy this week to remove a loose body in his right knee that had been revealed from an MRI (cont).— NY_KnicksPR (@NY_KnicksPR) November 18, 2014
(Early cont) He will be re-evaluated in approximately one month to determine his return to the court.— NY_KnicksPR (@NY_KnicksPR) November 18, 2014
That sucks! This means little to the Knicks' outlook over the next however many months-- Early's seen only spotty minutes-- but it's a bummer for Cle, who now has to do rehab and stuff instead of practicing and logging those occasional stints in games.
This surgery doesn't sound like a huge deal in the long run-- it's a clean-up, as opposed to a repair-- so hopefully we'll see a fully healthy and confident Early back sooner rather than later. Feel better, rook. Get rid of that loose body. Only the tightest of bodies in these knees.
